The Aggrolites work up IV; make South American debut

The Aggrolites bring forth their spirited reggae with new album IV, due out on June 9. Featuring 21 original and self-produced tracks, singer Jesse Wagner boasts, “I’m very excited about our new album. It represents a real optimistic view on today’s trying times. We’re “Running Strong” and “Feelin’ Alright” about how hard we’ve been working, as you can tell by certain song titles. I’m looking forward to hearing what the people think. We put a touch of all three previous albums into this. From “Dirty Reggae” organ scorchers to those sing-along tracks everyone knows so well from our self-titled record. We also jumped out of the box a bit with songs like “It’s Gonna Be Ok” and “Tear That Falls.” Here’s some advice… listen to the album from track 1 thru 10. When you’re ready for something new, start the album from track 11 and listen until it ends. Or just shuffle the damn thing on your iPod like you do everything else. All in all, we are just very proud of this record.”

The band will soon debut in South America with headlining shows in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre. “Brazil’s music has been a deep influence for The Aggrolites. It’s been a dream of ours to finally bring some dirty reggae to the birthplace of bossa nova. Get ready for an Aggro party,” shares organist Roger Rivas.
