The Kubricks return in 2017 with their new album, 'The Heist'
Produced by Toby Davies (Gentleman’s Dub Club, Maverick Sabre), ‘The Heist’ features 12 new tunes including ‘Hold Us Down’ - featuring reggae legend, Horseman, 'Better Of Me’, which includes the immense Sharlene Hector on vocals, and lead track, 'Down With The Dogs'.
As well as working on the new songs, The Kubricks spent 2016 performing to huge festival crowds, and have in the past supported UB40, Bad Manners, The Skints and The Toasters amongst others.
Over the last four years, the band has played to tens of thousands with slots at Wickerman Festival, Godiva, Brentwood Festival, Brownstock, and The London International Ska Festival, to support their debut release, ‘Wasters & Wannabes’.
Produced by Andrew Tulloch (The Charlatans, Madness) and released independently on Skallywag Records, 'Wasters & Wannabes' started to gain traction in 2014 with support from BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing, and BBC 6Music, after Huey Morgan featured the band's single, 'Self-Help Wannabe’ before Tom Robinson chose new track 'Rave With the Rebel' (July 2015) for his show, leading Horace Panter (The Specials) to champion the band, claiming, "I can hear Madness, The Ruts, Squeeze and The Clash in there…"
With 'The Heist', The Kubricks have overhauled their traditional ska sound, adding new elements such as percussion, samples and programming across 12 new compositions that combine the energy of the live band in a new studio setting.
