“It’s gonna be a summer of madness when we the hit the road with our boys Iration, J Boog, and The Movement for the Sounds Of Summer 2017 tour,” said Slightly Stoopid frontman Miles Doughty. “Smokestacks and sunshine while spending the summer jamming, BBQ-ing, and hanging with friends. Doesn’t get much better than that!”


Nearly two decades into their artistry, Slightly Stoopid continues to progress into new musical territory, defining their signature sound while creating a contagious feel-good vibe that has its own lifestyle and subculture… and it’s been done entirely on their own terms.


Slightly Stoopid is based in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, California, who describe their music as "a fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk." As a band, they have released twelve albums (four live), with their eighth studio album entitled Meanwhile...Back at the Lab on June 29, 2015. The band was originally signed by Bradley Nowell from the band Sublime to his label Skunk Records while still in high school.



“We are very excited to announce that we will be joining our brothers from Slightly Stoopid, J Boog and The Movement this summer on the Sounds of Summer 2017 Tour,” shares IRATION.


IRATION recently released their new single “Fly With Me” (May 19) as special treat for their fans, who put the song at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Songs chart the day of its release. The new song will appear on the band’s upcoming studio album (release date TBA).


The Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based group--Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor (bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth) and Micah Brown (guitar/vocals)—released their all-acoustic album DOUBLE UP digitally December 2, 2016 via their own Three Prong Records. The 10-track album features a mix of the band’s hits from their previous releases, including “Reelin” off their most recent full-length Hotting Up (2015); “One Way Track” and “Back Around” from 2013’s Automatic; “Summer Nights” from their Fresh Grounds EP (2011); and “Time Bomb” and “Falling” off 2010’s Time Bomb. Both Hotting Up and Automatic peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums Chart with Time Bomb reaching #2 on the chart.
