Dub Pistols have spent the past 15 years winning over audiences globally with their infectious blend of ska, dub, hip-hop, DnB, electronic and punk. Their fifth studio album, Worshipping The Dollar, is a collection of diverse tracks that showcases the band’s vast influences while remaining incessantly catchy throughout. Released today on Sunday Best Recordings, Worshipping The Dollar is now available via iTunes and all other digital retailers.
Album track “Countermeasure” shines with a hip hop-infused melody that begs you to move from beginning to end. For a taste of one of the many styles Dub Pistols tap into on the new record. The album also features the shimmering, horn-driven single “Alive,” and the band called on fans to participate in the creation of the track’s accompanying music video!

Worshipping The Dollar sees guests like UK hip hop legend Rodney P., rising Barbados reggae act Red Star Lion, Ashley Slater (Kitten & The Hip) and Bunna join Barry Ashworth and his motley crew. The album marks a return to lyrical themes explored on earlier albums, with deeper, more conscious lyrics and what Ashworth describes as “a lot of food for thought.” Having played sold-out shows across Europe, Dub Pistols were voted Best Live Act by DJ Mag last year, and are currently in the midst of a string of UK summer festival dates.
