DUBBER SIDE OF THE MOON UPDATE
"We've been so busy lately between various tours, recording and multiple record releases, that we did not get to mention that Dubber Side of the Moon debuted on the Billboard reggae chart at number 2 (behind Damian Marley and Nas). The record, which put the original Dub Side tracks into the hands of a cadre of great producers, has had a great reception from fans and critics. A few choice quotes:

"Dubber Side is a welcome revisit, with bass-heavy remixes and versions from the likes of Adrian Sherwood and Groove Corporation that quite frankly manage to top the originals. Essential." – Clash (UK)

"...actually better than the original..." – Cyclic Defrost (Australia)

"...dubbed out remixes refresh the whole concept while demonstrating, like the originals, the universality of great music." – Crack Magazine (UK)

"This album redefines the genre by mixing the traditional elements with futuristic vision." - The Pier

"This album has it all – great songwriting (obviously), great arrangements and a fresh, interesting take on a classic album." – Delusions of Adequacy

"...a slo-mo head-spinner." - Philadelphia Daily News

Check out the record now and pick it up at iTunes, Amazon, your local store or our webstore. Look for more news on 2011 touring for Easy Star All-Stars and their upcoming releases in the next month or two. " More info »

'SPECIALS' IS OUT AND SHOULD NOT BE MISSED
"If you were lucky enough to have caught the Black Seeds when they played live across North America this past July, you know what we mean when we say this is one of the most exciting reggae/soul groups on the planet. Easy Star is proud to continue their association with the Black Seeds, with the release of 'SPECIALS', the band's 14-track, digital only release of remixes, dubs, b-sides and acoustic versions from SOLID GROUND. You can buy it at iTunes or at Amazon now. Rumor is that the band is back in New Zealand plotting their return to our shores in 2011, as well as working on a new album. " More info »

ESA/ CAS BIRMINGHAM UK SHOW RESCHEDULED
"TO OUR BIRMINGHAM fans and ticket holders for tonight's show at HARE AND HOUND: We are very sad to say that last night half of our band (Elenna, Shelton, Buford, Menny and Matt) missed their flight from New York (due to a traffic accident near the airport). Because of this we have to reschedule the show for MONDAY 25th OCTOBER. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but tonight's performance would be impossible without half of our band. All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled performance and full refunds will be made to anyone who is unable to make this date. Please contact the HARE AND HOUND for refunds or any other questions regarding our show on Monday. We REALLY hope you will all be able to make our show on Monday and we promise to make it a special one! " More info »
