The Santa Barbara, CA based ensemble, Iration, dropped a new track “Fly with Me” back in May, and released another new single “Borderlines,” August 11. Pair that with a fall tour announcement alongside Fortunate Youth and Through the Roots, and there is plenty of reason for excitement.
Iration has been climbing up the ladder, cementing themselves into a position at the top of an evolving genre. From their invigorating live show, to their discography of full-length studio albums routinely chiming in at the top of Billboard and reggae-rock charts, Iration never ceases to push forward and reinvent themselves. After dropping an acoustic release as a follow-up to 2015’s Hotting Up, the band has been teasing social media posts of being hard at work in the studio, and have two tracks “Fly With Me” and “Borderlines” to show for it.
Well-known as golf enthusiasts with a pretty decent handicap to boot, Iration was also featured on Callaway Golf’s “Callaway Live” series a few months ago. Lead vocalist Micah Pueschel and Micah Brown briefly conducted an interview with a guitar (yes, an actual guitar, worth a few laughs) and the band was joined by LPGA star Michelle Wie during the segment as well – check out the full video below and see for yourself!
On the opposite spectrum from “Fly With Me,” the new single “Borderlines” feels more like an alternative-rock song than the traditional lighter, reggae-centric styles we grown accustomed to hearing from Iration. The song comes at an appropriate time, depicting conflict in a divided country and approaching the issue from a bigger picture of why it even exists in the first place.

Iration announced that they’ll be hitting the road in the Fall with support from Fortunate Youth and Through The Roots headlining their own “Intergalactic Tour!” The tour will kickoff in Lawrence, KS with dates from October 24 – November 17.
