Brooklyn’s Afropopper Antibalas have their new self-titled album set to release 7 August via Daptone and it’s a work inspired by the ongoing financial crisis and the uprisings of protest that have accompanied these difficult times. Now they are previewing the new album with a video for “Dirty Money” and it’s the first scripted video they have ever produced. Meanwhile the band will head out on the road as of 10 August, visiting most major US markets as well as a number of college towns.
