“We love the South Florida audience as their energy levels transcend most others. Fort Lauderdale is home to two of our members, so it holds a special place in our hearts. What better place to play reggae and ska music?”
On 4/20 Spred the Dub celebrated their 8th year on the music scene with the release of their critically acclaimed, and highly anticipated second album Coming Home Drunk, a collection of 11 tracks with an incomparable groove. Immediately evident is the band’s admiration for their favorite influences, including Alton Ellis, Toots and the Maytals, and The Aggrolites, proven as their payment of homage to original roots and ska music is authentically executed. Songs such as “She’s My Baby”, “So Sad”, and “You and I”, defy you not to dance, while their title track “Coming Home Drunk” makes a shot of whiskey seem like a perfectly good idea. The hidden bonus track “Old Habits”, gives a nod to their affection for country music. Unique to the modern reggae movement, Spred the Dub committed to stay true by meticulously recording the album live, onto two-inch tape reels, at Blackwood Productions. By doing so, the listener experiences an amazing sound quality, uncommon, nostalgic, and a welcome change. Rodney Mills Studio in Atlanta impeccably mastered the album. All perfectly wrapped in album artwork by the lead graphic designer for Santa Cruz skateboards, Cody Melick
Spred the Dub has been methodically paving their way in the reggae music scene, building a huge Florida fan base, and expanding it with national touring. The group of six members combined their incredible talents as singers, songwriters, instrumentalists, producers and self-released the album. Spred the Dub celebrated the release with a packed house at E. R. Bradley’s Saloon in their hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida. Luckily for their fans, an East Coast tour is planned for 2016.
