The Pier’s outlook for 2018 sees more strategic releases aimed toward building streaming numbers. This means that down the road these releases may not include full-length albums. Bands are realizing a drop in MP3 downloads as fans switch to various streaming services to access their music vs digitally owning it. If the decline in MP3 sales continue then so does a budget for an up and coming artist trying to record and release 10+ songs for a full length album. Approximately 15,000 streams equals the equivalent of 1 digital album purchase. This creates a strong need to tour in order to promote an album before it quickly gets lost in the white-noise of misc new releases.

Reggae artists who hinted toward releasing new albums in 2018 were Stephen Marley, Steel Pulse,  and Raging Fyah. Inner Circle, Reel Big Fishalso have plans in the works for 2018. Other artists with plans for 2018 include Pennywise, Perro Bravo, The Aggrolites, Protoje and Alborosie. The group Fortunate Youth is discussing another dub album, and exploring a live record. Other groups and artists are writing and recording new material. Whether or not that translates to a new album is still to be determined.

The Pier will continue to bring you the most up to date information on any new releases.This spring, The Pier has plans for a new website and platform.
