The Selecter, release their new studio album ‘Subculture‘ on June 15th 2015, via DMF Records. The album, which comes out on CD, 12″ Heavyweight Vinyl and Digital, has been produced by Neil Pyzer and expertly mixed by Prince Fatty; and is the calling card of a ‘classic’ band that are completely tuned into the issues and challenges of the modern world.
Whenever successful bands from the past reform they invariably start trading in nostalgia and become “heritage” acts. No one expects them to grow artistically or continue to excel at the same things that brought them popularity in the first place, but that’s what The Selecter have done in the past few years. They’ve played at major festivals like Coachella, the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury, headlined two UK tours and recorded three studio albums, the latest of which, ‘Subculture‘, is mixed by UK dub-master Prince Fatty.
The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black, whose recent series of shows on BBC 6Music were hugely well received, and whose book ‘Black By Design‘ continues to sell in droves worldwide, alongside an incredible talented band of musicians, including Neil Pyzer (Spear Of Destiny) Will Crewdson (Rachel Stamp) and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson (who features extensively on ‘Subculture’).
