The unstoppable Dub Pistols are on the road for a series of "Mucky Weekends" in support of their recently announced fifth album 'Worshipping The Dollar', out 2nd July on Sunday Best Recordings. The band call at York, Newcastle, London, Glastonbury (yes, they do know the festival isn't on), Barrow In Firness, Hertford, Guildford, Southampton, and Bristol during May before heading into a full festival programme.
Barry Ashworth and his motley crew created their latest long-player in between gigs every weekend following the release of acclaimed 2009 album 'Rum & Coke'. 'Worshipping The Dollar' sees a return to lyrical themes explored on earlier albums with deeper and more conscious lyrics and a pacier feel to the tracks, which mirrors their increasingly frenetic live shows.
From their early beginnings as a soundsystem project, Dub Pistols have grown into a party-rocking live band that ignites festivals and venues. Their infectious blend of ska, dub, hip-hop, electronic music and punk has won them many fans around the globe over the past 15 years and, following sold-out shows across Europe, they were justifiably voted the Best Live Act at DJ Mag's Best Of British Awards at the end of 2011.
