New Kingston's 'Kingston City' Available for Pre-Order
New Kingston, a fast-rising, New York City-based reggae band, is set to release its third full-length album, KINGSTON CITY, on indie reggae powerhouse label Easy Star Records. The record, which drops January 27, 2015, includes 12 songs and guest appearances by members of Tribal Seeds, Hawaiian singer-songwriter Kimie Miner, Sister Carol, The Wailing Souls, and the late, great reggae legend Sugar Minott.
The record is now available for pre-order in two formats: for digital, fans can get pre-order via iTunes (at http://smarturl.it/stbcpb), which will get them instant downloads of two tracks from the record ("Can't Stop A Man" and "You Are Mine," their duet with Kimie Miner, which has started to get play at Hawaii radio). For the physical CD, you can order via the Easy Star webstore (at http://smarturl.it/sj4k6m), and get the CD along with an exclusive tee shirt featuring the distinctive artwork from the album's cover. The physical pre-order will also give two instant downloads ("Can't Stop A Man" and an exclusive live version of older favorite "On Me"), as well as a full download of the album available on release date. The first 100 CDs ordered will be signed by the band. Easy Star has also made the song "Can't Stop A Man" available for streaming so fans can hear a sneak peek of the record.
Just announced this week, the band is also prepping for three record release shows in early February, in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY, as well as in Boston and Portland, ME. More tour dates are expected to be announced before the release date, as New Kingston continues to build its strong reputation of tireless touring over the past five years.
