MATISYAHU SCHEDULES FALL TOUR

Matisyahu will be heading to college towns around the U.S. later this year to support his most recent album, Spark Seeker. The trek for the newly clean-shaven reggae/hip-hop artist will begin October 10 at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, Colo., and the singer will remain on the road through a November 21 show at Backstage Live San Antonio. In between those dates, Matisyahu will visit Sacramento, Calif.; Baton Rouge; Athens, Ga.; Rochester, N.Y.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; St. Louis and Dallas. In a statement the singer explained his decision to tour in college towns this fall.  I’ve played a lot of these markets in past summers,” he said. “To be able to return when school is in session and kids are on campus is something I’ve wanted to do for a while.”

Spark Seeker is the artist’s fourth studio album, and was released in July of this year. The album debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and number one on the U.S. Top Reggae Albums chart.

In other Matisyahu news, he also will be making his film debut later this month. He will star in the Sam Raimi horror film “The Possession” alongside Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. In the movie, which will hit theaters this Friday, the singer plays Tzadok, an exorcist attempting to help a young girl possessed by an evil spirit.

The 2006 sophomore album Youth brought widespread acclaim to Matisyahu, and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Though his lyrics often explored the themes of Hasidic Jewish beliefs, the sound of his records are mainstream reggae and hip-hop. When he posted a picture of himself without his traditional beard late last year, he posted an official statement on his website.

“No more Chassidic reggae superstar,” read the statement. “Sorry folks all you get is me… no alias… Get ready for an amazing year filled with music of rebirth.”
