The Aggrolites
The Aggrolites

The Aggrolites sound and musical influence can best be summed up as Late 60's Jamaican Reggae (Skinhead Reggae), recognizable to reggae fans into Upsetters, Hot Rod Allstars, Jackie Mittoo, Chrystalites. Studio One reggae bands.
Their music is heavily mixed with American soul and funk and influenced by the Meters, James Brown and Wilson Picket.

Prior to this debut release on Hellcat, the band independently released their debut CD and LP titled Dirty Reggae, on their northern California affiliated AXE record label. A punk/reggae classic. The title cut apeared on the Give Em The Boot IV CD and received support on L.A.s Indy 103.1fm radio station.

They have shared the stage live with Hepcat & Rancid among dozens of others from the punk, ska, funk and reggae scene, and have received overwhelming response to their powerful, funky, energetic show. The crowd call and response factor is always prominent at their concerts. They are infectious and have the dance floor rocking.

This is one awesome band. Great live shows. I can't wait for this album. I must say that the Rancid/Aggrolites show at the Echo last month was definitely the best show I'll ever see. Hellcat Records did good in signing this band.
