Iration 2015Reggae-influenced alternative rock band and enthusiastic sports fans will bring together their two passions this week. Tomorrow (9/15), the band will be the featured guest on Callaway Golf’s live online weekly show, “Callaway Live.” They’ll discuss their love for golf–teeing up any chance they get, even when on the road–and also perform tracks from their new album HOTTING UP, out now digitally and in stores October 9 via Three Prong Records/Caroline. The show begins at 6pm PT/9pm ET at

The Hawaiian-bred, Santa Barbara-based group will then head north to San Francisco to perform a special pre-game acoustic concert Saturday (9/19) before the SF Giants take on the Arizona Diamondbacks at AT&T Park.

“We performed last year and had an awesome time so we’re excited that they’ve invited us back again this year,” lead singer/guitarist Micah Pueschel shares. “We’re all big Giants fans. Baseball on the waterfront and new music to share…it’s going to be a good time!”

Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor (bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth), Micah Brown (guitar/vocals) and Joseph King (engineer)–is also announcing that they’ll perform a pre-game show at the San Francisco 49ers football game on January 3, 2016 as well.

Iration - Hotting UpHOTTING UP marks the band’s fourth full-length album and follow-up to 2013’s Automatic which helped propel their career to a new level. For the new music, put together a team of acclaimed collaborators including Grammy Award-nominated producer and co-writer David Manzoor (Lupe Fiasco, R. Kelly, Lloyd), Grammy Award-nominated mixer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Fleetwood Mac) and engineer Will Brierre (Imagine Dragons, Youngblood Hawk, Chris Isaak).

A lyric video for the album’s first single “Reelin” was recently released; check it out now here.

IRATION is also preparing for their national headlining “Hotting Up Tour”–featuring support from The Green on the entire outing and Hours Eastly and The Movement on select dates–kicking off Thursday, October 8 in Nashville and including a stop at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles Saturday, November 14. Also recently announced is Reggae Fest with Iration Saturday, November 21 at the Del Mar Racetrack in Del Mar, CA. The show is 18 and up, and free with paid admission to the races. A full list of tour dates is listed below and here.

IRATION burned up the festival scene this summer, with performances at Outside Lands, Hangout, Riot Fest Denver, SunFest, Big Guava, Reggae on the Block, Blaze N Glory, Cali Roots, GoPro Mountain Games, Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival, The Beach at Mandalay Bay, OC Fair, Texas Showdown, Summer Meltdown, and still to come is Reggae on the Range and Summer Ends Festival. Of their recent Outside Lands performance, wrote “Their upbeat, reggae-rock mixed with their confident, easygoing stage presence makes the band as a whole feel like an old friend. Playing favorites like ‘Summer Nights,’ ‘Back Around’ and the single ‘Reelin’ from their upcoming album, these high-energy Hawaiian rockers know how to work a crowd.” (8/8/15)
