Reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration has released their new self-titled full-length studio album on (5/18) via their own label, Three Prong Records. The 17-track album–currently sitting at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Albums chart and #13 on their overall Top Albums chart–features guest appearances by J Boog and Tyrone’s Jacket on new single “Danger” along with Slightly Stoopid on the song “Broken Promises.” Iration also features previous singles “Hit List,” “Fly With Me,” which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Songs chart, and “Borderlines,” which garnered airplay at alt stations in San Diego, Miami, Las Vegas, Sacramento, New Orleans and Santa Barbara, among several other markets. See the full track listing below.
“We’ve always been a band with very eclectic influences. We’ve never shied away from exploring different styles or sounds,” shares lead singer and songwriter Micah Pueschel. “We’ve always said that we don’t care what ‘genre’ a song fits into, we just care that we serve the song and let IT dictate where we go. This album was two years in the making and is what we consider the definitive sound of Iration. You’ll hear all of our influences being channeled and it might take you a few listens before you hear them all. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the ride.”
