  • John Brown’s Body – “Chased By Lions”

    “Chased By Lions” Background:
    Here’s what JBB’s drummer Tommy Benedetti had to say about the new song…

    “We have been looking forward to releasing an EP like this for years. Dub music is an integral part of JBB’s sound and inspiration. “Chased By Lions” features some killer guitar work from Mike Keenan, and a classic falsetto vocal splash by frontman Elliot Martin. Our engineer and producer Craig Welsch (10 Ft. Ganja Plant) was the key to making what started as a basic drum and bass idea into a fully-realized song. His guidance in the studio and behind the console was crucial in making JBB In Dub what it is. Enjoy.”
    Tommy Benedetti

    John Brown’s Body Bio/Background:
    John Brown’s Body’s “Future Roots” uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum and bass, and electro to create a sound both timeless and forward. Described by LA2DAY as “delivering the most forward-thinking reggae music in the world today” the 8-piece band’s killer live show has super heavy rhythms, a three piece horn section, air tight drum and bass and “the most gorgeous melodies in all of modern reggae music” [All Music Guide], all backed by a dubbed-out sound engineer. However it’s defined, it’s got people buzzing about this progressive band from Boston and Ithaca, NY.
