Ska Fans: The Selecter Premiere ‘Frontline’ Music Video; New Album ‘Daylight’ Coming in October

The Selecter, the legendary English 2-Tone ska band fronted by Pauline Black and Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson, will return on October 6 with a new studio album, Daylight. The news was announced recently, and a music video was premiered for a song called “Frontline.”

The song’s lyrics concern consumerism, the Internet and our collective consciousness as a culture – watch the video below:

Pre-orders for Daylight are up now at the band’s official site.

The Selecter will hit the road for much of the next few months, as special guests on Rancid and Dropkick Murphys’ From Boston to Berkeley co-headlining tour and alongside the Beat and Midnight Oil. Their full slate of dates:
