Dreadzone will be returning to the town of Barnstaple on December 1st showcasing new tracks from their highly awaited forthcoming album. They will be treating you with new unheard material as well as all of the favourites from their back catalogue.
The core members Greg Dread, original bass master Leo Williams, the unmistakable MC Spee, legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16 alongside Chris Compton on guitar and Bazil on technology make up the current Dreadzone live line up.

Electro-dub pioneers Dreadzone formed in 1993 when ex-Big Audio Dynamite drummer Greg Roberts teamed up with Tim Bran, with the duo soon joined by bassist Leo Williams and keyboardist Dan Donovan, also formerly of Big Audio Dynamite, completing the group’s first line-up. A festival favourite, Dreadzone 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 seven Top 60 singles (including their Top 20 hit ‘Little Britain’) and are still going strong after 18 years.
Dreadzone released The Good, The Bad And The Dread - a compendium of their excellent musical story so far in 2011 and their ground-breaking 1995 album ‘Second Light’ was re-released in March 2012 by EMI as a two disc special edition featuring previously unreleased live concert material. The band is currently writing their eagerly awaited new studio album. As well as live favourites from their back catalogue the band will be showcasing new tracks at their shows this autumn.
