Mr. Green All-Stars feat. DKs, Fishbone, Suicidal T members

Hardcore/Punk Rock/Reggae Super Group
Launches World Tour This Fall In California

Norwood Fischer by Jake Krolick
Are you ready for the ferocious punk/ metal lines of bass guitarist Norwood Fisher of Fishbone? For the snarling blasts of thrash metal and virtuoso guitar leads provided by Rocky George of Suicidal Tendencies? Pounding tribal drum/ metal rhythms from D.H. Peligro of the Dead Kennedys? The jaw-dropping stage performance and vocal range of Lyon Rowland of Hawaiian Lyon Human Rights? These talented musicians come together to form the super group Mr. Green All-Stars, who are launching their world tour across seven continents this October, beginning in their home state of California.

Mr. Green All-Stars describes themselves as "misfits of the world who believe in freedom of expression—no matter what the cost." The members of this super group are known for their unique, energetic hybrid of punk rock and reggae, with lyrics that address political and human rights issues, as well as their incredibly skilled musicianship. Their high-speed music evokes the world of action sports, as well as a sense of anarchy and freedom, and their blend of shout-along melodies and driving hooks encourages crowds to join in at their performances.

The Mr. Green All-Stars announced their first album, Seeing is Believing, in 2006. H.R. of Bad Brains contributed vocals to four tracks, including the Rolling Stones' cover "She's A Rainbow," and he will also lend his unique punk rock/ reggae vocal style as a guest performer on the 2009 tour. The tour's second guest star, Jamaican engineer and dub originator The Scientist, also co-engineered the All-Stars' album, along with Dave Aaron, engineer for Snoop Dogg and Sublime.

Mr. Green All-Stars plan to release their second album, You Can't Put Me In a Box, in 2010. In the meantime, they're kicking off their "Seeing is Believing" world tour with performances at Canes in San Diego and The Dub Club in Echo Park, Los Angeles in October 2009.
