The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential and important British bands of all time, have unveiled details of Encore, their first new album in 37 years. Hailing from the grim industrial midlands of England, and dressed in pork-pie hats, mohair suits, Ben Sherman shirts and Doc Martens, they hit the UK music scene hard.In the UK their debut single Gangsters went to #6 and every subsequent single was a Top 10, including two further #1s. In April 1980 they played an electrifying version of Gangsters on Saturday Night Live a performance thats frequently name checked as one of the shows most memorable music bookings.In the current turbulent climate, 38 years later, Encore picks up almost exactly, in style and in substance, where Ghost Town left off, addressing serious issues head on. The album includes a version of The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum originally a hit for Terry and Lynvals post-Specials band Fun Boy Three in 1982 as well as a powerful spoken word track The Ten Commandments featuring British anti-racism activist Saffiyah Khan.
