Reggae-influenced alternative rock band IRATION is hitting the road this summer with their friends Slightly Stoopid as the main support on the “Sounds of Summer 2017” tour. The two month cross-country outing—also featuring J Boog and The Movement—will be stopping locally in BALTIMORE on THURSDAY, JUNE 8 at PIER SIX PAVILION. Tickets are on sale now; go to www.irationmusic.com for more information and ticketing details.
“We are very excited to announce that we will be joining our brothers from Slightly Stoopid, J Boog and The Movement this summer on the Sounds of Summer 2017 Tour,” shares IRATION. “We have toured with The Movement before but this is our FIRST TOUR! with both Stoopid and Boog, which makes it very special. Plus, we love the Hot Rain band, so vibes are soaring at the moment. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
IRATION released their all-acoustic album DOUBLE UP digitally December 2, 2016 via their own Three Prong Records. The 10-track album features a mix of the band’s hits from their previous releases, including “Reelin” off their most recent full-length Hotting Up (2015); “One Way Track” and “Back Around” from 2013’s Automatic; “Summer Nights” from their Fresh Grounds EP (2011); and “Time Bomb” and “Falling” off 2010’s Time Bomb. Both Hotting Up and Automatic peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums Chart with Time Bomb reaching #2 on the chart. IRATION is currently in the studio working on new music.
The Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based group—Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor (bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth) and Micah Brown (guitar/vocals)—wrapped their January-February headlining “Lost & Found Winter Tour” at the One Love Cali Reggae Festival at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA and recently supported the Zac Brown Band at the Jackson Hole Rendezvous in Jackson Hole, WY on March 18. Prior to launching their massive summer trek, IRATION will return to the California Roots Music and Arts Festival in Monterey, CA as a headliner on Saturday, May 27.
