Press Release / Show Announcement
New York-based family band, New Kingston continues to be one of the most prolific bands in the U.S. reggae community and the announcement of their Rock2Roots project continues their upward trajectory. “Fyah Nuh Hot Like You” will be the first single from the Rock2Roots series, which will showcase the many styles New Kingston brings both on the road and in the studio. The single debuted in March on Easy Star Records.
Instead of focusing on a full-length album to follow up their last studio album, 2017’s A Kingston Story: Come From Far, New Kingston has instead put its energy into a series of singles to be released throughout 2019 for their rock2roots project. This will encompass the band’s approach to roots reggae fused with their many other influences, including rock, R&B, dancehall, and hip hop. Tahir Panton states, “The rock2roots series will showcase the wide range of our musical styles that we’ve been crafting for over a decade.” The diversity and quality of the band’s musical output thus far have made press take notice, including tastemakers such as Yahoo! Music, Paste Magazine, KCRW, KEXP, The Jamaica Observer, Sirius XM, and many more.
New Kingston embark on their Spring 2019 tour in support of “Fyah Nuh Hot Like You” and kicked things off on the West Coast! You can check out New Kingston’s upcoming tour dates here and stay tuned for more touring throughout the Rock2Roots series in 2019.
