STONE IRIS Release Second Album Of 2013 'Grande National' + Canada/USA Dates
Grande National, the second album release of 2013 for Edmonton, AB's favourite rock reggae quintet Stone Iris is now available and out today, Tuesday, August 27th to follow up their eighth studio recording 'Kicking The Can'. The band is presently on their second USA tour since May in promotion of the release, a 14 track voyage that takes listeners through a revival of blues and rock reggae doused in groove and North American nostalgia.
Vocalist / guitarist El Niven comments:
"Grown with love in Edmonton, Alberta, brewed in Louisville, Kentucky and about to spill out all over North America, Grande National is fourteen ripe tracks of Stone Iris' self proclaimed southern rock from the true north, reggae music from a cold dark place. This is the band's second full length release of 2013, a testament to our commitment to never slowing down and never growing old."
The album is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, CD Baby and all major online retailers.

About: Stone Iris is a brotherhood of like-minded musicians. From humble beginnings in Edmonton, Canada, their fusion of self described Southern Rock from the True North / Reggae Music from a Cold Dark Place has been blazing across Canada and the USA over the years.
With consistent touring, busking, jamming and writing, the undeniable, yet un-classifiable spectacle known as Stone Iris has been persistent in sharing their craft and passion. With a love for performing, their live show is as honest and original, as it is part of who and what they are. Driven by groove, it makes you move.
Much has been in store for Stone Iris in 2013; including extensive touring, two full length albums, the first being their eighth recording 'Kicking The Can' released in March and now to be followed by their ninth release 'Grande National' this coming August.
Releasing their first single 'I Wanna' from 'Kicking The Can' to radio across Canada along with local support by Edmonton's rock authority Sonic 102.9 FM who named the group 'Band of The Month' for March plus premiering their music video 'Taste of Fame' on BlankTV. Stone Iris is hitting the road for their second North American Tour since releasing 'Kicking The Can'.
