Dub War Share Video For Cover Of Max Romeo & The Upsetters‘ “War Inna Babylon” Featuring Ranking Roger

Dub War, the project featuring Skindred‘s Benji Webbe, have shared an animated video for their cover of Max Romeo & The Upsetters‘ “War Inna Babylon.“ This track features the late Ranking Roger (The Beat) and it will appear on the band’s new album “Westgate Under Fire,“ which is set to be released on August 5. Webbe commented:

“The original song by Max Romeo was in my family record collection as far back as I can remember. When meeting Ranking Roger, we discussed how punk rock and dub reggae had a massive influence on our lives. This song for us both was a massive hit, and we spoke about doing a collaboration and reviving the original with that Clash / The Ruts British punk rock energy to it. Sadly, not long after we got to record the song with Roger, he passed away. But this song is one that we are very proud of, and we didn’t just do a cover – we really made this unique cover of War Inna Babylon our own.”
