New single from the band’s forthcoming album, Stand Up & Bitch.
Sometimes the moment of clarity becomes something continual, rather than an instant. For Denver rock reggae/ska outfit, P-Nuckle, that evolution is about to be more apparent than ever. A matured sense of lucidity, coupled with the experience of a musical career spanning over a decade, has the group poised and ready for national ascent. Known for a dedicated passion for delivering messages of hope and triumph over adversity has allowed the band to cultivate an extremely loyal fanbase; one that is sure to grow with the release of the band’s fourth studio album, Stand Up and Bitch.

Progressive reggae band John Brown’s Body will make its UK and New Zealand live debuts this fall, first with a 16-show run supporting label mates Easy Star All-Stars in the UK in October, then with a lengthy NZ tour in November. The New Zealand tour is part of an exciting foreign exchange: from September 10 – 25th, new Easy Star label mates The Black Seeds, one of New Zealand’s top acts, will make their North American debut opening for JBB at 11 shows across the U.S. Then, The Black Seeds return the favor in November by bringing JBB to their home country to open for them.
Coinciding with these tours will be an exclusive Tour Blog here at The Pier, with both JBB and The Black Seeds contributing and providing behind the scenes access to both US and NZ tours.
Also don’t forget to check out The Pier Compilation Volume 1, featuring new tracks from both bands!
We survived! We made it through blistering heat, 2 trips to the emergency room, mosquitos, lightning storms, flat tires, sleepless nights, long drives, dry counties on sundays and Canada border crossing (and this was just the fun stuff). We’d really like to thank all of our sponsors for making our trip possible:

Hailing from the UK, Natty has already graced the stages of Glastonbury, Bestival, End of the Road and O2 Festivals. The reggae roots performer just dropped his debut album Man Like I. It’s an understatement to say The Pier was immediately impressed.
Check out the video below for his first single, July and CLICK HERE to go take a look at his MySpace to hear some more tunes. This is some good stuff.
From The B Foundation:
We are stoked to let everyone know that we signed a deal with Fuel Records/EMI and they will be releasing Souvenirs Novelties and Party Tricks. Thanks to all of you that picked up our album while it was out for three weeks in July! We kicked off at number two on the reggae charts on iTunes!! We’re hoping for the same kick off when Fuel releases it on Sept 1st!
It’s going to be available on iTunes and through our merch store at bigcartel.com. September is only a digital release and by the end of the year they will be available in retail stores. We still have some first pressings that are available at CDbaby.com, but there are only a few hundred left so if you are one of the fans who wants the CD without the label imprints than go get it now! We are stoked to welcome Fuel and EMI to our family and we hope you will pick up the album on Sept 1. If you already did we are going to need all new reviews for iTunes. Much respect to The Pier!!!
