Matisyahu Releases New EP RELEASE THE BOUND12:27 AM
"Music for Matisyahu is not an escape from reality, but rather a true emotional expression of his life. It is a way to accept reality as it truly is."Grammy-nominated Reggae artist Matisyahu has officially released his new EP "Release The Bound" via Thirty Tigers.- HipHopDX
"Release The Bound" comes on the heels of Matisyahu's last album Akeda (June, 2014), playing into the same theme of Abraham's final test of commitment by sacrificing his greatest love to God.
Akeda, Matisyahu said, "Outside of my own self therapy I create music for The Bound, people who are stuck or struggling on their journeys. This EP is a narrative of Abraham facing this climatic moment when his whole life is in question and finally the RELEASE as he passes his ultimate test. I hope it brings inspiration to those facing similar questions."When Matisyahu first started touring to packed clubs more than eleven years ago, it was prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record's single "King Without A Crown" reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts.
"King without a Crown" climbed the charts and Matisyahu's follow up record Youth was nominated for a Grammy, but the blessings and curses of mainstream success each took root.
Now, more than a decade and 9 records later, Matisyahu has formed a band that truly gives itself over to the music on par with his lyrical desire to connect to something beyond the self.
Release The Bound has officially released Nov. 18 via Thirty Tigers.
