New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Cleveland, OH's Tropidelic may be far from any tropical islands but that doesn't stop them from dishing out an interesting mix of reggae, hip - hop and high energy funk for audiences across the country.
The six-piece band has signed with Pepper's LAW Records for their forthcoming 2017 release, "Heavy is The Head" which will be released on November 10. The album will be available for pre-order on October 13. See artwork and tracklist below.
"Our socio-political views vary as much as our musical tastes and always seep into the music," says frontman Matthew Roads. "There's certainly a lot that needs to be said, but on this record we tried to be well-rounded and touch on a broad scope of emotions."
Tropidelic has a deep and widespread appreciation for music that can be heard in each note. Some of the members are hip-hop heads, while others are into metal, funk or reggae. But each of these genres lends something to their collective sound. "We pride ourselves in being original in our musicality and personality as a band," says Roads, "but also in not taking ourselves so seriously that it ruins the fun."
These seasoned road dogs can be found spreading their soulful sound across the country in both intimate venues and music festivals, having shared the stage with and supported such acts as Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Sugar Ray, Dirty Heads, The Wailers, Passafire, Ballyhoo! and many more. Previously, Tropidelic has been featured at Werk Out Festival, Reggae on the River, Night Lights Music
Festival, an appearance at Warped Tour, SXSW and supporting Badfish through the East and Midwest.
For the remainder of 2017, expect to the see the band focused on headlining tours and festival dates in support of the new record.
