John Brown's Body: New EP, U.S. Tour

JOHN BROWN'S BODY ANNOUNCES
NEW RELEASE AND U.S. TOUR

John Brown's Body
It's been four years since groundbreaking reggae band John Brown's Body last put out a record, 2008's Amplify. The wait for new music is over, as the octet will release an EP of mostly instrumental dub, JBB In Dub, on September 18. Two days later the band kicks off their fall U.S. tour at One Pelham East in Newport, RI. The four-week tour will span the Northeast, the West Coast, and Colorado.

Once again working with their longtime label Easy Star Records, John Brown's Body has focused this latest release on dubs that reflect both their foundations in classic reggae drum and bass-style music and their usual progressive approaches to the genre. JBB In Dub features six dubs, plus "The Grass," featuring vocals from frontman Elliot Martin. The songs were mixed in Boston by former JBB engineer and current 10 Ft. Ganja Plant member Craig "Dub Fader" Welsch (State Radio, The Aggrolites) at his studio.

The band has posted the song "Wellington" for free download on their Facebook page.
