Black Ark Vampires has become a staple closing tune on Lee “Scratch” Perry & Subatomic Sound System USA tours since the 7″ exclusive release in 2014, balancing the murky spiritual vibes of Perry’s Black Ark era recordings with Subatomic’s 21st century sound system bass weight and Brooklyn attitude.

This 3 song digital EP features all new vocal, dub, and roots rockers mixes, with extra sub bass pressure and all new percussion by Subatomic’s Larry McDonald, legendary Jamaican percussionist and veteran of Scratch’s 1970s Black Ark studio recording sessions, who gives a brutal performance on lead triangle.
