(Cambridgeshire, 2022) Legendary chart-topping ska & reggae act The Dualers have announced their new, upcoming album Voices From the Sun. The 14-track project is a non-stop feel-good ride that perfectly encapsulates the party and dance spirit that has adorned fans of the nine-piece headed by Tyber Cranstoun, the world over!
The announcement comes off the back of their acclaimed Road to Wembley UK Tour. A seven-point journey across England and Ireland culminating in the prestigious Wembley stage, the tour has proved that appetite for The Dualers and their infectious positivity has never been higher.
Voices From the Sun follows The Dualers’ previous album Palm Trees & 80 Degrees. A smash hit, the album swept the charts reaching no. 11 in the UK album charts, no. 2 in the independent chart, and no. 1 in the reggae chart – cementing the band’s reputation as the nation’s ‘finest Ska & Reggae band’.
A nationwide tour, new album, and further tours across venues and festivals, may seem a lot for an artist but for The Dualers it is only the tip of the iceberg. To date The Dualers reached 21 with their singles Kiss on the Lips in the UK charts with no official backing, only the support of their fans. This support also saw them featured on Radio 2 with their single Only When You’re Around, and huge praise for their single Truly Madly Deeply (as featured in the Hollywood blockbuster Fool’s Gold/BBC’s Death in Paradise).
The band’s personal journey is perhaps even more inspiring. Born to the man who quite literally brought Ska to the UK, brothers Tyber and Si Cranstoun formed the Jamaican Rhythm and Blues band with literal music history running through their veins. The pair’s humble beginnings as buskers quickly blossomed into a viral sensation with videos of the brothers causing impromptu dance street parties quickly amassing over 7 million YouTube views.
Voices From The Sun marks an extraordinary personal and professional journey for the band while retaining the impossibly optimistic nature that has made them such a hit.
