JBB will be in the house! Plus lots of giveaways! AMPLIFY, the sixth studio album from progressive reggae band John Brown’s Body, is an explosive release, featuring 12 tracks of drum & bass-heavy, dub-inflected electro-grooves that exemplify JBB’s sound. AMPLIFY has a forward-thinking, fearless approach to tempos, beats and feel that expands the genre of reggae as a whole. JBB went through tumultuous times following the release of their last album on Easy Star, including the death of bassist Scott Palmerand an overhaul of the band’s line up. Emerging out of these changes, the new unit is an astonishingly focused and more experimental outfit ready to rock their fans like never before.
