IRATION


BIO: Iration is an alternative/reggae group of musicians formed in Isla Vista, CA. The group is made up of members Joseph Dickens (drums), Joseph King (Engineer), Cayson Peterson (Keyboard/Synth), Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Vox), Kai Rediske (Vocal/Percussion) and Adam Taylor (Bass). All members met while growing up in Hawaii but formed Iration after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, Ca. They have since released two fulllength albums, Time Bomb (2010) and No Time for Rest (2007), as well as three EP’s, New Roots (2006), Sample This EP (2008) and Fresh Grounds (2011). Time Bomb, which has sold 30K+ copies, hit #1 on the iTunes reggae album chart and remains within the top 20 on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart to this day. Time Bomb included: “Turn Around” (which spent 11 weeks at #1 on San Diego’s 91X, hit #1 on Riverside’s KCXX and on Santa Barbara’s KJEE, was in rotation at Honolulu’s KUCD and Sacramento’s KKDO, as well as being streamed on LA based KROQ), “Time Bomb”(which reached #1 on Santa Barbara’s KJEE), and “Falling”(the single that has moved 70K units since inclusion on Time Bomb and Sample This EP, was an iTunes Discovery Download, also reached #1 on Santa Barbara’s KJEE, and #3 on Honolulu’s KUCD). Their most recent release Fresh Grounds which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart and #114 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The single from their Fresh Grounds EP “Summer Nights” reached #2 on the iTunes reggae singles chart. Combined, Iration has sold hundreds of thousands of singles from their recording catalog. The true essence of Iration is best captured live where they are able to fully demonstrate their original brand of soulful, melody driven reggae, pop and rock. They recently finished recording their 3rd fulllength album Automatic. The album combines elements of reggae, rock and pop to create a truly unique listening experience. Automatic includes production and instrumentation from Lincoln Parish, the guitarist from Kentucky’s band Cage the Elephant, as well as the band’s previous studio, partner JP Hesser. The album also includes guest appearances by keyboardist Rami Jaffee (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters) and Jessy Greene (Foo Fighters, Wilco, Atmosphere) on strings. The first single from Automatic, “Porcupine,” was released September 11, 2012 on the band’s own 3 Prong Records and has since been in rotation on multiple radio stations in Southern California, CO Springs, and AL. Iration’s full length version of Automatic is due out in 2013. Iration have been touring nationally since 2008, have performed at festivals such as: Lollapalooza , Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival; and headlined several successful national headline club tours that have included multiple sold out shows throughout the country. In an effort to begin promoting new music, this winter 2013 Iration will embark on a US western regional headline tour with support from east coast friends Passafire and So Cal’s Pacific Dub. These Hawaiian-raised musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and aloha spirit as far as possible while never forgetting to get a surf in when possible.
