Wintertime reggae: Iration hits MontBleu Feb. 1

Iration
Iration plays at MontBleu on Feb. 1

Iration will return Feb. 1 to the MontBleu Theatre.

The reggae-influenced rockers will hit Lake Tahoe on its coast-to-coast “Automatic Winter Tour” with  Natural Vibrations, the Movement and select dates with Micah Brown beginning in Southern California and weaving their way across the U.S. to Florida and back again.

This year has represented a period of growth for the Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based band, with their career elevating to a new level. Armed with their third full-length album “Automatic, Iration” — Micah Pueschel (guitar/vocals), Joe Dickens (drums), Adam Taylor (bass) and Cayson Peterson (keyboards) — pushed their musical boundaries, with an emphasis on the craft of songwriting, while staying true to the sound their fans love. The band collaborated with Cage The Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish who is featured on several tracks and helped co-produce select songs on the album along with long-time studio partner JP Hesser of Castaway 7 Studios in Ventura, Calif.

“To me, ‘Automatic’ is very, very different from (the 2010 album) ‘Time Bomb,’ ” Micah said. “It’s still us, but what made ‘Time Bomb’ a popular record was hooks, feel-good music, good rhythms–uplifting, for the most part. But we also wanted to do more songs that were geared to traditional roots reggae and have some rock influences. We wanted to experiment and do some acoustics … ‘Automatic’ is much more diverse and eclectic as far as style. Another way is that the lyrical content is more mature.”

The 16-track album reached No. 1 on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Albums charts, as well as 7 on the iTunes Overall Albums chart, 75 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and 17 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.

A music video for the album’s first official single “Back Around” has more than 35,000 views on YouTube. Watch the video — shot in Iration’s Santa Barbara  hometown — here: http://youtu.be/2dqJQJ3Ievs. The song also received radio airplay nationwide, reaching  No.1 on most stations’ playlists where it was added, including spending several weeks at No. 1 for San Diego’s 91X.
