Leading UK dance act Dreadzone have embarked on a huge Autumn/Winter tour. They are bringing the sounds of their critically-acclaimed album Eye On The Horizon, alongside classic hits such as Little Britain and Captain Dread to 27 towns and cities across the country. The Dreadzone story began back in the 1980s in West London with the fall out that came after the legendary Clash split. Mick Jones recruited drummer Greg Dread and bassist Leo Williams as the rhythm section of his new band, Big Audio Dynamite. When B.A.D went their separate ways, Greg and Leo formed Dreadzone and have never looked back. Alan McGee's Creation Records released Dreadzone's groundbreaking debut 360, which led to them supporting Oasis at their era-defining shows at Knebworth and Loch Lomond. Their follow-up, the seminal Second Light, brought Dreadzone well and truly into the limelight and received massive support from John Peel, who included the album in his top 10 favourite albums of all time, and six of it's tracks in his 1995 festive 50. It also spawned a top 20 hit Little Britain, which has since gone on to acquire cult status worldwide. After 15 years on the scene, six albums, hundreds of festival performances and thousands of gigs, Dreadzone are still going strong and receiving critical acclaim for their groundbreaking albums and live performances. Having remixed Dreadzone's most recent single Yeah Man, which received some serious airplay, including Pendulum dropping it as part of their Essential Mix on Radio One, two rising stars in the music scene She Is Danger and Engine-Earz are supporting Dreadzone on their tour.
