Massive Attack

Story by Jack Foley

MASSIVE Attack are to play a special benefit show in aid of the Hoping Foundation at Brixton Academy on February 8.

The gig – one of two nights the band is playing at the London venue – will be looking to support Palestinian children living in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.

Massive Attack are a successful and critically acclaimed band from Bristol, England. They have released eight albums – four full studio albums, two movie soundtracks, one remix album, and a greatest hits collection.

Their music is electronic and combines elements of jazz, hip hop, rock, and classical into music that is often named as trip-hop and other genres; lately darker, subtler forms of electronic music have been dominant influences.

Massive Attack are constant collaborators and have worked with a diverse mix of artists, from Sinéad O’Connor to reggae star Horace Andy to Madonna and they did a remix for Qawwali master, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Their work has also been used in many feature films and televisions shows, including The Matrix, 24, The West Wing, and House.

They also now own a members-only club, Nocturne, located in their hometown of Bristol.
