Dub Pistols, Return Of The Pistoleros


The mighty Dub Pistols are back with new album, “Return Of The Pistoleros,” released June 1st on Rob Da Bank’s much-loved label Sunday Best Recordings. The first single will be Ennio-Morricone-goes-drum n’bass album opener “Pistoleros,” listen here.

From the Armageddon horns and implacable bass march on opener “Real Gangsters” to the pure skank of “Sticky Situation” via collaborations including MC Earl 16, Lindy Layton, Jamaican stars Chezidek and main vocalist Seanie Tee (Dark Horizon), “Return Of The Pistoleros” is a full-on dub-quaking anthem extravaganza built for big fields and summer sound systems. Led by internationally renowned DJ and legendary party-starter Barry Ashworth, the band currently comprises old and new Dub Pistols including Tim Hutton who has co-written for Groove Armada, Ian Brown, and the new Prodigy album.

Over an 18-year career the Dub Pistols have worked with heroes like The Specials, Horace Andy, Madness, and Gregory Isaacs. They’ve burned through different members and hundreds of thousands of pounds of assorted capers and hedonism. It should have been a recipe for oblivion, but the band that started out in the mid-90s with Barry deejaying while musicians jammed over the top has metamorphosed into a mighty reggaematic-bass-driven live machine. A super-tight festival regular that keeps winning over new fans at Glastonbury, Bestival, Beat-Herder, and across Europe. Catch them live this Spring.
