Asian Dub Foundation – Tripod, Dublin

Live sensations ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION are set to return to Dublin for a full live show at TRIPOD on Friday 19th February.

Britain’s most politically conscious band will be debuting brand new material from a new album soon to be recorded, as well as playing all the greats from classic releases such as Rafi’s Revenge, Community Music, and 2008’s Punkara, their first album with former King Prawn singer Al Rumjen on lead vocals.

ADF continue as always to use their music as a force in the fight against racism and injustice, challenging the political status quo through means that have often seen them labeled as the modern day equivalent of bands like the Sex Pistols or The Clash.

Recent activities include their collaboration with Indigenous Resistance on a track highlighting the land rights struggle of the people in Atenco, Mexico; their BEATIN’ BACK THE BNP tour in the UK last year; and guitarist Steve Shavale’s ‘Music of Resistance’ documentary series for Al Jazeera, exploring peoples who use music as a political force around the world.
