On August 12th, Washington DC natives, SOJA will release their second album off ATO Records with Amid The Noise And Haste. The group has already released 2 new songs with “Your Song” feat Damian Marley & “I Believe” feat Michael Franti & Nahko…
When you pre-order the album, fans will receive advanced copies of “Your Song” and “I Believe”. In addition to Damian Marley, Michael Franti & Nahko, the album also includes guest appearances by Anuhea & J Boog with the song “Easier”, Alfred The MC on “Promises And Pills” as well as SOJA’s own Trevor Young on the track “Shadow”. Nahko makes a second guest appearance to close out the album with the song “Lucid Dreams”.
Amid The Noise And Haste was produced by multiple GRAMMY award winning Jamaican producer Supa Dups (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Rihanna, John Legend, Dirty Heads) and is the first full-length album he has chosen to take on in his career. The cover-art to the 13 track album, which can be viewed below, was designed by the British artist Steven Wilson and was carved by original wood pieces.
“I want to speak for people who don’t have microphones,” Jacob Hemphill says. “Our goal as a band is to stick up for the human race. We see the world and we try to make it better in the limited time we have here.”
The message is being received as SOJA has sold more than 250,000 albums, headlined shows in over 20 countries around the world, generated over 3.3 million Facebook fans, and 183+ million YouTube views.
SOJA Will continue to speak for the people, taking their show on the road with
Michael Franti & Spearhead, Brett Dennen and Trevor Hall on the Soulshine Summer Tour. The tour kicks off on June 19th in Southern California and will make its way across North America, ending in Nashville, TN at the Woods at Fontanel on August 2nd.
Each afternoon on the Soulshine tour will begin with a mass yoga and acoustic music jam with Michael Franti & Friends, led by some of today’s most inspiring teachers from across North America, including Canada’s Ryan Leier, an ambassador of yoga to communities around the world.
