Coming off the national headlining “Hotting Up Tour,” which wrapped Nov. 14 in Los Angeles, reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration will hit the road in 2016 with fellow Hawaiian rockers Pepper for a co-headlining West Coast tour that stops in Reno on Feb. 17 at Whitney Peak's Cargo Concert Hall.
Iration is continuing to support its latest album, “Hotting Up." Released digitally Aug. 28 and physically Oct. 9, it is the band’s fourth full-length album and a follow-up to 2013’s "Automatic," which helped propel the band's career to a new level. For the new album, Iration put together a team of collaborators including Grammy Award-nominated producer and co-writer David Manzoor (Lupe Fiasco, R. Kelly, Lloyd), Grammy Award-nominated mixer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Fleetwood Mac) and engineer Will Brierre (Imagine Dragons, Youngblood Hawk, Chris Isaak). The nine-track album features the singles “Reelin” and “Hotting Up."
The Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based group – Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor(bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth), Micah Brown (guitar/vocals) and Joseph King (engineer) – burned up the summer festival scene, performing at Outside Lands, Hangout, Riot Fest Denver, SunFest, Big Guava, Blaze N Glory, Cali Roots and many more.
Iration will kick off the new year with a pregame show at the San Francisco 49ers football game on January 3 at Levi’s Stadium. Tickets for the Hawaiian Punch Winter Tour 2016, also featuring support from New Kingston, can be purchased at www.hawaiianpunchtour.com.
