The Black Seeds To Play Manning House
In September of this year New Zealand’s The Black Seeds released their highly anticipated sixth studio album Fabric. The album reached #3 on the US Billboard Reggae Charts, #3 on the ARIA Jazz & Blues Charts and #4 on New Zealand’s Album Charts – drawing acclaim from critics and fans around the globe.
The South Pacific reggae-soul legends have shared the length and breadth of their luscious and diverse new album – including the anthemic summer tune ‘Better Days’, the dance heavy ‘Freakin’ and their brand new track “Back To You” with sold-out appearances across their homeland over the past month.
While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band nearly two decades ago, The Black Seeds’ sound casts a wide net, layering funk, soul, Afrobeat, and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundations. Guitarist/vocalist Barnaby Weir describes their sound as “contemporary groove music with influences from soul and funk and reggae rhythms.”
Australian audiences get the chance to offer another warm welcome to the band when they return for a series of shows in November, taking in The Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Brunswick Heads, Sydney, Long Jetty and Melbourne before the final shows in Margaret River and Fremantle. With long, hot Summer nights just around the corner, there’s no better way to relax into the groove than with the sweet soul filled reggae stylings of The Black Seeds.
