After a raft of Spring dates to kick off celebrations, the band will play at Glastonbury and a number of festivals before embarking on an Autumn tour to take them through until Christmas. Core members Greg Dread and original bassmaster Leo Williams with legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16 are joined by Bazil on technology and Blake Robert (Greg’s son) on guitar in the 2023 Dreadzone live line-up.
Dreadzone have long been, and still are, one of the best live bands around with a loyal and ever growing fanbase due in part to their storming and energetic live shows. Their 2023 shows will explore different aspects of their history and delve into their rich back catalogue. Greg Dread will also play a DJ set before all the Autumn shows.
Dreadzone have been releasing albums and progressively bettering, refining and perfecting their own unique and inimitable take on dub since their inception in 1993. They opened the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 1994 and began to bring their unique blend of electro, dub and reggae to a wider audience, going on to chart several singles including their Top 20 hit ‘Little Britain’. Their last studio album ‘Dread Times’, released on their own Dubwiser label, stormed into the Top 40 UK Official Album Charts on release – the first time the band have charted in over 20 years. More news soon on a brand new Dreadzone studio album coming soon.
