Reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration officially kicks off their “Live From Paradise!” tour tonight in Albuquerque, NM, bringing the aloha spirit and good vibes across the country this spring and summer. The 43-date outing, featuring special guests Pepper, Fortunate Youth and Katastro, marks the group’s largest tour to date since their formation nearly 15 years ago.

The upcoming shows will feature a mix of hits and rarities off Iration’s six studio albums, including their most recent self-titled release from 2018 (Three Prong Records). Lead vocalist and guitarist Micah Pueschel described the Iration album as “extremely eclectic.” 

In anticipation of the “Live From Paradise!” launch, the band dropped a new music video last week for the Iration track “Stay The Course,” which digs into the band’s personal archives to depict their career evolution and growth. “‘Stay The Course’ is a song about perseverance and believing in yourself even when you feel down or alone,” shares Iration. “It’s about finding the greatness that you possess inside of you and nurturing it. The video is a time piece for the band and tells the story of our journey from garage band to where we are now.” 


The Hawaiian-bred, California-based band consists of Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor (bass), Joe Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboards), Micah Brown (guitar/vocals), plus touring member Drake Peterson (trumpet).
