March 06, 2014DUB SIDE RE-RELEASE IN SEPTEMBER, TOUR IN SPRING
"In September 2014, Easy Star All-Stars we will release a special anniversary edition of the classic album, Dub Side Of The Moon, with new artwork, an in-depth liner note booklet and two bonus tracks, including a new version of the song “Breathe” featuring additional vocals by Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, Metric Man, and Ruff Scott of the Easy Star All-Stars.
The band also hits the road for the Dub Side Of The Moon Anniversary Tour performing the album live in its entirety alongside classic material from the band’s career including original songs and tracks from the other tribute albums. Select shows will also include new animated visuals that were debuted at live shows in November 2013.
The tour features a number of great pairings as well, including five co-headlining shows with John Brown’s Body (including the third teaming up for 4/20 weekend at Brooklyn Bowl), two shows with Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub, and four shows with Rochester’s celebrated Thunder Body. Longtime collaborator Cas Haley brings his band, Big Hope along to open all of the dates on the Southeastern section of the run. The band also makes its first appearance during JazzFest in New Orleans with a show at Howlin’ Wolf along with Ivan Neville’s Dumpstafunk.
