Los Angeles, CA. (June 12, 2007) – Juno-award winning Bedouin Soundclash will release the much anticipated follow-up to hit record “Sounding A Mosaic” August 21, 2007 on SideOneDummy Records. Titled “Street Gospels” the album features the single “12:59 Lullaby” which appeared on the hit series GREY’S ANATOMY as well as the infectious first single “Walls Fall Down”.

Recorded in Toronto and New York, the band once again called in the talents of legendary Punk-Reggae bass player Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains to produce “Street Gospels.” The band also brought in Money Mark (The Beastie Boys) on keys, Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Black Lungs) on vocals/guitar and the legendary Vernon Buckley vocalist of The Maytones, all lending their unique flavor to the album and helping to create the most diverse and grassroots Bedouin Soundclash record to date.

Bedouin Soundclash formed in 2001 at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, naming the group after Israeli fusion artist/producer Badawi’s 1996 release – which pays homage to nomadic Arabic poet tribe the Bedouins. Unlike most musicians who try to mimic their musical idols, Bedouin Soundclash forges their own musical path creating music embodying each member’s personal and diverse musical preferences, creating their own innovative fusion of Reggae, Rock, Punk and Soul.

2005’s sophomore release “Sounding A Mosaic” featured the hit single “When The Night Feels My Song” and gained the band a loyal fan base.

With performances all over the world including the renowned Leeds and Reading Festivals, London’s V-Fest, and PuklePop, Bedouin Soundclash brings their soulful, energetic live show once again to North America this fall.
