Matisyahu: _Shattered _ Before the Light
As previously reported, Matisyahu will hit the road on October 18 for an extended tour scheduled to begin at Milwaukees The Eagles Club. The singer has now also confirmed that he will release an EP of new material to coincide with his upcoming run of shows.
Shattered will feature four tracks culled from his new full-length album, Light, which is tentatively scheduled in hit stores in early 2009. Produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor, Sublime), Shattered boasts appearances by the noted reggae rhythm section Sly & Robbie, as well as reggae heir Stephen McGregor, Glitch Mobs Ooah and members of Fishbone. Matisyahus current touring band also features a number of familiar faces, including longtime guitarist Aaron Dugan, former Addison Groove Project keyboardist Rob Marscher, drummer Skoota Warner, percussionist Daniel Sadownick and bassist Jason Fraticelli.
