Long Beach Dub Allstars have reunited and released their first taste of new music in over 2 decades with two new tracks “Holding Out” and “Steady Customer” online at https://open.spotify.com/album/5oukAfb2RSS4M0F9FtdLJq.
This is the first new music from Long Beach Dub Allstars since the release of 2001’s “Wonders of the World”. The songs are currently available on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify, as well as all other digital music retailers. The band is also giving away both tracks to fans that purchase any items from the group’s recently relaunched webstore online at www.lbdamusic.com.
Long Beach Dub Allstars was formed after Sublime disbanded following the death of singer Bradley Nowell in 1996. Long Beach Dub Allstars released two now-classic albums “Right Back” (1999) and “Wonders of the World” (2001), before they went their separate ways in 2002. Long Beach Dub Allstars’ unique mixture of danceable reggae beats and fiery punk-rock energy had a lasting impact on the scene, with both albums becoming highly influential to the groups that came after them.
Long Beach Dub Allstars reunited in 2013 with “Ras MG” Goodman on drums, Michael “Miguel” Happoldt on guitar, Opie Ortiz on vocals, Jack Maness on keys, Tim Wu on horns, Edwin Kampwirth on bass, and Roger Rivas of The Aggrolites on organ.
Long Beach Dub Allstars will be playing a string of West Coast dates throughout November with Fortunate Youth and Arise Roots.
