O2 EMPIRE :: THE BLACK SEEDS :: 18/07/13

A week today, The Black Seeds roll into town for their only London show this year. They arrive fresh from rocking one of the biggest reggae festivals in Europe, Summerjam in Germany, and head off almost immediately to support Chase & Status and Skunk Anansie at the Serengetti Festival.

For the last 15 years, the boys have been rocking dancefloors across the globe with their soul charged reggae sounds. Along the way they have released 5 albums, had a track featured on ‘Breaking Bad’, toured the world too many times to count, and been hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘the best reggae band on the planet right now’.

Last year they released their 5th studio album, “Dust and Dirt”, to critical acclaim, and swiftly followed that with a bevy of remixes, including choice cuts by DJ Vadim and Prince Fatty.

Support on the night comes from the amazing Samoan soulstress Iva Lamkum, whose rich syrupy voice has had MTV compare her to Amy Winehouse, and who some of you may know from the vocals she provided for the Sola Rosa hit ‘Turn Around’.

Advance tickets are £14.50 +b/f from Ticketweb.co.uk (08444 771 000) or from http://tinyurl.com/seedsempire or it will be £20 on the door.

From: 7pm
At: Shepherd’s Bush Green, W12
Nearest tube: Shepherd’s Bush or Goldhawk Rd
