SLIGHTLY STOOPID AND PEPPER TO CO-HEADLINE FALL 2006 TOUR!
Get ready to bring the party! Slightly Stoopid and Pepper, two of the most innovative dub-rock bands out there, are set to co-headline their Fall 06 tour that takes off October 19th in Anaheim.
Southern California's Slightly Stoopid fuses acoustic rock and blues with reggae, hip-hop, dub, metal, funk, and punk to create a signature sound. Ranked by Pollstar as one of the Top 50 Touring Bands this year, Slightly Stoopid packs houses across the world with their surf-inspired jams. Veteran music festival performers, the band has played with Dave Matthews Band, Sublime, The Roots, G. Love and Special Sauce, Blink 182, and Toots and the Maytals. One of the most successful independent bands to come around in the last few years, Slightly Stoopid has sold over 200,000 units on their own label, STOOPID RECORDS.
Hailing from Kona, Hawaii, Pepper is a dub-rock power trio with reggae-rock roots. Mixing influences like Nirvana and Black Sabbath with the likes of Bad Brains and Sublime, Pepper creates some of the best "kick back, sunny side, back side, grinding mellow guitar picking, cool wave riding sounds" around. The Fall Tour coincides with the October 3rd release of their latest album, No Shame, the band's major label debut on Lava/Atlantic Records.
This isn't the first time the bands will be touring together. Yesod Williams, the drummer of Pepper says, "Reunited and it feels so good! It's like touring with your family again with us and Stoopid out together for the first time in three years."
"We are looking forward to touring with Pepper again" says Miles Doughty, one of Slightly Stoopid's frontmen. "It is usually one big party when the two bands get together, and it is definitely the best tour for fans."
