Manchester heroes Sonic Boom Six have just unveiled a brand new video for ‘No Man, No Right’. The track is the first official single from upcoming The F-Bomb. The single is getting released on 30th October and will also feature new song ‘Do What You Wanna Do’ with remix from Rory C of Enter Shikari and BL∆X. The album is set for early 2016 and is produced by Dan Weller (responsible for Enter Shikari’s A Flash Flood Of Colour and The Mindsweep, and albums by Young Guns, Rise To Remain and many more), and mixed by Adam Noble.
Sonic Boom Six deliver yet another celeverly composed upbeat fusion of ska, punk, hip-hop, and dub, with positive vibes and serious message of female empowerment. Directed by Chloë Wicks and shot at The MacBeth, Hoxton, the video attacks typical macho concert experience and stereotypical male behaviour, with the ladies at the gig kicking the band members of the stage and to rock on along singer Laila Khan. The guys then experience the usual harassment girls have to patiently sit through at parties.
The F-Bomb will be Sonic Boom Six’s fifth studio album and first in four years after last critically acclaimed Sonic Boom Six (2012) saw the band shift towards more electronic approach to traditional ska-punk. The band’s latest EP Operation Boombox surpassed its PledgeMusic goal and is available to order. It features tracks that some of you might have already heard at SB6’s live shows and delivers another dose of socialy aware and perfectly blended and ska, reggae, electronica and punk.
