Dickens (Drums), Joseph King (Engineer), Cayson Peterson (Keyboard/Synth),
Micah Pueschel (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Adam Taylor (Bass), and Micah Brown

Iration after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, CA. Micah Brown officially joined
the group in 2014 after touring extensively with the band. They have released
three full-length albums, Automatic (2013), Time Bomb (2010) and No
Time for Rest (2007), as well as three EPs, Fresh Grounds (2011), Sample

remains within the Top 20 on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart to this day. Their
third full-length album Automatic, the band’s most recent work which
debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, is described as forging a truly unique
listening experience by crossing genre boundaries, fusing reggae with fresh pop
and rock influences. Both albums contain tracks that have reached the #1
position on several alternative radio stations.
May 2015, Iration debuted their newest single "Reelin" via radio,
gaining spins on stations nationwide from San Diego, CA to Wilmington, NC. The
song was immediately added at several stations and continues to gain momentum
on the alternative radio chart - also receiving spins at Los Angeles' KROQ and
Tucson's KFMA. Iration's recently recorded Hotting Up LP is due out for
release late summer 2015 and marks the first release since Micah Brown's
addition, all of whose talents were tapped for these recordings.
The group has been touring nationally since 2008, performing at several high
profile festivals including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Hangout, Big Guava,
Wakarusa, Sunset Strip Music Festival and a slew of others. They have headlined
several successful national tours with multiple sold-out shows throughout the
country including: Orange County's Pacific Amphitheater, Sodo at Showbox in Seattle,
Denver's Ogden Theater, Jannus Live in St Petersburg,among many others. In May
2015, Iration co-headlined Southern California's first annual Blaze N Glory
Festival at the San Manual Amphitheater grounds with Slightly Stoopid and
Rebelution; Method Man, Redman, Body Count, Pepper, Collie Buddz and several
others also performed. These Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading
their original sound and Aloha spirit all the while never forgetting to get a
surf in when possible.
