THE BLACK SEEDS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘SOLID GROUND’ & EUROPEAN TOUR!

New Zealand eight-piece The Black Seeds are pleased to announce the European release of their highly anticipated new studio album ‘Solid Ground’ on August 11th and a 22-show European Tour from June 25 – August 12, 2008.

Solid Ground‘ is the follow-up to The Black Seeds’ third album ‘Into The Dojo‘, which achieved well over double-platinum sales at home, and garnered critical acclaim and strong airplay in Europe in 2007. The 12-track album, soon to be released through Sonar Kollektiv, has come on the back of two years of extensive New Zealand and international live touring, and promises to be the band’s finest yet.

Slingshot, the heavy-hitting, karma-inspired first single, has just been released to European radio, and will be available for digital download from June 30th.

The ‘Solid Ground’ album tour will see the band perform at some of Europe’s biggest music festivals including Roskilde (Denmark), The Lovebox Weekender (London), The Summerjam and Splash festivals (Germany), The Garance Festival (Paris), Valkhof Affaire (Holland), The Rip Curl Boardmasters and Bloom Festivals (UK) and many more. See full tour details below.

Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, The Black Seeds fuse dub, funk and afrobeat, with a vintage reggae base to produce heavyweight soul sounds from the South Pacific. Their unique style of mixing supremely infectious grooves and melodies with raw and undiluted conscious roots music is what sets them apart, and now sees their music spreading throughout the globe.

The raw energy of The Black Seeds’ live show has seen them gain a reputation as one of Australasia’s finest live acts. Effortlessly gliding between big-beat funk and deep roots-reggae, their supremely danceable live show delivers a freight train of flavour to the people on time, every time.
