The Black Seeds long awaited new album has gone straight to the top of the New Zealand album charts - the first New Zealand band to achieve the number one spot so far this year.
Their fifth studio album, ‘Dust And Dirt’ is the bands first release to top the charts since the multi-platinum-selling ‘Into The Dojo’.
The chart placing tops off a successful week for the band with ‘Dust And Dirt’ also garnering praise overseas, reaching #1 on Germany’s iTunes reggae charts, and #2 on the iTunes reggae charts in the U.S.
Self recorded and produced in their Wellington studio, the album introduces new sounds and styles not heard on previous releases whilst retaining the trademark sound that the band is known for.
Currently in the middle of tours of the U.S and Europe, The Black Seeds return home in May to perform 9 shows across the country.
The band would like to pass on their sincere thanks to everyone that has helped with and supported the album.
