Exclusive Premiere: Iration Rock ‘Hotting Up’ at Jam In The van


Crave is proud to bring Iration fans an exclusive Jam In The Van performance of the brand new track “Hotting Up” from the band’s new full-length album of the same name. The record hits stores tomorrow (pre-order here), which gives this compact performance of the reggae-laced feelgood jam some perfect-timing placement.

In addition to the highly anticipated new release, Iration just announced details for their fall “Hotting Up Tour” in support of the new album. Hotting Up follows 2013’s Automatic, which propelled the band’s career to a new level, debuting at #1 on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Albums charts, as well as #7 on the iTunes Overall Albums chart, #75 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and #17 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.

Since being founded in Venice, California in 2011, Jam In The Van has featured over 500 artist performances from the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Cody Simpson, Robert Delong, George Clinton, Matisyahu and many more.

For their new album, Iration put together a team of acclaimed collaborators including producer and co-writer David Manzoor (Lupe Fiasco, R. Kelly, Lloyd), Grammy Award-nominated mixer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Fleetwood Mac) and engineer Will Brierre (Imagine Dragons, Youngblood Hawk, Chris Isaak).

The first single “Reelin” premiered on San Diego’s 91X on April 27 and has since been spinning nationwide on various radio stations including Santa Barbara, CA’s KJEE, Honolulu, HI’s KUCD, and Wilmington, NC’s WRMR, among others.
