The Black Seeds bring Fabric Tour to NZ shores this September

Kiwi reggae band The Black Seeds will be bringing their 'Fabric Release Tour' to NZ shores this September.

Having just returned from a successful tour of Canada & the US, the 8-piece music group goes on tour in celebration of their upcoming album 'Fabric'. Kicking off in Raglan the band will be heading to Auckland, Mt Maunganui, Wanaka Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington.

Debuted recently is their brand new single 'Freakin' which is part of the album's nostalgic summery anthem 'Better Days'. The uplifting album opener ensures that "better days are coming, lonely nights are leaving", while tracks like 'The Weaver' remind us that love will conquer all pain.

After a couple of years touring and juggling festival slots, The Black Seeds focused their efforts throughout 2016 and 2017 on the recording of their new album. It wouldn't be a Black Seeds record without the warm affirmations of Weir and Weetman’s words heard from top to tail.

"The best reggae band in the world right now." – Rolling Stone Germany

"It's for the end of the week, end of the line, letting loose, shaking it off. It's a good dose of feel-good funk." - Barnaby Weir, The Black Seeds co-frontman

"Almost like the changing of the seasons, you can count on The Seeds to rock into your town and deliver an uplifting concoction of reggae, dub and funk with their own ingenious twist." – Otago Daily Times

Overall, there is a grand expansiveness that sets over the tracklist, allowing for each song to breathe and exist on its own showing The Black Seeds' limitless creative energy for what it is—always moving forward and progressing without compromising the soul of who they are.

Experience The Black Seeds' live performance and have a good dose of feel-good funk this September.
