The new album is the follow up to critically acclaimed Strength To Survive which debuted in the Billboard Top 40. The album cover art was designed by the British artist Steven Wilson and was carved by original wood pieces.

“I want to speak for people who don’t have microphones,” Jacob Hemphill says. “Our goal as a band is to stick up for the human race. We see the world and we try to make it better in the limited time we have here.”

This is the philosophy behind SOJA’s music, a simple statement that has driven the D.C. area band, who blend reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, Latin, rock and hip-hop. Originally formed by a group of friends while still in middle school and has built a massive, dedicated fan base around the world since. In the years following, SOJA has sold more than 250,000 albumsheadlined shows in over 20 countries around the world, generated over 3.3 million Facebook fans, and 183+ million YouTube views. The band has toured with Dave Matthews Band, Incubus, 311 and appeared at major festivals including Bonnaroo, Wakarusa and Hangout where they attract an almost Grateful Dead-like international fan base along the way, with caravans of diehards following them from city to city.
