If you haven't checked it yet, british trip hop forefathers Massive Attack's 5th album, Heligoland, hit shelves a few weeks ago. It's a dark listening experience for certain, with a cast of guest vocalists providing the voice to the group's gloom induced futuristic beats. As if that wasn't enough though, the band just announced a limited run of tour dates here in the States in support of the album. While not a lot to pick from, it's the first time in four years that you'll be able to see them spin their stuff live on stage. Music and dates below for your pleasure.
