GRiZ – “A New Day” (ft. Matisyahu)

Check out the next single “A New Day (feat. Matisyahu),” from GRiZ’s new upcoming album Ride Waves. The song was written days after last year’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL and aims to spread a message of peace, positivity, and love while sparking inspiration for change.

“Matisyahu’s voice speaks volumes to so many people. He has this unique ‘way’ of speaking and I am infinitely humbled that we were able to link up an idea that I think is very necessary today.” – GRiZ

“The song kind of wrote itself and came at a time when this was obviously what was going on around us and in our consciousness. When we walked into the studio we knew we wanted to make a meaningful song but we didn’t walk in there with this specific intention (addressing gun violence). But that’s what ended up coming out. When we came into that artistic place where we were like “let’s open up and figure out what is going on inside of us’, this is what rose to the top.” – Matisyahu

Tour Dates for The Wailers

wailers

Reggae music has never stopped evolving but for millions of people from around the world it’s still defined by the songs of Bob Marley and the Wailers. It’s been their heartbeat rhythms that have inspired so much of what’s followed since, as evidenced by the enduring popularity of the “one-drop” reggae sound.

The world’s most iconic reggae band The Wailers are currently touring the US, performing the prominent album Legend in its entirety. As they infiltrated reggae music to the world outside of Jamaica, its birth place, The Wailers celebrate their 30th anniversary of the album Legend. Named by Time Magazine as the “Best Album of the 20th Century” and #46 on Rolling Stone Magazine‘s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Legend is also the best selling reggae album of all time, with over 30 million copies sold worldwide. 

The Wailers have consistently toured for the past 40 years, and in doing so, have been keeping the legacy of Bob Marley alive. They are the most successful reggae group in history, having sold over 250 million albums worldwide and played to an estimated 25 million people around the world.  They have left an indelible mark on modern music. After touring in South America, Russia, Middle East, and Europe, The Wailers are eager to bring their good vibrations to festivals and venues across the country this summer.

Formed in the late sixties, The Wailers have created an extraordinary body of work and their music can be heard in every corner of the world today.  Original members included Bob Marley and his vocal partners Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, alongside the ground-breaking rhythm section of the Barrett brothers, Carlton on drums and Aston “Family Man” on bass. Today, Aston leads the band as it continues its worldwide campaign to promote peace, love and equality through the message of reggae and Rastafari.

Brand New: O.A.R. – “Peace”

unnamed

Rock band O.A.R. are well known for their incredible live performances that have seen them play to sold out audiences in iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks. The band has built their following off of extensive touring as well as a string of hit singles such as “Love and Memories,” “Shattered,” and now their current single “Peace.” “Peace”–the brand new song from their upcoming album–is a first for the band’s new label Vanguard Records.

“Peace” is the kind of anthemic song that has made O.A.R. a successful recording and touring band for well over a decade, garnering immediate major market airplay at radio stations across the country. Beginning today, fans can purchase the single on iTunes.

To celebrate the new single “Peace” and upcoming album, the band is kicking off “O.A.R.’s Extended Stay” club tour, playing special intimate shows, multiple nights at club size venues in April and May.

“This year we are bringing our Extended Stay tour out west so we can see fans we’ve missed for a long time,” said O.A.R. lead singer Marc Roberge. “We’re going to play some cuts off the new album, but really digging deep into the catalogue to make up for lost time.”
