Los Angeles, CA--August 20th, 2012---Grammy nominated artist Matisyahu has announced that he will be embarking on a headlining nationwide college tour this fall during the months of October and November.  As one of America’s most successful touring artists, Matisyahu has spent the summer months co-headlining with the Dirty Heads and making stops in over 50 cities to support his fourth studio album Spark Seeker, which was released to rave reviews.  "I'm looking forward to taking the show directly to college kids this fall" says Matisyahu.  "I've played a lot of these markets in past summers.  To be able to return when school is in session and kids are on campus is something I've wanted to do for a while."  Spark Seeker debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chartNo.1 on the Reggae Chart, No.3 on the Independent Album Chart and No. 7 on the Digital Album Chart.  Also garnering well-deserved acclaim is album track, “Live Like a Warrior” which sat at No.1 on the Reggae Single Chart and “Sunshine” at No. 2 during Spark Seeker’s release week.  

On Spark Seeker, produced by Kool Kojak (Nicki Minaj, Travis Barker, Ke$ha) and released on his own label, Fallen Sparks Records via Thirty Tigers/RED on July 17th, Matisyahu has expanded his sound and made his most accessible album to date.  The album mixes ancient traditional sounds with futuristic electro beats, rapping with singing, and songs of the spirit with songs of the body. The album has a depth to it as well as a lightness, which alludes to the most essential theme of the record--that everything in life--especially music--exists in mixtures and blends.  Matisyahu explains that “Things are not as black and white as we would like to think.  Not everything can be oversimplified," which is a message the new album conveys with both energy and thoughtfulness.
