Long Beach Dub Allstars release 2 new songs “Holding Out” and “Steady Customer” #NewMusic
Legendary Long Beach reggae outfit Long Beach Dub Allstars have reunited and released their first taste of new music in almost 2 decades, with two new tracks “Holding Out” and “Steady Customer” . This is the first of new music from Long Beach Dub Allstars since the release of 2001’s “Wonders of the World“.
Long Beach Dub Allstars was formed after Sublime disbanded following the death of singer Bradley Nowell in 1996. Long Beach Dub Allstars released two now-classic albums “Right Back” (1999) and “Wonders of the World” (2001), before they went their separate ways in 2002. Long Beach Dub Allstars’ unique mixture of danceable reggae beats and fiery punk-rock energy had a lasting impact on the scene, with both albums becoming highly influential to the groups that came after them.
Long Beach Dub Allstars reunited in 2013 with “Ras MG” Goodman on drums, Michael “Miguel” Happoldt on guitar, Opie Ortiz on vocals, Jack Maness on keys, Tim Wu on horns, Edwin Kampwirth on bass, and Roger Rivas of The Aggrolites on organ.
Long Beach Dub Allstars released their first Havoc TV video “Soundproof” which LBDA discusses their reunion and history.
