Matisyahu Live at Stubb's Vol. II Set for 2/1/2011 Release

Grammy-nominated artist Matisyahu, whose transcendent live shows are widely celebrated for moving masses around the globe, has once again captured the magic that he creates on stage with his new live album and DVD. Live at Stubb's Vol. II, set for release on February 1, 2011, is the second installment in his signature Live at Stubb's series.

 

Live at Stubb's Vol. II will be available for sale in stores and online in three formats: CD, DVD with documentary footage and a Deluxe Edition, available for pre-order today, December 1st, via www.matisyahuworld.com.  Additionally, an exclusive trailer can be viewed now on the site offering a sneak peak at the incredible documentary and live footage from the DVD.

 

The Deluxe Edition will include the CD/DVD and a 40-page booklet filled with exclusive photos that chronicle the recording of Live at Stubb's Vol. II and other amazing performances from the past three years. The Deluxe Edition will also feature an exclusive letter from Matisyahu that shares his reflections on his career and his return to Stubb's, as well as never-before-seen notes and song lyrics.

 

When Matisyahu's groundbreaking original live album, Live at Stubb's, was released in 2005, it launched him onto Top 40 radio with his now most-recognizable anthem "King Without A Crown." He had made an indelible mark on the musical consciousness of the U.S., but this proved to be only the beginning. Live at Stubb's reached #1 on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart and has sold nearly 700,000 copies to date. Matisyahu has gone on to sell a total of 2 million albums to date worldwide.

 

Now with three critically acclaimed studio albums to his name, Matisyahu decided to return to where it all began. On a hot August night in Austin, TX, this past summer, Matisyahu took the stage at the famed music venue Stubb's with his band, Brooklyn's The Dub Trio, for an unforgettable live music experience. Showcasing his impressive artistic evolution, Matisyahu unveiled brand new song "Open The Gates" and performed songs that span his lauded catalogue, including selections from 2004's Shake Off The Dust...Arise, 2005's Live at Stubb's, 2006's Youth and 2009's Light, which debuted inside the Billboard Top 20. Inviting the intimate crowd to join him in documenting the extraordinary energy in the room that evening, he and his audience created the musical time capsule that is now Live at Stubb's Vol. II.

 

These songs are infused with a vibrancy that can only be created during a Matisyahu performance, beautifully displaying the one-of-a -kind voice and distinctive sound that has brought him to the forefront of today's music landscape.With a re-discovered love for roots reggae and improvisation at the core of his live show, Matisyahu brilliantly re-vamped the vocal and instrumental arrangements, elevating each song to new heights. From album opener "Kodesh"to tracks such as"Mist Rising," "Youth", "Darkness Into Light" and "One Day", Live at Stubb's Vol. II is araw and inspiring musical journey that is sure to become a treasured part of Matisyahu's acclaimed catalogue.

 

With prolific lyrics, anthemic choruses and his signature fusion of reggae, pop-rock, hip-hop, ska-inflected new wave and acoustic folk, Matisyahu has broken boundaries through his music and has unified millions of fans with his music and message of peace, hope and understanding. Since recording Live at Stubb's on February 19, 2005, Matisyahuhas gone on to become one of the most beloved and pioneering artists in music today with Stubb's holding a special meaning for him and his fans.

 

Matisyahu kicked off his fifth annual Festival of Light this week in Brooklyn. The series of shows, historically 8 shows in NYC and Brooklyn around Hanukkah, will expand to additional northeast U.S. cities this year for the first time due to increasing demand from his fans. Matisyahu will perform four nights in Brooklyn before heading to AlbanyBoston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Portland, ME.
