ZIGGY MARLEY TO RELEASE SEVENTH SOLO STUDIO ALBUM, REBELLION RISES MAY 18th, VIA TUFF GONG WORLDWIDE

Los Angeles, CA (Wednesday, April 4th) – Eight-time GRAMMY® award winning musician and reggae icon Ziggy Marley will release his seventh full-length solo studio album, Rebellion Rises on May 18th through Tuff Gong Worldwide.  Fully written, recorded and produced by Marley, this passionate and indelible new collection of music encourages people to stand together in activism through love.

“The rebellion begins in the mind, the melody, and the music,” assures Ziggy. “We are a conduit of that. The rebellion is consciousness. Now the consciousness starts spreading, we become aware and we rise.”

No track embodies this message better than the album’s title track and official first single “Rebellion Rises.”  A manifesto with a chant-like chorus, the song emboldens its listeners to use the power we all have as instruments of positive change around the world.

“The better side of humanity, cannot let the side of humanity that push negativity and hatred be more willing,” Marley explained in a recent interview.  “It cannot happen. It’s a battle of wills. We’ve got to have more will.”

This June, Ziggy will embark on the first leg of his North American tour with stops in a number of west coast markets including Napa, CA, Seattle, WA, Portland, OR and San Francisco, CA.  The tour will then make its way to Europe beginning June 29th where it opens in Legnano, Italy.  Dates are below with more to be announced shortly.  For additional concert and ticket purchase information, please visit ziggymarley.com.

ABOUT ZIGGY MARLEY

An eight-time GRAMMY® winner, EMMY® winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter and producer, Ziggy Marley has released twelve albums to much critical acclaim. Now with his own label Tuff Gong Worldwide, and publishing company Ishti Music, Marley has complete control of his master recordings and publishing. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley.  After eight records with The Melody Makers and three GRAMMY® Awards, with such chart-topping hits as “Look Who’s Dancing,” “Tomorrow People” and “Tumbling Down,” he kicked off a legendary solo career in 2003 with Dragonfly. He impressively garnered the GRAMMY® Award for Best Reggae Album” in 2006 (Love Is My Religion), 2013 (In Concert), 2014 (Fly Rasta) and 2016 for the self-titled Ziggy Marley – which marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart. His first children’s album Family Time received the 2009 GRAMMY® for Best Children’s Album,” and he also took home a Daytime EMMY® Award for I Love You Too,” which shares its title with his 2012 debut children’s book, a multicultural picture collection based on the beloved song, which explores a child’s relationship with parents, nature and the unstoppable force of love. Tapping into his expansive creativity, he created the graphic novel, MARIJUANAMAN and launched Ziggy Marley Organics—an innovator in GMO-free coconut oils and hemp seed snacks. As an extension of his passion for health and sustainable living – Marley published the Ziggy Marley & Family Cookbook in 2016.

ABOUT TUFF GONG WORLDWIDE

Tuff Gong Worldwide was founded in 2006, an off shoot of the original Tuff Gong label, which was founded in 1965 by Bob Marley with the vision of producing, distributing and promoting his music free from the constraints of corporate label politics. In a time, decades before artist-owned record labels were commonplace, the legendary Bob Marley’s vision was characteristically well ahead of its time. Now, nearly a half-century later, his dream is being realized.  Today, Ziggy Marley is a completely independent artist – owning all of his master recordings since 2006 and all of his compositions with Isthi Music – his publishing company. Marley’s robust business goes far beyond music, into book publishing, film and television. For more information, visit http://www.tuffgongworldwide.com.
