Boss Hog announce first new album in 17 years

Boss Hog announce first new album in 17 years

New York City’s glorious garage-noise mutants BOSS HOG are back, with their first studio album in 17 years, ‘BROOD X’, due for release this March 24th via Bronze Rat Records.

Led by Cristina Martinez (ably assisted by her faithful sideman/husband Jon Spencer, as ever playing Flavor Flav to Cristina’s Chuck D), ‘Brood X’ feels less like the work of a group who’ve been on ice for so long, more a slithering and sludgy monster of an album, a boiling pot of hot funk keys, growling punk attack, searing blues breaks and the ground-shaking holler of Martinez.

Having recently shared a new track in ‘17’, whose dark observational poetry has already been championed by The New York Times, The Quietus, SPIN and more, today Boss Hog reveal ‘Formula X’...

Dreadzone announce new album "Dread Times" + UK tour dates

Entering an impressive 3rd decade, Dreadzone, one of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live bands to emerge from the post-rave scene, release a brand new album “Dread Times” on February 17th 2017.

‘Dread Times’ is the band’s 8th studio album and the 3rd release on their own “Dubwiser” label. Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on this album and it digs deeper into their dub and reggae roots whilst still keeping the beats fresh and the textures electronic. Conscious lyrics, social ills, matters of the heart and mind merge with 21st century dubwise flavours. The album is an eclectic rolling journey that recalls elements from an illustrious 23 year history while always looking ahead to the next phase.

Alongside core members Greg Dread, who produced...
