February 23, 2011TWO EASY STAR ALBUMS NOMINATED FOR AWARDS
"DUBBER SIDE OF THE MOON, by the Easy Star All-Stars, and THE PRESTER JOHN SESSIONS, by Tommy T, were both nominated in the Best Dub Album of the Year category in the 2010 Web Reggae Awards in France. After fan voting, DUBBER SIDE came in third in the category, losing out to someone Easy Star fans know well: Canada's Dubmatix. Check out the rest of the results here, though you will need to read French. " More info »
February 02, 2011FIRST LIGHT ALBUM AND TOUR COMING IN APRIL
"On April 5th, The Easy Star All-Stars will release FIRST LIGHT, their first full-length album of original songs, which will coincide with the First Light Tour. Look for much more detail on the album itself to come in the next few weeks, including info on special pre-orders for the album.
The band worked on the album over the past six months in between the extensive touring schedule. The All-Stars are very excited to put out an album that features original songwriting and contributions by every member of the collective group. Fans at Jam Cruise and the Pai Festival in Thailand last month were treated to live sneak peeks of tracks from the album including "Don't Stop The Music," "Paid My Dues" and the title song, "First Light." The band can't wait to play more tracks from the album on the upcoming tour.
The First Light Tour officially begins March 31 in Baltimore (with one early show at Mt. Snow in Vermont a few days before as well). The tour runs the entire length of the Atlantic Coast, from Canada to Florida and back. The first 10 shows features support from the biggest up-and-coming band in reggae today, Hawaii's The Green, as well as from Easy Star artist Cas Haley, who just released his latest album, CONNECTION, last Fall.
After those first dates, Cas Haley will support all of the remaining shows, which makes sense considering he also is a guest artist on FIRST LIGHT, singing the song "Unbelievable." This leg of the tour runs through April 26 in Burlington, VT, with more shows to be added soon. One highlight comes April 20 in New York when the All-Stars will co-headline a show at the Highline Ballroom with label mates John Brown's Body. " More info »
