WithGuitars favourites The Selecter announce a tasty new Album entitled ‘String Theory’ which will be backed with a hefty UK Tour.
Pop/ska/2-tone legends The Selecter have announced details of a major UK tour in March 2013. Comprising 20-dates, the tour will see the band perform across the length and breadth of the UK, from Exeter to Glasgow.
In November 2012, The Selecter went international with their first tour of Australia. Fresh from their antipodean exploits, their 20-date UK Tour in March 2013 promises to consolidate their hard work & fresh-thinking, connecting their past, present and future, before they head off to America the following month for a tour and major festival appearance.
The tour is in support of the release of The Selecter’s forthcoming studio album, ‘String Theory. String Theory is a collection of 10 new songs, all of which connect with the band’s past, while saying something about today.
Recording on String Theory began immediately in the aftermath of The Selecter’s sell-out 2012 ‘Made In Britain Tour’, with Producer/engineer Neil Pyzer once again at the helm. Many of the new songs beg to be played live and will get an outing on the forthcoming tour, alongside all the hits from their classic back catalogue.
String Theory is due for release in February 2013 on Vocaphone Records. It will be available via iTunes, Amazon & Cd Baby.com, but most importantly at their shows, where lead singers Pauline Black and Gaps Hendrickson are always proud to get out in the foyer, both before and after every show, to meet their fans.
The Selecter are both tied to and very proud of their past, to the acknowledgement of 2-tone and all that it meant to their fans, but they continue to look forward into an unknown future, safe in the knowledge that a common thread runs through their work, which will never be severed. How long is a piece of string? As far as The Selecter needs to carry on the discussion about our changing world in which racism and sexism should have no place
