In the past three years, John Brown's Body has completed first-ever tours of New Zealand, the UK, and Europe. Their latest album, Amplify, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Reggae Chart.
Quote from drummer Tommy Benedetti:
"We have a bunch of new music in the works... six dubs and an unreleased fan favorite will be coming out this fall. They were mixed in Boston, by former JBB engineer Craig "Dub Fader" Welsch (10 Ft. Ganja Plant, State Radio, The Aggrolites). We've made serious progress on the new full length, we hope to have it out by early 2013. It will be mixed by Matt Saccuccimorano, the man behind our 2002 Spirits All Around Us record. Until then, come celebrate with us on tour!"
