Iration
Iration
Iration is an alternative/reggae group of musicians who met while growing up in Hawaii but formed the band after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, CA. The band’s 2010 release Time Bomb hit #1 on the iTunes Reggae Album Chart and has enjoyed a very successful run on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart to date as well. The band's EP releases include New Roots (2006), Sample This EP (2008) and Fresh Grounds (2011). The group has been touring nationally since 2007, performing at festivals such as: Lollapalooza, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and Sunset Strip Music Festival. Iration has headlined several successful national headline club tours with numerous sold out

shows nationwide. Their third full-length album, Automatic, combines elements of reggae, rock and pop to create a truly unique listening experience. Automatic debuted at #75 on Billboard Top 200, #17 Billboard Top independent, and #1 on Billboard Top Reggae charts. Multiple songs by Iration have
topped alternative radio station charts throughout the country - including Time Bomb's "Turn Around" and "Falling," as well as Automatic's "Back Around" and title track which was recently remixed for the radio and is starting to receive spins nationwide.
Pacific Dub
Pacific Dub
Coming from Surf City USA, Pacific Dub resides in Huntington Beach which is nestled nicely in southern California's Orange County. Other bands such as Korn, The Offspring, Avenged Sevenfold, and The Dirty Heads all have members that call this surfer's paradise home.

Combining catchy chorus's, heavy rock n' roll guitar melodies, and smooth hip-hop and reggae rhythms are all significant characteristics that add to Pacific Dub's coastal vibe, and genuine objective of creating innovative alternative-rock-reggae while sharing a message of love and peace.

Now with 4 Western US Tours, 3 Albums, 1 single, and an ever growing and enthusiastic fan base under their belt, Pacific Dub shows no signs of slowing down now. Following multiple sold out shows supporting bands such as- The Dirty Heads, Iration, & Rebelution on their 2011 Spring Tours, PDub has been hard at work writing new songs, which eventually will turn into the bands next 12-15 song full-length album.

In between writing and recording, the band intends to tour extensively throughout the remainder of 2011- including a Co-Headlining National Summer Tour w/ The Movement.
From the entire Pacific Dub family, we thank you for your continued support, and look forward to releasing new music, and seeing you at a show soon.
