THE BLACK SEEDS are Australia-bound on their headline album launch tour

In September of this year New Zealand’s The Black Seeds released their highly anticipated sixth studio album Fabric. The album reached #3 on the US Billboard Reggae Charts, #3 on the ARIA Jazz & Blues Charts and #4 on New Zealand’s Album Charts – drawing acclaim from critics and fans around the globe.

The South Pacific reggae-soul legends have shared the length and breadth of their luscious and diverse new album – including the anthemic summer tune ‘Better Days’, the dance heavy ‘Freakin’ and their brand new track ‘Back To You’ (read about it here in the Huffington Post premiere) with sold-out appearances across their homeland over the past month.

While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band nearly two decades ago, The Black Seeds’ sound casts a wide net, layering funk, soul, Afrobeat, and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundations. Guitarist/vocalist Barnaby Weir describes their sound as “contemporary groove music with influences from soul and funk and reggae rhythms.”

Described by Clash Magazine as “one of the best live reggae acts on the planet,” The Black Seeds legendary eight-piece live show infuses raw energy and good vibes wherever they go, fueling multi-platinum sales and a growing worldwide following. With countless sold out tours behind them and performances at many of the world’s leading festivals, The Black Seeds live show delivers a soul party on time, every time.

Australian audiences get the chance to offer another warm welcome to the band when they return for a series of shows in November, taking in The Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Brunswick Heads, Sydney, Long Jetty and Melbourne before the final shows in Margaret River and Fremantle. With long, hot Summer nights just around the corner, there’s no better way to relax into the groove than with the sweet soul filled reggae stylings of The Black Seeds. Get yourself amongst it.
