New album from ANTIBALAS out on Daptone Records August 7th!

Antibalas is back and pleased to announce the release of their fifth full-length album out on Daptone Records August 7th, 2012!

Last November, on the heels of the hit musical FELA!, Antibalas piled into two rooms at Daptone’s House of Soul Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn to cut an explosive new set of afrobeat classics.  Reunited with former member and producer Gabe Roth, who was at the helm for their first three full-lengths, the band will release their first album in five years, self-titled, on August 7, on the one-and-only Daptone Records. Go to for an exclusive first listen to "Sare Kon Kon (redux)," the last track from the upcoming album, and stay tuned for more news and updates!


Heavy music since 1998.
