Academy Events presents STEEL PULSE
Friday 1 May London, O2 Forum Kentish Town *
20 November, 2019
In May 2019, UK reggae legends Steel Pulse released their first new studio album in 15 years, Mass Manipulation, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. The Guardian said of their 12th studio album “[David Hinds’] songwriting and Bob Marleyesque vocals have lost none of their plaintively galvanizing qualities as he addresses social justice…The 17 songs are delivered with sincerity, passion and infectious positivity.” They now bring their new show to the UK for the first time in several years and kick off at O2 Ritz Manchester on 30 April 2020 before going on to London, Birmingham, Bristol and Brighton before travelling on to Europe for more dates.
Mass Manipulation, reflects four decades committed to bettering mankind through music. Steel Pulse continues to be revolutionary in engaging controversial topics of racial injustice and human rights on a global scale. Their musical stance and conceptualisations are as potent and relevant today as they were at the beginning of their career. The album’s uniquely thematic approach provokes thought as it presses forward, toward humanities unification. A manipulation of our minds has been influenced by a New World Order currently dominating humankind. Steel Pulse reappears at a fated moment, armed with compassion, encouraging all people to reject false ideals, set higher goals, and demand more from themselves to further this unification.
