The Black Seeds off to Aus

After another busy summer season that's seen them play to huge crowds all around Aotearoa, Wellington reggae/soul/funk/dub favourites The Black Seeds are packing their bags for their first ever tour of Australia in March and April. Timed to coincide with the Australian release of their debut album Keep On Pushing, the two week tour will give Aussie audiences a dozen chances to check out one of New Zealand's most energetic live acts, including three performances at the seaside Apollo Bay Music Festival and an album release show in Melbourne.

Keep On Pushing hits Australian shop shelves on March 31st, released by LOOP Recordings Aot(ear)oa through Shock Records. The Australian edition of the album will feature two bonus remix tracks lifted from the Keep On Pushing remix album Pushed, by Melbourne-based kiwi Jet Jaguar and LOOP Recordings labelmate 50Hz.
