Following the success of their critically acclaimed album Black To The Future, Mercury-nominated quartet Sons of Kemet have announced new dates across the UK and Europe for the 2021/22 Black To The Future Tour. The performances include what will be their biggest headline show to date at London’s Roundhouse in February 2022.


This summer’s return to festival stages, which included electrifying sets at London’s All Points East, and Latitude Festival, further cemented the band’s status as one of the most exciting live acts in the UK and anticipation is high for their first headline tour since 2018. Shabaka Hutchings says “We are very excited to be bringing our music to live audiences across Europe after this pause”.


With special guests such as grime emcees D Double E and Kojey Radical and UK poet Joshua Idehen amongst others, Black To The Future is a bigger affair than previous Sons of Kemet records. The dynamic album begins and ends with powerful lyrical and musical statements of rage and frustration, expressed outwardly in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the subsequent BLM protests. The album flows inwards from the start and finish to deeper, inner journeys – looking to forgotten cosmologies and searching for new ways of existing.
