Fresh off the release of their music video for “Right Here Right Now” celebrating essential frontline workers and first responders, reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration has dropped their optimistic new single “Move Forward” from their forthcoming seventh full- length studio album Coastin’, due out July 10th via the band’s own Three Prong Records. Coastin’ is available for pre-order now on all digital platforms, vinyl and CD. Each pre-order includes instant downloads of “More Forward” and summer anthem “Right Here Right Now” featuring Eric Rachmany from Rebelution and Stick Figure as well as the band’s 2019 single “Chill Out”. Various album and bundle packages are also available at the official Iration webstore HERE.
“’Move Forward’ is a song about growing up,” shares lead vocalist/guitarist Micah Pueschel. “It’s about overcoming struggles in life and coming out on the other side more complete and more in touch with yourself and your surroundings.”
Iration (Micah Pueschel [lead vocals/guitar], Adam Taylor [bass], Joe Dickens [drums], Cayson Peterson [keyboard/synth], Micah Brown [guitar/vocals]) shines like never before on Coastin’ as they take listeners on a timeless 13-song musical journey inspired by real life experiences. Produced and co-written by David Manzoor (Lupe Fiasco, Cam, Method Man) and engineered by Will Brierre (Imagine Dragons, Chris Isaak), along with an impressive roster of song and mix engineers, Coastin’ showcases the Hawaiian-bred, California-based band’s distinct hybrid style of music blending rock and reggae with elements of pop and newly incorporated R&B, funk and jazz sounds, set against meaningful and personal lyrics that push positivity, good vibes and good feelings into the world. The upcoming collection also features guest appearances from Common Kings and Eli-Mac.
Since the beginning of April, Iration has been hosting a weekly chat called “The Uplifter” to bring good vibes and humor to fans. Initially started as a livestream, The Uplifter, which features the entire band and some special guests discussing current events, Coastin’, band origins and more, is now exclusively a podcast available on all major streaming platforms including Apple Podcasts and Spotify with new episodes available every Thursday. Today’s new episode is focused on “Move Forward” along with discussing the band member’s struggles as musicians as well as their “worst concert ever” moments – PRESS HERE to listen/subscribe.
