Release Athens is very happy to welcome Massive Attack on Sunday, July 3rd at Plateia Nerou. One of the most important and beloved bands of the last few decades, returns to Athens with the biggest live show of their career.
More names to be announced soon.
Massive Attack formed at Bristol in 1988, after the DJ collective The Wild Bunch ceased its operation in the mid-80s. With the valuable encouragement and assistance of Neneh Cherry, the group showed from the get-go a new approach to pop music, creating a unique and personal style, still unclassified, until the music journalists coined the term trip hop.
Renowned for their seamless integration of a wide range of genres, from post punk to dub/reggae to dance music, Massive Attack not only produced an ahead-of-its-time irresistible blend but eventually changed the contemporary music forever.
Their seminal debut LP, “Blue Lines” was heralded as an instant classic, while the gorgeous “Protection” (1994) and the masterpiece “Mezzanine” (1998), cemented their status as one of the premier groups of its era. Their impressive string of releases continued with “100th Window” (2003), “Heligoland” (2010) and a series of remixes, soundtracks and EPs of the highest quality, while at the same time they collaborated with an impressive list of important musicians like Liz Frazer, Tracey Thorn, Damon Albarn, Horace Andy, Hope Sandoval and Young Fathers among many others.
Robert “3D” Del Naja, Grant “Daddy G” Marshall and the great singers of the band, together with an unmatched list of modern classics – “Safe from Harm”, “Unfinished Sympathy”, “Angel”, “Teardrop”, “Protection”, “Karmacoma” etc.- guarantee us one the best concerts of this years’ edition of Release Athens.
