Hear “Free Time” Now
Just weeks away from the release of their highly-anticipated third album Reggae Hit L.A., The Aggrolites offer fans a chance to listen to their first single “Free Time” on www.myspace.com/theaggrolites. This soulful reggae track tells the story of longing for home and loved ones while out on the road and features a heart-wrenching twist in the end. Inspired by the challenges of spreading “dirty reggae” across the globe, all 15 tracks on Reggae Hit L.A. were written and produced by The Aggrolites.
Jo-Ann Green of All Music Guide says “Reggae Hit L.A. swaggers right off the grooves, and (is) so full of fun that it's a party in itself.”
The album hits stores and House of Blues Sunset Strip on June 5.
