Shabaka & the Ancestors prep new album, announce 2020 US tour
UK jazz great Shabaka Hutchings has been busy with both Sons of Kemet and The Comet Is Coming lately (the latter of which released a new album and mini LP this year), and now he's set to return to Shabaka & the Ancestors next year. They have a new album due in early 2020 via Impulse! (most details TBA), and they just announced a US tour surrounding their appearances at the Treefort and Big Ears festivals. They're also promising more dates to come.
The currently announced dates include a NYC show on March 30 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on sale Friday (12/13) at 10 AM.
