Summer’s Just Around The Corner!

Greetings Easy Star Nation,

Plenty of Easy Star news to share with you. With summer on the horizon, it’s safe to say Easy Star has a lot going on in the coming months! And nothing goes better with summer than some fresh reggae music.

First off, we are proud to announce the release of The Black Seeds’ newest full-length album, Dust & Dirt, which was released today in North America! Check out what The Santa Barbara Independent had to say about the new record here (one quote: “The Black Seeds are a prime example of a group that gets it right and continues to push reggae forward in new, exciting directions.”) You can get a sneak peek, courtesy of AOL Spinner’s Listening Party, here. Make sure to catch The Black Seeds on tour in support of the release where they’ll make stops on the West Coast and New York before heading across the pond.

The Green will be a part of this year’s Vans Warped Tour! Here’s a list of the tour dates, so you can see if they are coming anywhere near you. Also, The Green have released a behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling a week in the life of the band. Lastly, we’ll be releasing a limited edition green-vinyl LP version of Ways & Means on Record Store Day, April 21. It’ll be available exclusively at participating independent record stores. We will work on posting a list of stores that will carry the record before the release date. Stay tuned.

Be good to one another,
