Plus, we love the Hot Rain band, so vibes are soaring at the moment. We look forward to seeing you this summer!”
IRATION released their all-acoustic album DOUBLE UP digitally December 2, 2016 via their own Three Prong Records. The 10-track album features a mix of the band’s hits from their previous releases, including “Reelin” off their most recent full-length Hotting Up (2015); “One Way Track” and “Back Around” from 2013’s Automatic; “Summer Nights” from their Fresh Grounds EP (2011); and “Time Bomb” and “Falling” off 2010’s Time Bomb. Both Hotting Up and Automatic peaked at #1 on Billboard‘s Reggae Albums Chart with Time Bomb reaching #2 on the chart. IRATION is currently in the studio working on new music.
