Tropidelic Drops New LP "Heavy Is The Head" This Friday, November 10 Via Pepper's LAW Records

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Cleveland, OH's Tropidelic will drop their new album, 'Heavy Is The Head', their first for Pepper's LAW Records, this Friday, November 10.
Featuring 10 tracks of the band's signature mix of reggae, hip-hop and high energy funk, the album is available for pre-order, which includes an instant download of the song "Hey Now."

Frontman Matthew Roads says, "A lot of our songs are upbeat and funky. It's very eclectic, which is what all of our albums have been, but this one even more so. We combined our efforts more than we ever have in the past for this record. The album features songs written by several members. We did more refining and filtering on this record than on any other in the past."
He adds, "The album title is a direct reflection of the sacrifices, struggle and pain endured en route to the top, or when you reach the top of whatever it is you're after."

Having played and toured with acts such as Slightly Stoopid, 311, Pepper, Sugar Ray, Dirty Heads, The Wailers, Flobots, Passafire, Ballyhoo!, and many more, these seasoned road dogs plan to stay on tour in support of the new record, focusing on headlining shows and festival dates. The band will be out supporting Badfish in February (see dates below), with additional gigs to be announced soon.

About Tropidelic:
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.
"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 on 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."
