Reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration are bringing their “Zen Island Tour” to Denver on Thursday, May 5 at Mission Ballroom with special guests Tropidelic and Kash’d Out. PRESS HERE for ticketing information.
The Hawaiian-bred, California-based quintet – Micah Pueschel [lead vocals/guitar], Adam Taylor [bass], Joe Dickens [drums], Cayson Peterson [keyboard/synth], Micah Brown [guitar/vocals] – is touring in support of their latest full-length album Coastin’, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart upon its June 2020 release. A record about being thankful for the moments that we have, Coastin’ (Three Prong Records), the band’s seventh full-length studio album, is a 13-song musical journey showcasing Iration’s distinct hybrid style of music blending rock and reggae with elements of pop and newly incorporated R&B, funk and jazz sounds, set against meaningful and personal lyrics that push positivity, good vibes and good feelings into the world. Coastin’, declared “truly a melting pot of what this group is capable of” by mxdwn, features the singles “Right Here Right Now,” “Move Forward,” “Coastin’” and “Chill Out” along with guest appearances from Common Kings and Eli-Mac. PRESS HERE to listen to Coastin’.
Since their formation over 15 years ago, Iration has racked up more than 1 billion total streams worldwide and established themselves as one of the most popular reggae-rock bands in the world. Their previous albums Hotting Up  and Automatic  both peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums Chart with Iration , Double Up  and Time Bomb  each reaching #2 on the chart. The celebrated five-piece, fresh off a triple-header weekend back home in Hawaii, will take their vivacious live performance to select cities this spring on their headlining Zen Island Tour, which concludes May 27th back in California for the band’s triumphant return to the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival. Throughout their impressive and growing career, Iration has also brought their aloha spirit to such festivals as Lollapalooza, Hangout, SXSW, Life Is Beautiful and Outside Lands and special events for the San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers and Bernie Sanders, in addition to selling out headlining shows across the country and touring alongside such artists as Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Sublime With Rome, UB40, Dirty Heads, 311, and many more.
Following their spring tour, Iration will be hitting the road this summer with underground hip-hop titans Atmosphere for their co-headlining ”Sunshine & Summer Nights Tour.” The massive 30-date cross-country outing also features support from alt-rock/hip-hop hybrid band Katastro and founding member of Living Legends, rapper and producer The Grouch with DJ Fresh.
