So the end of another year and one which many would agree was not the best of years, we all know the reasons why. We spent a large part of this year making a new album and touring so the dread vibe just kept rolling. The autumn tour was such a blast with a load of special shows , it hard to pick the standouts but I have to mention a few memorable ones as usual; firstly big up everyone one who came to see us..your passion for the music brings an energy that drives us on.. so Bridport, Bristol, London, Leeds, Colchester- just a few of those who raised the energy up to another level.
As usual the biggest love and respect goes out to the almighty dread team who roll like thunder- Leo, Spee, Earl, Bazil ,Chris, Loki ,Simon and Thom .. also along the way Jonny Milton, all in the DMF office to keep everything running smoothly and make it all possible- David , Laura , Zac, Gill and Jon .Thanks and big love to the House of Dread and all the wonderful people who came to see us and all the great promoters and friends who put the shows on.
Next year sees the release of our 8th studio album Dread Times at the beginning of the year -17.2.17 , so we will be hitting the ground running with dates starting around the same time, some new tunes in the set and some other changes too, technology and a large back catalogue means we can interchange music from different eras of Dread.Some great new merch on the way as well . Finally to all those we loved and lost along the way this year, too many to mention ..Heres to 2017 being better than this year – Merry Christmas and Happy New year x Greg and the dreadz x
