March 5, 2013 SteelPulse.com relaunched to help fans learn more about us, the music, and our focus on love and justice.
In 1978, race relations in Britain were in crisis. The National Front was gathering power and immigrants lived in fear of violence.
But that year also saw the birth of a campaign - Rock Against Racism (RAR) - aimed at halting the tide of hatred with music - a grassroots movement culminating in a march across London and an open-air concert in the East End. The campaign involved groups like TheClash, Steel Pulse, Buzzcocks, X-Ray Spex, The Ruts, and others, staging concerts with an anti-racist theme, in order to discourage young people from embracing racist views.
The cancelled shows will be rescheduled and announced as soon as possible and the band hope to perform at the One Love Festival in the future. Ticket holders should contact the outlet that they purchased their tickets from.
Well wishers are encouraged to post messages to the band’s facebook page.
Meanwhile the band hope to resume touring, finishing their documentary, Dreadtown and completing their next album as soon as possible.
Our music is for the upliftment of all people on Jah planet. We must work together for a better tomorrow, to live in I-nity with all creation."
- David "Dread" Hinds
