Massive Attack

Biography

Massive Attack are back. And right now, at a time when anodyne celebrity obsessions and endless Popstars juggernauts are monopolising the cultural landscape, we need Britain's most influential band more than ever. Massive Attack have consistently pushed the boundaries of both their own sound - twisting their soundsytem roots into the complex, insistent guitar layers of Mezzanine - and constantly surprised with their inspired collaborations and groundbreaking art direction. Even now, twelve years after they first inked a deal with Virgin to release the landmark Blue Lines, promising artists are still referred to as 'the new Massive Attack.' They've stamped their mark on British music, shaping and shifting dance music, pop, British hip hop, drum & bass and rock - and the creative whirlwind is about to be unleashed again.
