Ashes of Babylon New Release

Ashes of Babylon is a unique roots reggae group originally hailing from Lake Charles, Louisiana and now based out of Austin, Texas. On July 2nd, 2011 they will be releasing their sophomore album titled Day to Day Living. Come check out the details of their release & upcoming shows

They acquired a passion for reggae and an affinity for the culture from the sun-soaked shores of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Their first album, “Revolutionary Roots,” was released in November of 2008. The feeling of the album was envisioned to give an authentic picture of the group’s live show and is now available for purchase on both iTunes and CD Baby.

Boasting four songwriters inside a 8 piece group complete with full horn section accompanied by 3-part harmonies with bubbly keys, their sound includes unique perspectives on life and music. The same can be expected with their new release Day to Day Living that was Produced by Ashes of Babylon, Mixed by Dave Percefull at Yellow Dog Studios & Mastered by Derek Taylor at Milo Studios.

Here’s what Ashes of Babylon told The Pier about their new release:
“Day to Day Living is really about just that, getting through daily life. Everyone has troubles and disappointments.. everyone has achievements and gain. It’s all about waking up every morning and being ready for whatever life has to throw at you. A lot of the songs on the record share a similar theme and explore those types of situations..Which is why we thought it would work great as a title track.”

You’ll find that their live shows keep fresh by their members’ abilities to change instruments and revise their own compositions on the fly.
