The Bumpin’ Uglies are back at it again, this time with Georgia born Ruckus Brown at their side. They are launching a new tour, 16 shows, that will run down the east coast, from Maryland to Florida and everywhere in between.
Their most recent production was their debut LP titled “Free Candy,” which was released in June of this past year. You can download 3 songs off that release for FREE inside our MP3 Massive Section by clicking HERE. Since then, front man Brandon Hardesty has said they have been doing a lot of writing and they are quite excited to see what their out of town fans think of their new material.
“White Boy Reggae,” which features tour mate Ruckus Brown, is a sample of their recent progress and points out many of the stereotypes associated with modern reggae groups. It is a chance for the listener to see things from the band’s perspective, so if you have not already, give it a listen!
The tour starts in a few days on January 9th and finishes on the 27th so be sure not to miss it. Their reggae, ska, and rock fusion is a refreshing break from the ordinary, and with new music on the way, there is even more to get excited about. For those that have not already jumped on the Bumpin’ Uglies bandwagon already, do so soon before the tour is over.
