Native British band Massive Attack will be visiting London during their upcoming tour in early 2010. The February 2010 tour date is set to coincide with the release of the duo’s latest album, Heligoland, which follows closely on the heels of the 2009 EP, Splitting the Atom.
Comprised of DJs Robert Del Naja (3D) and Grant Marshall (Daddy G), Massive Attack is a staple of experimental music in Europe, boasting of collaborations with the likes of David Bowie, Madonna, and TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe during the course of their 22 year career. In brighter times, the well-known duo counted production whiz Andrew Vowles (Mushroom) amongst their ranks, but permanently parted ways with Vowles in 2009 due to disagreements about the future of the band’s sound.

From Bristol to the Big-Time
Massive Attack emerged from the Bristol music scene of the mid-1980s, where the members were previously involved in the band, The Wild Bunch. Not long after, Marshall, Del Naja, and Vowles formed their own act with an eclectic mix of electronic, hip hop, soul, punk, and house influences, leading to a recording contract with Circa Records in 1990.
