Long Beach Shortbus is tearing up the road with an all new album with 18 brand new tracks. The band, featuring members of Sublime & Long Beach Dub Allstars has regrouped, refreshed and are ready for the masses to hear. Eric Wilson’s days as Sublime’s bassist and RAS1′s experience as the lead singer of The Dub Allstars have allowed them to fine tune their sound for the new record.
The new album, “Flying Ship of Fantasy” has taken a year to record under the watchful eye of producers Michael Happoldt and Lewis Richards. It breathes new life and original sounds along with the unmistaken identity of the Long Beach musical tradition.
In February 2004 Shortbus embarked on a sold out tour of Europe, fresh from the studio and eager to play the new material to their die hard fans. While on tour back in the U.S., Warner Brother’s selected RAS1′s song, “Sunny Hours” as the theme song for their new sitcom “Joey” on NBC. This revalation has ignited the band into another song writing frenzy, which will ultimately result in another full length album for next year.
This year has been momentus, with a constant, consistent touring schedule, and thousands of miles and fans under the belt. Shortbus is breaking new ground every tour, delivering thunderous rock sets night after night.
