The Expendables to “Prove it” May 11

Santa Cruz, CA based rock band The Expendables are set to release its highly anticipated, fifth full-length album Prove It, produced by Paul Leary and El Hefe, on May 11, 2010.

The album features 17 brand new original tracks and has guest appearances by G. Love, as well as various members of Slightly Stoopid, to name a few.

Of the new album the band shares, “As producers, Leary and El Hefe brought a vibe to the studio as only two punk rock guitar legends could. As musicians who really care about the music, we all connected and feel like we are bringing something new to the table, while still staying true to the sounds that make us who we are.”

Exposed: Shrub

Shrub – We Wanna Smoke

Right Click the link above & Save Target As

The Mid-west has long been a hotbed for successful Rap artists, but Shrub’s fusion of Rap, Reggae, and Rock brings a whole new flavor to the scene. Shrub’s debut EP, Senorita, is quickly setting this Columbus, Ohio artist apart from the pack. From the ganja-induced, club-anthem “We Wanna Smoke”; to the dancehall banger “Come And Get It”; to a more somber side on “Cherries”, Shrub has tapped into a unique and raw sound all his own.

Not to mention the sick album artwork by none other than Opie Ortiz (from the Long Beach Dub Allstars and also a well-known Sublime artist/friend). The band is also currently working with Reggae/Dub super-producer, Dubmatix.

To find out more information about Shrub, CLICK HERE to check out the band’s MySpace page.
