"...drum-and-bass roots with ample rocking, soulful lyrics, and a heavy-duty infectious energy." -Santa Barbara Independent


With influences stretching through multiple genres, Iration's style defies categorization. They have called their sound 'New Roots', taking roots reggae and giving it a modern twist. Elements of dub stand at the forefront of Iration's sound. Joe and Adam's rhythmic drum and bass are mixed with Micah and Catlin's rocking guitars and Cayson's distinctive keyboard/synth. The music is dubbed by King to create Iration's signature sound. Three lead vocalists in Catlin, Kai and Micah give each song its own unique feeling.

The band looks forward to spreading its sound as far out as possible and will continue to make original music. Iration's first full length release No Time for Rest was recorded at Castaway 7 studios with engineer/co-producer JP Hesser and was mastered at the legendary Lion and Fox Studios by Mike Caplan (Groundation, SOJA). The album includes guest appearances by Mikey Dread and Dub Nasty from the Pepper Posse.

Iration has performed with acts such as Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, Steel Pulse, Don Carlos, The Expendables, The English Beat, Yellowman, Mikey Dread, Katchafire, Natural Vibrations and Ooklah the Moc.
