Hawaii-based reggae band has a new album titled Ways & Means and they will be touring throughout the continental United States, starting in October.

In less than a year, The Green has quickly emerged as one of the most exciting new reggae artists from the United States. Both critics and fans quickly took hold of their youth-infused modern roots reggae sound. Their self-titled debut album The Green was named “Best Reggae Album” of 2010 by iTunes and hit Billboard’s 2010 Year-End Reggae Chart by selling over 20,000 copies.

The band is following up with their second album, Ways & Means, set to be released on October 25th on one of the leading reggae labels – Easy Star Records. The label is home to some of the most accomplished and progressive reggae artists, including the Easy Star All-Stars, John Brown’s Body, Cas Haley, The Black Seeds, Ticklah, Tommy T, The Meditations, and more.

The Green consists of singer Caleb Keolanui, singer-guitarist JP Kennedy, singer-keyboardist Ikaika Antone, and singer-guitarist Zion Thompson. The four members of The Green take pride in the pop-burnished roots reggae style they’ve cooked. Four distinct voices, four sharp songwriting talents, masterful musicianship, and monster grooves add up to one exceptional band.
