9 Mile Roots have released ReEvolve, their new full-length album. It is surprisingly their first release since their 2013 debut Lime. Since they released that EP, it's been a continual stream of live shows and long hours spent writing and putting together new songs. It's not that they've been stagnant all this time; they simply took their time writing and making sure each song was a representation of their development during the last few years.
Fusing a new rock edge with hip-hop flow, built around their strong reggae foundation, ReEvolve aims to take the grand sounds you hear at a 9 Mile Roots live show and deliver it properly in recorded album format. This is an album that deserves to be listened to with the volume properly cranked up.
ReEvolve was a long time in the making, because as bassist Josh Behun puts it, "We are always evolving, reinventing ourselves, both as a band and as people. We don't rush anything when it comes to making music, we only set out to make the songs that we really feel shine the light on who we are at a given time. We feel that ReEvolve is a really good reflection of who we are right now." Listen to the album below.
