New York City collective MEGATIVE, fresh off a tremendous performance at Montreal Jazz Fest, premiered a new single, “Megative No Fear”, via LargeUp prior to its official release today, leading in to their self-titled, debut album arriving July 27 on Last Gang Records. In addition, MEGATIVE has announced fall tour dates, including Chicago, Toronto, Washington DC and New York (see below). The album is now available for pre-order, which includes a LIMITED EDITION 140gram white vinyl – available here.
Featuring vocalist Tim Fletcher (The Stills) and producer/bassist Gus Van Go (Me, Mom & Morgentaler), with producer/mixer/songwriting tandem Likeminds, aka Jesse Singer and Chris Soper (Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots, Snoop Dog, Kanye West), plus legendary dancehall veteran Screechy Dan (co-founder of Ruff Entry Crew), MEGATIVE’s music is an addictive pulse shot through with the immediacy of the moment.
