Long Beach Dub Allstars Announce New Album, Release First Single And Prepare for Summer Tour


Reggae-Rock Legends Long Beach Dub Allstars Release New Single “Youth” & Announce New Tour Dates In Support Of Upcoming New Album

Rock-reggae pioneers Long Beach Dub Allstars have set April 17th, 2020 as the release date for their upcoming Cameron Webb (NOFX, Mad Caddies) produced self-titled album “Long Beach Dub Allstars” via Regime Music Group. The album is currently available for pre-order via iTunes and the band is offering instant downloads of the tracks “Tell Me” and “Youth” to fans who purchase the digital edition of the album. The album will also be released in limited edition red and yellow vinyl along with a t-shirt and CD copies online at https://fanlink.to/lbda_preorder.

“We’re excited to launch this self-titled album April 17th, as that date has special significance for me because it’s my dad’s birthday,” commented songwriter and vocalist Opie Ortiz. “With the pre-order for the album, we decided to release the song ‘Youth’, which is a song that was inspired by gun violence today with our youth. The song was built on a progression written by Jack and then the hook was something that my brother Philieano spit years ago and I thought it was amazing, so it just stayed with me. Ed and Devin rallied around the hook and together we wrote a more serious song.”

It’s been 15 years since Long Beach Dub Allstars disbanded, but in 2016 the group continued their path of musical evolution and the legacy they started with Sublime. Now, after this lengthy hiatus, the Long Beach Dub Allstars have returned with their first new music in nearly two decades with a new album “Long Beach Dub Allstars”, which was recorded with producer Cameron Webb (NOFX, Mad Caddies) at his facility Maple Studios in Santa Ana, CA.

Celebrating family, the ones they’ve lost, and each other on their upcoming self-titled album, the Long Beach Dub Allstars have returned with a back to basics approach. The new album is 10 tracks deep and harnesses the feel-good vibrations and the SoCal musical roots of the band’s past, as the band puts everything into one musical melting pot of Reggae, Ska, Dub, Hip Hop, and Punk. The album takes the listener through a range of emotions with good-times anthems like “Tell Me”, while paying tribute to fallen friends and family on “Owen Brothers”, addressing the current level of gun violence that plagues America on “Youth”, or frontman Opie Ortiz reflecting on the passing of his mother on “Dream”. Collected together, the 10 songs add to the musical legacy of the Long Beach Dub Allstars and prove that these musical professors have honed in on their musical chops during their time out of the spotlight.

The tracklisting for Long Beach Dub Allstars upcoming self-titled album is as follows:
1 – Tell Me
2 – Owens Brothers
3 – Youth
4 – Easy
5 – All Gone Crazy
6 – Higher Rank
7 – Breakfast Toast
8 – Dream
9 – Roof and Floor
10 – Make A Name 

Today’s generation of reggae-rock fans may not fully understand how critical this group was to the Reggae-Rock genre following Sublime’s conclusion in 1996. They played at a time when social media was non-existent. There was no Youtube, Facebook, and this was before Myspace or even iTunes. They were the torchbearers of a genre that Sublime introduced and the original ‘Dub Allstars were involved in cultivating that Reggae-Rock sound.
Long Beach Dub Allstars have also announced the tour dates for their upcoming headlining tour in support of the new album kicking off this May.
