New LP ReEvolve Set For Friday, May 19 Release; PreOrders Begin on 4.20
9 Mile Roots' new video is a glimpse into the buzz of the Ocean City, MD summertime, as the band drifts into town for a show, soaking up the scene before taking to the stage to provide the live soundtrack for the biggest parties on the beach. This track brings a hard-rocking side to the horn-rich reggae sound that 9 Mile Roots fans love.
Bassist Josh Behun felt it was natural to make this video about their memorable tour stops in Ocean City. We filmed the "Drifting" video in and around Seacrets in Ocean City, Maryland. It's one of our absolute favorite places to play. Daytime chillin' on the beach turns to hopping parties by night! And we're here in the middle of it all- leading the parade and just drifting along."
9 Mile Roots will release their new LP ReEvolve independently on Friday, May 19, 2017. It will be the third full-length album released by the Baltimore, MD-based rockers. Pre-orders will launch on 4/20; all iTunes pre-orders will receive an instant download of "Drifting".
While 9 Mile Roots' music often gets neatly put in the rock-reggae category, the dynamic eight-member band serves up their music with equal doses of bouncy hip-hop flow and definitive rock edge. Never content to write and record the same types of sounds and songs, the band is confident that fans will appreciate the evolution of their sound on this release.
For those that appreciate cerebral, poetically driven lyrics paired with rich layers of guitars and horns, 9 Mile Roots delivers strongly with their unique blend of music, which they dub Suburban Roots Reggae. ReEvolve was a long time in the making, because as 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."
