Birmingham reggae favourites Steel Pulse will perform their landmark debut album, Handsworth Revolution, seen as a huge influence in the development of British reggae, in its entirety at a series of UK shows next April.
Steel Pulse formed in 1975 at Handsworth Boys School and went on to become favourites of Bob Marley, as well as being embraced by music fans from Rastafarians to Punks. They remain the only non-Jamaican act to win a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album with Babylon The Bandit in 1987.
Steel Pulse continue to tour with their familiar brand of cross-cultural, feel good music that carries striking political messages and are currently working on a new studio album for release later in 2015. The band are also working on a documentary – Steel Pulse, The Definitive History and you can view a trailer for this below.
Steel Pulse April UK dates:
- Thu 2 Manchester, The Ritz. Tickets.
