Hot on the heels of their acclaimed 2016 album BOUNCE, The Beat featuring Ranking Roger release brand new album PUBLIC CONFIDENTIAL on Jan 25 2019 on DMF Records. Expected to delight 2-Tone fans, who endured a 30-year gap before BOUNCE between albums, PUBLIC CONFIDENTAL continues to showcase the band at their joyful skanking best with 10 brand new songs.  Produced by Mick Lister and Ranking Roger, PUBLIC CONFIDENTIAL will be available digitally and on CD, Black Heavyweight Vinyl, Blue Transparent Vinyl and Black/White Half & Half Vinyl with signed copies available to pre-order now. 

The band is very much as before but this time even more of a family affair with Roger’s daughter Saffren providing vocals as well as Beat stalwart and crowd pleaser Ranking Junior on toasting duties. Completing the line-up are Fuzz Townshend (drums), Chiko Hamilton (Sax), Andy Pearson (Bass), Andy Perriss (Gtr) and Bobby Bird (Gtr). The first single to be released from PUBLIC CONFIDENTIAL is MANIAC - a catchy, bass-led reggae ska tune pointing the finger at the mess of current politics.
