Automatic Winter Tour with special guests Natural Vibrations,
The Movement, and Micah Brown on Saturday, February 1 at Montbleu Resort,
South Lake Tahoe
PR Entertainment Presents IRATION plus Special Guest Natural Vibrations, The Movement and Micah Brown on Saturday, February 1 at Montbleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. IRATION will kick off 2014 by doing what they love so much, hitting the road to play music and hang out with their fans. On their two-month tour, one of their stops is, of course, at Montbleu Resort.
The reggae-influenced rockers will embark on the coast-to-coast “Automatic Winter Tour”–with support from Natural Vibrations, The Movement and select dates with Micah Brown–beginning in Southern California and weaving their way across the U.S. to Florida and back again.
This year has represented a period of growth for the Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based band, with their career elevating to a new level. Armed with their third full-length album AUTOMATIC, IRATION–Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Vocals), Joe Dickens (Drums), Adam Taylor (Bass) and Cayson Peterson (Keyboards)–further pushed their musical boundaries, with an emphasis on the craft of songwriting, while staying true to the sound their fans love. The band collaborated with Cage The Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish who is featured on several tracks and helped co-produce select songs on the album along with long-time studio partner JP Hesser of Castaway 7 Studios in Ventura, CA.
“To me, Automatic is very, very different from [2010 album] Time Bomb,” said MICAH. “It's still us, but what made Time Bomb a popular record was hooks, feel-good music, good rhythms–uplifting, for the most part. But we also wanted to do more songs that were geared to traditional roots reggae and have some rock influences. We wanted to experiment and do some acoustics…Automatic is much more diverse and eclectic as far as style. Another way is that the lyrical content is more mature.”
The new direction paid off as the release of AUTOMATIC is their most successful release to date. The 16-track collection immediately shot all the way up to the #1 spot on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Albums charts, as well as #7 on the iTunes Overall Albums chart, #75 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and #17 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.
A music video for the album’s first official single “Back Around” has garnered over 35,000 views on YouTube. Watch the video–shot in IRATION’s Santa Barbara, CA hometown–here: http://youtu.be/2dqJQJ3Ievs. The song also received radio airplay nationwide, reaching #1 on most stations’ playlists where it was added, including spending several weeks at #1 for San Diego’s 91X.
Tickets will be $25 Day of Show (Plus Tax/Fees).
