Austin-based epic rock-reggae band Subrosa Union, described as “more and more addicting after each and every listen” by staffers at Waterloo Records, last week released its new single, its take on Bob Marley’s “Is This Love?”, and will tour selected venues across Texas this month and next opening for Slightly Stoopid. The band, which has built a growing fan base in Texas, California and Colorado, released the single on April 20, in the spirit of 420 and the love and support surrounding Marley and his music. It’s available for listening and downloading at http://beta.projectrodney.com/subrosaunion. Subrosa Union will tour in April with The Dirty Heads and New Politics and with Slightly Stoopid and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk. In between, the
band will perform at the first Neon Desert Music Festival in El Paso featuring The Omar Rodriquez-Lopez Group (Mars Volta), Los Amigos Invisibles, Girl in a Coma and more. The band — co-founders Michael Anaya (lead guitar/lead vocals), Chris Paulos (bass) and Paul Valenzuela (drums) joined by new member Marc Martel (guitar/vocals) — has been touring non-stop since the 2010 release of its critically acclaimed ONE NIGHT STAND, produced by drummer Mike Cosgrove of Alien Ant Farm, which captures Subrosa Union’s bass grooves, solid beats, driven guitars and catchy lyrics so apparent on the first single, “6th St. Beauty Queen.” Subrosa Union showcased at SXSW 2009 and 2010, toured for the troops for 64 days, has shared stages with 311, Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Pepper, The Wailers and many more, and proves to be one of the fastest-growing independent acts to rise out of Texas because of its high-energy live performances. Upcoming Subrosa Union shows include: April 28, Red 7, Austin, w/ The Dirty Heads April 29, House of Rock, Neon Desert Music Festival pre-show, El Paso April 30, Neon Desert Music Festival, El Paso May 5, Stubb’s, Austin, w/ Rebelution May 13, Palladium Ballroom, Dallas, w/ Slightly Stoopid & Dumstaphunk May 14, Verizon Theatre, Houston, w/ Slightly Stoopid & Dumstaphunk For more information, visit www.subrosaunion.com.
