Every Sunday we update our MP3 Leak of the Week on the homepage with a FREE new song that runs from Sunday to Saturday. This week we have a free song from International Farmers with the fresh new track King of Defeat. Originally released on Christmas day, King of Defeat is the first single from their 2nd album Stories You Rewind thats due out in 2011. Possibly a March/April release…
International Farmers Bio/Background:
International Farmers is a persistent bunch. Anchored by Preston Nelson on drums (son of longtime Ben Harper bassist, Juan Nelson), the band interweaves a highly danceable form of modern reggae. The band was originally formed by childhood friends Daniel Primavera (guitar) and Jeremy Odom (bass). Their deep passion for reggae, hip hop, and punk came together in Atlanta, GA around the summer of 2000. Along the way musicians were added: the powerful and soulful Lara Beers on vocals, the funky and playful Jamie Bullock on keys, and the jazz master Brian Landau on saxophone.
Nine years later, the now six piece International Farmers is preparing the release of their 2nd full length album. Focused, precise, and full of harmonies the album promises to extend the bands’ large and in charge reggae attitude to a global audience.
When The Pier asked singer Daniel Primavera what to expect from the new album, this is what he said:
The new record is very much to the point. I can’t stop pressing repeat while listening to the early mixes. That’s always a fantastic sign!
Get ready for a fresh reggae sound in a new album from International Farmers….
