Following their triumphant return to Brooklyn with a performance at the Barclays Center‘s “Caribbean Fever” mega-show, Morgan Heritage is now gearing up to release the band’s first studio album since 2008. The “Royal Family Of Reggae” unleash Here Come The Kings to the world on April 23rd. The new album features the group’s signature powerhouse vocals over slick riddims from acclaimed producers such as Shane C. Brown (Juke Boxx Productions) and multiple Grammy Award nominee Jason “J-Vibe” Farmer. The bouncy lead single, “Perfect Love Song,” arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day. Peetah Morgan’s passionate lead vocal delivery, coupled with the deeply soulful stylings of Gramps on the deejay section, are sure to put lovers in the mood.
While the album is heavy on lovers content, like the pulsing “Love Stoned (ft. Busy Signal),” Here Come The Kings also includes the message music that Morgan Heritage fans have come to embrace. “Stand Up,” “Man Has Forgotten,” and “Dem Ah Run Come” serve as some of the most immediate calls to consciousness that Heritage has produced, to date.

This success comes off the heels of his recent U.S. concert performances at Brooklyn’s Barclays Arena on December 12 and Hard Rock Cafe in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on December 14. While in New York City, Beres also sat in with The Roots on December 11 to make his national late night television debut on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
“Beres’ touring and the national media exposure played a major role in this increase” states Aaron Talbert, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for VP Records. “CD sales at the venues and the in store appearances in New York and Miami really put the album in front of the fans,” he adds.
“We hope to continue the momentum through Christmas and into 2013. “We are happy and proud to see Beres at the top of the chart,” states VP Records President Chris Chin.
