Following announcements on several festivals around Australia including The Gulf Country Frontier Days Festival in Burketown QLD in August, Island Vibes Festival on Stradbroke Island in October, and The Pleasure Garden in St Kilda in December; Kiwi roots reggae ambassadors KATCHAFIRE have announced 2018 Legacy Love Today Tour dates around the country to celebrate the release of their 5th studio album ‘Legacy’ and the success of several singles lifted from the album including ‘Love Today’.

It was no surprise when KATCHAFIRE dropped their new ‘Legacy’ album on June 1st that it hit No.1 on Reggae Album Charts within hours of release in NZ & USA and No.3 on the Billboard Reggae charts, but the album has also gone on to have an impact on mainstream/pop iTunes charts around the world including: #1 in New Zealand, #8 in Poland, #24 in Australia, #56 in Lichtenstein and Ivory Coast, #57 in USA, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Maldives, Myanmar, Palestine and Libyan Arab Jamahiriya!

The band popped into Hawaii for a surprise performance at the Island Music Awards on Saturday 9th June, where they were also finalist nominees for Group Of The Year, ahead of their 33 date tour of mainland USA which kicked off on June 13.

“On Legacy, Katchafire tapped into their expansive musical network of family and friends to create an album that is both classic and progressive.” ThePier.org (USA)

The ‘LEGACY’ album is exciting and fresh with messages of love, hope, togetherness, and family; with the 12 songs on this album being recorded in numerous studios around the world from New Zealand and Australia to LA and Hawaii to Jamaica, featuring collaborations with some of reggae’s finest; with the cover art featuring Hawaiian artist Herb Kane’s “War Canoes Of The New Zealand Maori”.

Recent line-up changes have added new fuel to the ‘Fire and the first three singles from the ‘LEGACY’ album – ‘Addicted’, ‘Way Beyond’ & ‘Love Today’ – have been picking up airplay on roots reggae radio and added to playlists around the world with ‘Love Today’ hitting the Top 20 on the Global Reggae Chart.

There is no stopping the ‘Fire!!
