Matisyahu performed “Sunshine” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Watch it below:

2012

Matisyahu blasts off yet again with Spark Seeker (out July 17th), a bold new studio album that finds the one-of-a-kind vocalist and songwriter exploring uncharted territory with help from an expansive cast of collaborators, including Shyne. “My musical tastes are all over the board,” he says in reference to a record that mixes ancient traditional sounds with futuristic electro beats, rapping with singing, songs of the spirit with songs of the body. “And, besides, my music has never been about the outer garment. It’s about searching out inspiration wherever it lies. This album is about seeking that spark within.”

Take a listen to the single “Sunshine” (iTunes) below:

THE DIRTY HEADS and Matisyahu have added more shows to their co-headlining summer tour, which kicks off July 8 in Vienna, VA at The Filene Center. In addition to those shows, the band will be performing a handful of select dates with Sublime With Rome. Fans can visit the band’s website and Facebook page for ticket information and the latest updates. Tickets are on sale now, with pre-orders and VIP packages available here: http://bit.ly/DirtyHeadsTickets.

The SoCal band’s highly anticipated new album, CABIN BY THE SEA, will be globally released June 19 on Five Seven Music and can be described as the “ultimate summer soundtrack.” It features collaborations with tour mate Matisyahu, as well as Del the Funky Homosapien, Ky-Mani Marley and Rome.

“Summer’s here and we are starting it off the best possible way I can imagine: by going on a cruise with 311. When we get home from the cruise, our album CABIN BY THE SEA will be released,” said singer Jared “Dirty J” Watson. “We’ll be heading out on our biggest summer tour yet with Matisyahu, who’s also featured on the album. This summer’s gonna be hot, fun, insane. We’re planning tail-gate parties before the shows and after show parties at night. It’s just going to be one big party. Hope to see you there – all love!”

THE DIRTY HEADS recently partnered with MTV to premiere the music video for the new album’s lead single “Spread Too Thin,” which can now be seen on the band’s YouTube page here: http://bit.ly/DHSTT. In just 4 weeks, the single is already top 15 on the Alternative radio charts and follows 2010’s “Lay Me Down,” which holds the record for most weeks at #1 on the Billboard “Alternative Songs” chart.

Matisyahu performed “Miracle” on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Watch the video below:

21 Nov
2011

Last year, Matisyahu surprised his fans when he released a brand new track entitled “Miracle” on the first night of Chanukah along with a music video that went viral, reaching over 900,000 views on YouTube. “Miracle” quickly became the modern Chanukah anthem and garnered attention from the likes of The Huffington Post, Spinner, NPR and Paste. Now, back by popular demand, Matisyahu will release his Miracle EP digitally and physically November 21st, via Fallen Sparks Records/Thirty Tigers and Red Distribution. The Miracle EP features alternate versions of “Miracle” including a track with his band Dub Trio, guest vocals by rapper Shyne, a remix by freshman UC Boulder student Miniweapon, a beatboxing and acoustic version. Stream the Miracle EP in its entirety on RollingStone.com NOW. Click HERE to listen.

Matisyahu will also release a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl for Record Store Day’s Black Friday on November 25 including the original and Dub Trio versions of “Miracle”. To celebrate, Matisyahu will hold an in-store acoustic performance and signing at Long Island’s premiere longstanding indie record outpost, Looney Tunes on November 25th at noon, for more details, click HERE.

“Miracle,” written by Matisyahu and Dr. Luke protégé Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Ke$ha), is drenched in joyful spirit and features chiming synths, bouncing beats and an irresistible chorus. Not since Adam Sandler’s “Hannukah Song” has the holiday had a jam so fun! The music video finds Matisyahu channeling his former hockey skills and dusting off his skates as he takes to the ice dressed in an unconventional costume. Check out the video for “Miracle” here!

Matisyahu, backed by his band Dub Trio will also be hitting the road this December on his sixth annual Festival of Light tour, kicking off on December 19th in Brooklyn, NY.

Tickets for the Festival of Light tour are on sale October 5.

In keeping up with the Festival of Light tradition, fans can expect a very diverse group of support acts and special guests to be a part of these shows. Known for never performing the same show twice, Matisyahu has created a custom-built live experience for his audiences and continues to bring the Festival of Light through Hannukah and the surrounding dates.

Matisyahu will perform songs from all of his albums including his most recent Live at Stubb’s Vol. II. Five years after creating an indelible mark on the U.S.’ musical consciousness with the release of his groundbreaking live album, Live at Stubb’s, Matisyahu returned to famed Austin, TX venue with his band the Dub Trio for an unfortgettable music experience. The collection was released as a DVD/VD and holds a special meaning for him and his devoted fans.

Praise for Matisyahu’s live shows:

“His skillful signature beat-boxing wove between fast raps and his very powerful singing voice filled the room. Many of his choruses seemed like chants, entrancing the crowd.” –Relix

“Matisyahu led the audience into the magic of his voice creating the connection that would unify the stage and floor throughout the rest of the evening.”-Examiner.com

“The show was a well-executed showcase of the sounds and styles of Matisyahu, an artist with his roots firmly planted in his faith and in reggae but with an unending desire to grow and develop as a musician.” –Riverfront Times
“His live performances are a deep gaze into the psychedelic abyss that is as much Dark Side of the Moon as it is No Woman No Cry.” ­–Boise Weekly

Grammy-nominated reggae artist Matisyahu will be heading out on tour this summer in support of his latest release, Live at Stubb’s Vol. II. With a staggering 54 tour dates this summer, Matisyahu will be zig-zagging his way across the country kicking off his run of dates in Boston on June 25, making a stop at Red Rocks in Colorado opening for Blues Traveler on July 4, and playing special select dates with The Wailers. Live at Stubb’s Vol. II is Matisyahu’s first offering since his 2009 critically acclaimed studio album Light, which debuted inside the Billboard Top 20 and whose single “One Day” was chosen as the official theme song for NBC’s 2010 Winter Olympics broadcast. Relix said the new collection is “proof that Matisyahu can naturally straddle the line between pop star and jamband stalwart like few of his peers.”

Five years after creating an indelible mark on the U.S.’ musical consciousness with the release of his groundbreaking original live album, Live at Stubb’s, Matisyahu returned to the famed Austin, TX, venue last August with his band the Dub Trio for an unforgettable live music experience. Showcasing his impressive artistic evolution and incredible vibrancy on stage, this raw and inspiring musical journey was captured in the form of Live at Stubb’s Vol. II – a rare and sure-to-be-treasured time capsule for the magic that happened in Austin that night. The collection was released as a DVD/CD and the DVD was premiered at SXSW this year in the city of its origin. Now, with three critically acclaimed albums, Matisyahu has become one of the most beloved and pioneering artists in music today with Stubb’s holding a special meaning for him and his devoted fans.
