THE BLACK SEEDS announce the release of REFABRICATED + Tour

Ahead of their upcoming European tour, The Black Seeds are pleased to announce the release of REFABRICATED: Fabric Remixes & Rarities - a tasty selection of unreleased tracks, remixes & versions from their 2017 Fabric catalogue.

The six-track companion EP, out tomorrow Friday, 5th July, features three new, unreleased tracks from the Fabric sessions, as well as album re-workings from the likes of DJ Mu (Fat Freddy's Drop), MC Gardna (UK), Israel Starr (NZ), Bolt42 (NZ) & Deep Fried Dub (AUS).

The band, who have earned a reputation for rocking dance floors around the world, are set to return to the UK & Europe for 14 shows in August, including main stage slots at the UK’s legendary Boomtown Fair and Beautiful Days Festivals. Dates below.

Listen to the opening track, 'Hypnotized Again', a poignant slice of social commentary over a stone-cold groove. The Black Seeds return to their classic "roots reggae" sound that many of their long-time fans know and love.

With over 140,000 albums sold worldwide, and multi-platinum selling albums to their name, The Black Seeds have taken their boundary-crossing reggae fusion to the world over the past two decades, establishing strong followings across Europe and America, and spearheading New Zealand’s internationally renowned roots movements alongside acts such as Fat Freddy's Drop and Katchafire.

The band’s progressive sixth studio album Fabric was released successfully in 2017, reaching #3 on the U.S Billboard Reggae Album chart & NZ album charts, and #3 on UK & German iTunes Reggae charts. Now get ready for the new REFABRICATED EP, out everywhere this Friday, July 5th.
