SOJA Announce New Album ‘Poetry in Motion’ out October 27 on ATO Records

SOJA, the internationally acclaimed GRAMMY-nominated eight-piece from Washington D.C., will release its new album Poetry in Motion on October 27th via ATO Records. SOJA will host special album release shows at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on October 26th, D.C.’s Anthem on December 29th and will headline 5,000+ capacity arenas across Brasil. Tickets are on-sale Friday.

SOJA’s core sound – an uplifting meld of reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, Latin, rock, and hip-hop – is as tight and compelling as it’s ever been in the group’s 20 year history, but now the group digs deeper on its message of finding peace and understanding in the world caught in tribulation. For the band, having fun and social awareness can, and should, co-exist. “More” is a Bob Marley-influenced manifesto to fight greed by being content with what you got and “Bad News” looks for hope in tragic headlines.

Lead singer Jacob Hemphill explains, “Poetry in Motion is about us, the human race. We’re beautiful. We’re the caretakers of this earth and everything that lives here, calls it home. But something is wrong. Something in us is lost. That’s the focus – how to get back to the beauty and away from… well, this.
