English Beat Hits The Road to Promote Upcoming Album Here We Go Love

The Beat at The Belly Up San DiegoDave Wakeling has been keeping the flame alive a long time now stateside with his version of the iconic UK band The English Beat. Last year he got a PledgeMusic project funded for a brand new album of all new material Here We Go Love and now he’s launched a 2 month tour to bring his dance-making sound to the masses around the US.

The national tour started two weeks ago and winds it’s way across damn near most of the 50 states! If you haven’t taken the chance to catch the band live I think now would be a great time to correct that. They are amazing live with a group of young and older cats laying down the Ska, Reggae and 80’s hits that only they could play. It’s surely makes you want to get up and dance.

The new album was recorded here in Los Angeles and you can still pre-order the full album at the PledgeMusic page. $10 gets you a digital download, $15 for the CD and $20 for the vinyl. You can even order special limited signed editions, t-shirts and more. Hell you could even TOUR with the band if you wanted to really dive in. After hearing some of the new tracks recently I’d say it’s going to be a fine release. You can hear some samples on there as well.

So get on your dancing shoes and catch em when the band hits your town over the next two months. See all dates and ticket information at their website.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
