Pepper New Album ‘Local Motion’ Out Now With Tastemaker LAW Records
July Tour Dates Kick off on the 11th!!
(Los Angeles, CA) – Pepper’s Local Motion, out now via LAW Records, has impressively debuted on the Billboard Charts at #1 Reggae Album, #11 Independent Album, #24 Digital Album, & #61 Top Album Sales!!
Local Motion is Pepper’s 8th full length studio album, out on the band’s tastemaker imprint LAW Records. Local Motion pays tribute to the many days and weeks they spend on the road touring, and the relationships forged both with their fans and the music community alike. Reflecting back on the new album, Pepper comments, “We are f*#%king pumped and it’s contagious so get ready!!!!!” Exclusive DTC bundles of the new album, vinyl, and CD’s of Local Motion are available here (https://www.pepperlive.com/)!
Standouts include the lead single “Warning” (Ft. Stick Figure) which has been hailed by industry magazine Billboard as this summer’s sound. Another album high light, “Brand New Day” reminds the listener that our days are what we make of them. Accompanied by a video release, “Brand New Day” features comedian Alex Farnham who shows how a series of unfortunate events can turn any disaster into a beautiful day. Watch the new video here: https://youtu.be/RbJQmnQ8brM. And “Candy” is a sweetly dark love song about wanting something so sweet but knowing that the temptation might not be worth it in the end.
The So. Cal based trio is comprised of Kaleo Wassman (Vocals, Guitar), Bret Bollinger (Bass, Vocals), and Yesod Williams (Drums, Vocals). For 20+ years they have been touring and producing records, and with their dedicated fan base support, Pepper has expanded their brand to include wine (https://www.winebosslounge.com/pepper-wine-order-here) and a tasty cannabis strand “Hawaiian Pepper”( https://bit.ly/2XN9KzK). They are one of the few bands that can claim all three original bandmates since their formation in 1997. Pepper grew a cult following when they were propelled into the forefront of the punk, rock, and reggae scenes while touring with the iconic Van’s Warped Tour. Recently they performed a killer set at the California Roots Festival where they sold-out of their limited edition Local Motion vinyl record only sold during their meet and greet. Today they continue to headline major festivals and sold-out shows across the country.
Currently, they are on tour with Iration through this summer. They hit the road on July 11th in Oklahoma City, where they will continue to amazing and dazzle fans with their comedic banter and fun loving performance. Pepper will bring their full energy and So. Cal. vibes to the stage, performing hits alongside new material.
