One of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live bands to emerge from the post-rave scene, Dreadzone have steadily been releasing albums and progressively perfecting their own unique and inimitable take on dub since their inception in 1993. Still going strong after 25 years, they are still one of the best live bands around, and they are coming to Harpenden on Sunday, April 21.

In 2018, Dreadzone moved forward as a five piece, after parting ways with their guitarist of 10 years, and are focusing more on the electronic and dub elements of their stage show – a sound they developed in earlier years of Dreadzone. Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on new album, Dread Times, which digs deep into their dub and reggae roots whilst still keeping the beats fresh and the textures electronic.

Dread Times is the band’s eighth studio album and the third release on their own Dubwiser label. The album stormed into the Top 40 UK Official Album Charts on release in 2017 – the first time the band have charted in over 20 years. The album also made the Top 10 in the Indie and Dance Charts.
