Dark Days Dark Times
Released: 9 July 2020
Dub Pistols have released ‘Dark Days Dark Times’(Feat. Mc Navigator & Seanie T) – the second single taken from their highly anticipated new album “Addict” set for release on September 11th 2020, through acclaimed label, Sunday Best Recordings.
“This was one of the first songs recorded for the album, drawing on the problem of gang related gun crime from a disenfranchised youth and the county line gang issue. All the while, highlighting how austerity and its effects, like closing youth clubs etc, has driven kids onto the streets and into these gangs.” Barry Ashworth says of ‘Dark Days Dark Times’.
‘Addict’ is the eighth studio album from the highly respected group. The record promises a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims and feelgood party anthems and is already shaping up to be one of the year’s essential releases.
“I recorded over 3 albums worth of music to get to the finished version of ‘Addict’,” says Dub Pistols mastermind Barry Ashworth. “Every time I finished a song, I would come up with another idea for a track and an artist I wanted to work with. It’s been incredible to collaborate with all the legends that I have on this record, but it’s also the new emerging talent such as Natty Campbell and Gardna that have really given me new enthusiasm. The album has taken two years to record but has been 25 years in the making.”
