The Wailers Back On The Road
Published May 23, 2008

The  Wailers featuring new singer Elan Atias, continue to bring their summer-infused songs to audiences across America.

 

"It's an honor, but I don't look at it as stepping into Bob's shoes," said Elan. "I'm not trying to be Bob.  I'm just trying to keep Bob's message alive."

 

Formed in Jamaica in 1968, The Wailers have sold over 250 million albums and played to an estimated 24 million people around the world. Audiences who come out to the Wailers' shows can expect to hear many of their favorites, such as “Natty Dread,” “No Woman, No Cry,” “Buffalo Soldier,” “Exodus," "War," "Stir It Up," and "One Love."

 

"We are in the process of recording a new album as we definitely want to move forward with new material," he says. "There hasn't been an original Wailers song since Bob passed away [in 1981], so this album will be all new material and new tracks incorporating music from some old unreleased tapes we found not too long ago in Jamaica.
