It seems that 2020 is shaping up nicely on the Brighton gig front with many acts already booked to appear right across the city. You can now add the wonderful Dreadzone reggae stars to the list, as they are again going to be filling up the Concorde 2 with their ‘Music Army’ on Saturday 28th March 2020.
It’s a fact that Brighton and the Concorde 2 will always have fond memories for reggae-masters Dreadzone. They appeared at the Brighton venue on 24th February 2017 and literally one hour before that show was due to start, the band posted on their Facebook page. “Dread Times has entered the UK Top 40 Official Album Charts at Number 39. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved in making this happen and to everyone who has supported us and bought a copy of the album. This is our first Top 40 album in over 20 years!”
Dreadzone are one of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live bands to emerge from the post-rave scene. They have steadily been releasing albums and progressively bettering, refining and perfecting their own unique and inimitable take on dub since their inception in 1993. Still going strong after 25 years in the game they have also long been and still are, one of the best live bands around.
Over the past couple of years Dreadzone have been focusing more on the electronic and dub elements of their stage show. Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on the current eighth studio album ‘Dread Times’ which digs deep into their dub and reggae roots whilst still keeping the beats fresh and the textures electronic.
