Florida-based reggae rockers Kash’d Out release new single “Highway Robbery” featuring Katastro and announce 2022 tour dates with Iration

With a solid reputation as the hardest working band in reggae-rock, Kash’d Out delivers an anthem for everyone committed to the daily grind with their new “Highway Robbery” (out April 29, 2022, on LAW Records). The defiantly energetic collaboration with mainstay American alternative rock band Katastro represents the pentacle of Kash’d Outs’ songwriting and musicianship while maintaining the signature spirit, positive energy, and uncommon entrepreneurial hustle for which the band has always been known.

Kash’d Out are no strangers to rolling with the punches as they come and they know a combination of hard work, commitment to fans, and an audacious spirit of determination are required to keep  focused and blaze through any roadblocks that may arise on the slow and steady road to success.  “Highway Robbery” exemplifies that steadfast quality, which has won the band the support of a dedicated national fanbase of music lovers who show up to their performances in droves, as well as the respect of their musical peers and veterans in the music industry.

“I think I speak for all artists when I say it ain’t easy doing what we do, '' says Kash’d Out lead singer Greg Shields. “With every bit of growth comes another expense, and it’s crucial to our momentum. We put all we’ve got and then some into our operation so when there’s a roadblock, we’re going to blaze right through it to get where we need to be. Andy from Katastro slayed his verse, which for me is the icing on the cake because they’re out there grinding too!  We’ve been playing this song live and people ask about it often so I’m very excited for April 29th!”  

The single arrives just as Kash’d Out is embarking on a national multi-city tour with reggae-pop favorites Iration (see tour dates below).

Kash’d Out’s steady road to success began when guitarist Jackson Hauserman and vocalist Greg Shields met at Sound Lounge Studios, where Shields had been working with bands such as Ballyhoo and Tribal Seeds. The two hit it off, and after putting together their first self-titled debut EP, they recruited Hauserman’s old high school friend Joey Brohawn, who migrated from Baltimore to Florida to join on bass and later added Marshall Hearne on drums and Nick Gudzan on keys.

In this fully rounded-out emanation, the band released their first full-length album The Hookup in 2017 on LAW Records. That record climbed to #2 on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Charts just as the band began touring nationally, sharing the stage with fan favorites like Pepper, Less Than Jake, The Expendables, and many others.

Building on the momentum of their previous record, Kash’d Out released their sophomore album Undercover in 2019, featuring the mixing expertise of Paul Leary (Sublime, Butthole Surfers, etc.) The result was an incredibly strong pop-reggae album full of catchy hooks and choruses.

In October of 2020, popular social media influencer doggface208 uploaded a video of himself skateboarding while jamming out to the studio version of  "Good at Gettin' By". The video quickly went viral and bounced off quite a bit of airplay on alternative radio as a result. The track’s popularity made it an obvious starting point to introduce the 2021 acoustic album Casual Encounters, released on LAW Records.

“Highway Robbery” will be available on April 29, 2022, on all major streaming platforms.
