Passafire’s Vines has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae and iTunes Reggae charts. Vines, the band’s fifth studio album, “is Passafire’s best,” according to Angelica Music.
The record was released November 11th and is the band’s debut release for leading reggae label Easy Star Records.
The album debuted impressively on other Billboard charts including #10 on the Heatseekers Chart, #57 on the Independent Releases, #1 on South Atlantic New Artist Chart, and #109 on the Top 200 Digital albums, amongst others.
The album mirrors the success of 2011’s album Start From Scratch, which also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, but outselling that album’s first week.
“As our label grows, we are always looking for new talent that compliments and enhances our roster.
Passafire is a natural fit to our family, but also brings a diverse and alternative sound that is truly unique to them.
With their new album Vines debuting at #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart, it further elevates their profile to the top of the exploding U.S. reggae scene,” says Easy Star CEO Eric Smith.
