The Aggrolites are proud to reveal their first live album, Unleashed Live Vol. 1. along with their 5 week North America tour that starts Sept 9th & wraps up October 22nd.. We got the info, lets see what’s in store for The Aggrolites this fall…
With five previous studio releases under their belt, including recently released Rugged Road, the next logical move for the band was a compilation of their favorite songs recorded live from recent shows at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA and The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Unleashed Live Vol. 1 features songs from all four previous studio releases plus a version of The Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Banana” by the legendary reggae artist, Roy Ellis. Release date will be announced sometime this fall and available digitally worldwide and in select retail outlets nationwide.
Fresh” off the entire 44–date Vans Warped Tour, The Aggrolites are yet again headlining a tour around the country, this time in support of their live release. Joining them will be the theatrical Japanese punk rock group, Peelander-Z and the innovative psychedelic reggae quartet, Roots of Creation. Based in NYC, Peelander-Z dynamic live show has gathered attention from worldwide media outlets with a feature by Spin Magazine from their 2011 SXSW performance. Hailing from the northeast, Roots of Creation have combined the laidback grooves of Sublime with the interpretive musicianship of Phish and STS9.
The Pier caught up w/Keyboardist Roger Rivas to get some insight on the upcoming tour!
The Pier What can fans expect from this upcoming fall tour?
Roger: They can expect the same high energy funkiness! We just got done with The Vans Warped tour and are very much looking forward to getting back to the clubs and venues where we really put on an AGGRO experience. The band has never been as tight as we are now! We are excited to take this show on the road once again and make em all shake! Our Funky Reggae sound has just become defined even more with the addition of some much need new elements. Come check it out, twist and shout and have a drink with us!
The Pier: What new songs is Aggrolites looking forward to playing live?
Roger: We are beefing up our arsenal of Aggro Gems. Along with the new jams like “Trial & Error” & ‘”Complicated Girl”, we are heading back to the vault and playing some of these songs that we always get asked to play but have not for some reason. Come get at us before the set with requests..haha. You might alter our setlist just a little. If you are a NEW Aggro fan or a classic follower we will not disappoint. Big party in store for the whole room!
