John Brown’s Body’s Fireflies has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart.  Fireflies (released September 9, 2016 on Easy Star Records) is the band’s eleventh full-length release and celebrates a fruitful 20-year career, encapsulating the evolution of the band while demonstrating that they are nowhere close to stopping.  The album debuted impressively on other Billboard charts including #25 on the Heatseekers Chart.  The album mirrors the success of 2013’s Kings and Queens album and 2008’s Amplify, which both debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart.

“It’s truly impressive to see JBB fans from 20 years ago continue to grow with the band alongside new fans embracing their new album worldwide.  Their sound continues to evolve from release to release appealing to a wide audience from different music scenes and lifestyles outside their core reggae community.  JBB’s consistent musical output and live shows combined with their dedicated fans is what helped them reach #1,” says Easy Star CEO Eric Smith.

The band is currently on tour showcasing songs from the new album and back catalog.
