STS9 Free Digi Track


This past spring STS9 holed-up in their California studio space recording their much anticipated fourth album, Peaceblaster. The album is scheduled to be released some time early this summer. But today, Thursday, May 22, STS9 digitally releases the recently recorded single "Shock Doctrine," offering a rare glimpse into STS9's new material.

"Shock Doctrine" can be downloaded for free or streamed at It may also be downloaded as part of a podcast on iTunes . On this first-ever 1320 podcast, "Shock Doctrine" debuts as the podcasts' first track, which also features new singles from artists off the bands' self-owned label, 1320 Records, including Count Bass D, Pnuma Trio, Collective Efforts, sub-ID, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, and LoPro Lounge.

Look for STS9 on tour in the coming months. For July, touring heavyweights STS9 and Umphrey's McGee team up for what promises to be one of the hardest-hitting tours of the summer. This co-bill will feature extended sets by both bands, and will stop in Midwest and east coast cities throughout the month of July. The tour will also offer very special late night sets by each band in select markets, including Philadelphia, Madison, Chicago, NYC, and Atlanta.

The month of August includes headlining stops in Berkeley, CA, Portland, OR and Seattle, WA for STS9, before the summer culminates with two huge shows at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Their western itinerary also offers two intimate, always popular and already sold out "Fan Club" shows in San Francisco, CA and Boulder, CO.

All shows on-sale now at TicketMaster.

let me just say that I am a big 9 fan but i couldnt get through this song without falling asleep, the end is kind of cool, I dont know tho I feel like tribe has fell off recently or maybe I'm just falling of of tribe. I still have high hoped for this album tho and its cool that they are giving it out.

STS9 is taking their music to a whole new level right now... I'm stoked to hear some their new songs live. I think they are going to kill it this summer, I can't wait for the Red Rocks shows to cap off my summer!

Dope pic of the tribe. perfect placement of lerner as the boom operator. seems to fit his style. new album has been a super long time comin', but it'll indubitably deliver. the tribe's star is shining bright as it is, and will only continue to grow brighter with the killer summer/fall that approaches.

I want to say I really enjoy the new track. Nicely done!!! Kinda chill track that has a bit of their darker side shining through. Can't wait to see how the live intrepretation of this will grow.

This whole album is the SHIT! So far, my favorite tracks have to be the dirty, break beat monster "1ioi2", the Tortoise inspired "Oh Little Brain" and "You Don't Say, which I can't wait to see live. Mighty fine album INDEED! Kudos to the Nine.

Hopefully umphreys will inspire sts9 to jam a little more this summer and get back to some more imporv - This new material has monster jam potential if they decide to take it in that direction.
