One of Reggae music’s legendary and best selling acts returns with their first studio album since 1997. Following in the outspoken, politically charged manner of their past releases such as True Democracy (1982), Earth Crisis (1984) and the Grammy Award winning Babylon The Bandit (1985), African Holocaust marks the return of one of the most conscious and important voices in music. This album maintains the original line-up of David Hinds, Selwyn Brown, and Steve Nisbett. Live on stage, the band comprises nine members, and they will undertake extensive touring on behalf of this release. 

"African Holocaust encompasses all dimensions of the plight of the black Diaspora ranging from slavery right up to this present time of physical and psychological genocide."
- David Hinds (Steel Pulse)
