Cleveland, OH's Tropidelic dropped their new album, 'Heavy Is The Head', their first for Pepper's LAW Records, today, 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, with additional gigs to be announced soon.
