ROOTS OF CREATION ANNOUNCES WINTER TOUR 2018 + NEW ALBUM GRATEFUL DUB: A REGGAE-INSPIRED TRIBUTE TO THE GRATEFUL DEAD
(NH – February 2, 2018) Roots of Creation (RoC) announce their highly anticipated coast-to-coast Grateful Dub 2018 tour dates! The band kicks off the tour appropriately at Garcia’s in Port Chester, NY for Deadcenter: a Bob Marley Birthday Celebration on February 7th.
Highlights on the 33+ date tour includes supporting Wyclef Jean (The Fugees) at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg. They are also set to return to Stratton, VT on March 24th for the band’s follow-up to supporting The Dirty Heads. Rounding out the tour, they head to the west coast, performing at the amazing Kaya Festival w/ The Marley Brothers (feat. Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Julian) on April 28 – 29th in San Bernadino, California.
Joining RoC on select dates of the Grateful Dub 2018 Tour are hot, up and coming Reggae/Rock acts – Kash’d Out (Orlando, FL), who just released a new single and video for “One + Off” (on Pepper’s LAW records), and The Elovaters (Boston, MA), who just got out of the studio recording their new album with producer, Danny Kalb (The Movement, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Ben Harper).
RoC will be on tour supporting their new album, Grateful Dub, to be released worldwide March 9th, 2018 on the band’s label, Bombshelter Records, in collaboration with Controlled Substance Sound Labs (distribution: SRG-ILS via Caroline/Universal Music Group). The new record was recorded, mixed, and co-produced by Errol Brown (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Rebelution), and features collaborations with Stephen Marley, G. Love, Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), and more! (Pre-orders available here.)
Exciting options for fans at each show include a CD bundled with each advance ticket, special limited runs (100 each) of two exclusive signed posters on standard/foil paper by Nathaniel Dias (Bourbon Sunday) and Catt Gould, a new merch line designed by Catt Gould / Merchwide, VIP upgrades will be going on sale soon, and special bundles available at the merch run by Granite Lion Entertainment.
