Matisyahu Announces New EP "Release The Bound"

Grammy-nominated Reggae artist Matisyahu has officially announced his new EP, Release The Bound,which is set to release on November 18th via Thirty Tigers. This highly anticipated EP features collaborations with electronic artist The Polish Ambassador, and Columbian pop duo Salt Cathedral. Fans can experience the new EP live when Matisyahu kicks off his 'Festival of Light Tour' on December 14th, visiting 10 cities along the way! For more information, please visit:

Release The Bound comes on the heels of Matisyahu's last album Akeda (June, 2014), playing into the same theme of Abraham's final test of commitment by sacrificing his greatest love to God. When he gets to the top of the Mountain and binds his Son to the alter an angel appears and tells Abraham to unbind him, that he has passed the test and proven himself. On the inspiration of the Akeda, Matisyahu explains, "Outside of my own self therapy I create music for The Bound, people who are stuck or struggling on their journeys. This EP is a narrative of Abraham facing this climatic moment when his whole life is in question and finally the RELEASE as he passes his ultimate test. I hope it brings inspiration to those facing similar questions."
