By PopMatters Staff

The 12-piece Brooklyn-based Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas is finally back with a new album, their first since 2007’s Security. They have been busy in the meantime with several members working on the hit musical FELA!. For this go-around, the band lured back Gabe Roth as producer, who worked with them on their first three albums. Antibalas will release on 7 August and will be accompanied by a world tour. Below you can sample a tune from the upcoming record.
