Rockers Revolt proudly present
THE PIETASTERS-ALL DAY (RRHITCD3) - in shops-June 2008 - available now from www.myspace.com/rockersrevolt
The Pietasters first break came early for Washington D.C.’s ska darlings in 1997, when Rancid’s Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion): the genre-defining 'Willis' (SPIN Magazine called it “An equal opportunity dancehall crasher — part ‘60s keg rock, part 2 Tone and part Motown”) and 'Awesome Mix Tape #6' (CMJ noted it for “lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms”). The soul-charged 'Turbo' was released in 2002 by Fueled by Ramen. The Pietasters shared bills with NOFX and Less Than Jake on the epic ’98 and ’99 Warped Tours, Joe Strummer 3 and worked as James Brown’s back-up band for one surreal and historic evening.
With over 200,000 past sales under The 'Tasters belts, Rockers Revolt now proudly presents their first new album in five years, The Pietasters- All Day, which captures superbly the high energy, brotherly camaraderie and attention to detail on which they’ve built their rock-steady name as an explosive live attraction. Expect a soul & ska rollercoaster ride from the band that backed James Brown!
THE SLACKERS-SELF MEDICATION (RRHITCD4) - in shops June 2008 - available now from www.myspace.com/rockersrevolt
"America's premiere interpreters of Jamaican music", The Slackers are most emphatically back with this, their 15th album! Never failing to set new standards as they twist and turn their way through a Jamaican musical history lesson, the NYC kings of reinvention have somehow managed to top last years superb 'Boss Harmony Sessions' album (RRHITCD1). The brand new 'Self Medication' brings you a collection of beautifully crafted songs, in the tradition of the great American story tellers.
The Slackers have headlined 16 major US Tours and 13 European tours. They have appeared on the Warped Tour, Lowlands Festival, Pukkelpop, CMJ, Montreal Jazz Festival, Deconstruction Tour, Popkomm, Summerjam and many other major world festivals. They have toured with Rancid, Joe Strummer, Floggin Molly, Jimmy Cliff, Pennywise, Toots & the Maytals, The Pogues and John Spencer’s Heavy Traffic creating a huge following in the process.
