As part of their 40th anniversary celebrations, Britain’s world-famous reggae band UB40 will release their first new studio album in five years in September 2018. It will see them returning to Northampton as part of an extensive UK tour in 2019.
Titled For The Many, the new album will be the Birmingham reggae veterans’ nineteenth studio album, featuring UB40 founder members Robin Campbell (co-vocals/Guitar), Brian Travers (saxophone/keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Earl Falconer (bass/keyboards/vocals) and Norman Hassan (percussion/vocals), and long-time members Duncan Campbell (vocals), Martin Meredith (saxophone), Laurence Parry (trumpet) and Tony Mullings (keyboards).
UB40 formed in 1978, naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, before releasing their debut album Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band.
It was the start of a career that has since seen UB40 have forty UK Top 40 hit singles and – with sales of over 100 million records – seen their albums reside in the UK’s Top 75 album chart for a combined period of eleven years, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time.
UB40 will showcase songs from For The Many alongside many of their seventeen UK Top 10 hit singles, including Kingston Town, Food For Thought, One In Ten, I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, Don’t Break My Heart, Sing Our Own Song and, of course, Red, Red Wine, as well as other fan favourites.
