February 7th
(Bedouin Soundclash / MRG Vancouver Island)

After a seven year hiatus, they’re back and better than ever!

That’s right, reggae-rock band Bedouin Soundclash is returning to Victoria’s Capital Ballroom in February – and even better? We’re giving away a pair of tickets so you can see them for yourself!

Named after Israeli dub artist/producer Badawi’s 1996 release of the same name, Bedouin Soundclash formed nearly two decades ago.

Their sophomore release Sounding a Mosaic in 2004 featured the hit single, “When the Night Feels My Song” and was produced by legendary punk-hardcore royalty Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains. The album also earned Bedouin Soundclash their first JUNO Award in 2006 for Canada’s ‘Best New Group.’

The band has shared the stage with the likes of The Roots, No Doubt, Ben Harper, Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Damian Marley, Gogol Bordello and Thievery Corporation, among others in their long history.

Bedouin Soundclash has now re-merged and released their fifth studio album and first in 9 years, titled MASS – it was recorded in two different communities, in New Orleans with Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and in Vancouver at the St. James Church with the children of the St. James Music Academy.

The band kicks off their MASS tour in our very own Victoria on February 7th, before heading across Canada and then to the United Kingdom for a series of concerts in 2020.

Tickets to the Victoria show are still available and you can purchase the online, but grab these quick as they won’t last long!
