We're roughly halfway through Massive Attack's 2016 tour, which has just finished its UK leg before hitting the rest of Europe, so its about time for a news update post covering all that's been going on in the last couple of weeks.

Well, we're coming to the end of another year once again, and when speaking about Massive Attack in 2014, besides the tour this Summer there hasn't been an awful lot from the band in terms of new music. Sure we had the Battle Box 003 remix in March but since then things have been decidedly quiet, with Massive Attack presumably hard at work on the mooted LP6.
Just when I started thinking that 3D's Battle Box project had quietly been abandoned since it's inaugural 12" single last November, he's just gone a spun the new track from it on us, in what promises to be an ongoing series of new material.
If your reading this, then there's good chance you've heard the news that 3D is to release an art book (a visual companion, if you will) on the history of Massive Attack. I think it's an exciting prospect for many fans, since he's teased it quite often in interviews in the least few years, and to many fans (myself included), the band's visual identity has made almost as big an impression as their music down through the years.
Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Robert Del Naja (who should need no introduction on here) are jointly scoring the soundtrack to an upcoming film documentary entitled "The UK Gold". The documentary is getting its world premiere at London's Troxy Theatre on the 25th June.
While alot of fans (including myself) eagerly await the upcoming Massive Attack V Adam Curtis shows this summer, in the interim anyone in London this May or June may want to take note of a special one-off exhibit by Massive Attack's 3D that will be taking place at the Lazarides art gallery.
