Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad's Make It Better has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. Make It Better (released September 16, 2016 on Rootfire Cooperative) is the band's sixth studio album and their second release to claim the #1 spot on the Billboard Reggae Chart.

"It's great to see Panda fans embracing their new album and connecting to it on so many levels," says Seth Herman founder of Rootfire Cooperative. He adds, "Over the past 15 years, Panda has been able to successfully traverse many styles with a level of musicianship, passion, and dedication that is relentless. Make It Better is another step in that direction with a relevant theme that is current, but will also stand the test of time."

The new album from the Rochester, New York-based quintet addresses the theme and title of the album, not just through music, but through art, conversation, and everyday living. With children, families, and age, the band has made an effort to focus on the economics of time: how to spend it together efficiently while pursuing goals with intention. This vision helped shine new light on the importance of capturing and sharing recorded moments more frequently. The result is the band's finest work to date.

You can catch them in Denver on Saturday, February 18 @ Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom.
