Following the success of their last studio album, AMPLIFY, which debuted at number one on Billboard’s Reggae Chart last October, John Brown's Body returns in March with RE-AMPLIFY. This new release features six remixes of songs from AMPLIFY along with a brand new, previously unreleased JBB song performed live at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, CO last fall. The record will have an exclusive digital release on iTunes March 3, then has a full physical and digital release March 17.

The producers involved with this release are a diverse group of top notch remixers, including Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo (guitarist from the Gold Record Certified Gym Class Heroes), Tommie Sunshine (American rave legend and remixer of songs by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, Panic! At The Disco, Good Charlotte and others), GoldieLocks (up-and-coming artist/producer from the UK, recently nominated for DJ Mag Best British Breakthrough Producer and featured in a photo spread in Maxim), Dubmatix (one of Canada’s best known reggae producers, recently nominated for a Juno), Blue King Brown (Australian reggae/afro-beat masters, of whom Carlos Santana said, “…my favorite band right now”), and Wrongtom (London DJ who has remixed Hard-Fi, Lily Allen and Roots Manuva).

“RE-AMPLIFY takes the Future Roots sound we achieved on AMPLIFY even further into directions we might never have gone on our own,” says drummer Tommy Benedetti. “It’s been exciting hearing our songs in other producers’ hands. We enjoyed Dubmatix’s version of ‘The Gold’ so much, we are going to start playing it that way live. Then we bring it full circle to the early JBB sound by ending the record with a new roots track we’ve been having fun playing on the road.”
