2013 was a big year for Iration with the release of their new record Automatic and a nation wide tour with Through the Roots and Fortunate Youth. In 2014 Iration is coming around again this time with Natty Vibes and The Movement.
Iration released Automatic this past July, it debuted at #75 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #17 on the Billboard Independent Album chart, and #1 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart. Three years since their last album, Iration was long overdue for their third LP. The album also includes a collaboration with Cage the Elephant’s guitarist Lincoln Parish who brought even more talent to the floor and can be heard on several of the tracks.
After a summer tour and dates around the west coast this fall, the Isla Vista alternative reggae group has announced a winter tour in continued support of the new record. The band kicks off in Ventura, California before ultimately heading east for a total of 35 dates spread from the end of January through the first week in March. Touring the nation this winter in support of Iration is Natty Vibes and The Movement.
After playing as a band for 15 years, now with the help of Polynesian Underground management, Natty Vibes is touring stronger than ever. Supporting their deep discography, the band has reintroduced themselves into the modern Reggae-Rock scene as a touring force, constantly gaining new fans all over the US with their spirited live performance.
The Movement, signing with Rootfire Management this fall has been once again building steam on the road. Playing a run of shows through California with The Green and a run through the Southeast with Natty Vibes and Fear Nuttin Band, The Movement is ready for their first big national tour since the band reformed as a trio and released their new record Side By Side this past summer.
All three band listed on the bill for this tour each perform a unique style of Reggae-Rock and each play a powerful live set. For more on these bands, their music and details about the tour, check out the information below…
