“We’re incredibly stoked to be going out this summer alongside Atmosphere,” shares Iration lead vocalist/guitarist Micah Pueschel. “They are a group that we have loved and listened to since our first tour. We’ve also got Katastro and The Grouch joining us who are great artists that will make the show a rad and diverse blend of sounds. See you out there!”

“We cannot wait to run around this summer making party with the people,” adds Slug of Atmosphere. “I need to hear the sounds of smiles and feel the sun’s nourishment. Going out on the road with Iration is a blessing. They are pros at making party. We will bathe in the vibes.”

Iration – Micah Pueschel [lead vocals/guitar], Adam Taylor [bass], Joe Dickens [drums], Cayson Peterson [keyboard/synth], Micah Brown [guitar/vocals] – is touring in support of their latest full-length album Coastin’, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart upon its June 2020 release. A record about being thankful for the moments that we have, Coastin’ (Three Prong Records), the band’s seventh full-length studio album, is a 13-song musical journey showcasing Iration’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. Coastin’, declared “truly a melting pot of what this group is capable of” by mxdwn, features the singles “Right Here Right Now,” “Move Forward,” “Coastin’” and “Chill Out” along with guest appearances from Common Kings and Eli-Mac.
