After gaining a mountain of recognition for their debut album, Guam’s For Peace Band is finally giving fans a taste of their sophomore full-length LP Always Love by releasing the title track ahead of time! Teaming up with Rootfire Cooperative has given the band fresh enthusiasm since their 2012 origin, which is something to say, considering that they've already racked up several awards, including Best Original Song and Best Reggae Band at the 2014 and 2015 Island Music Awards, respectively. With an American tour underway, For Peace Band is ready to unleash their latest music to the masses this July 27th.
“Never give up, never evil” seems to be the band’s mantra.
That said, the title track is now available on all major digital outlets! “Always Love” is about staying true to yourself, persevering against adversity, keeping calm under pressure and most of all, lifting others up as you go. With a downtempo beat and smooth guitar solos, the track vibes you with a walking bass, almost electrically up and down your spinal column, to give listeners a feeling of serenity. No matter what you’re up against, “keep your cool” and the universe will provide answers. “Jah Jah guide the way to my destiny,” chants FPB, so live your life “like a tree that is planted and free.” It all boils down to loving what you do. For what’s the point of doing anything if it doesn't make you happy? Live your life to the fullest, for you only get one. “Never give up, never evil” seems to be the band’s mantra. For Peace Band may be making music to calm your nerves when the going gets rough, but the message behind the music is equally as important. Want to hear it for yourself? Top Shelf Reggae is honored to host the premiere:
