Havok TV Premieres Long Beach Dub Allstars "Soundproof" Episode Discussing The Reunion & History of LBDA

Legendary Long Beach reggae outfit Long Beach Dub Allstars sat down with Havok TV to film an episode “Soundproof” talking about the history of the group and how they initially came together following the passing of Sublime’s Bradley Nowell. The episode, which can be seen online at, goes in-depth about the recent reunion of the group and the writing of new music.

Long Beach Dub Allstars recently released their first taste of new music with two new tracks "Holding Out" and “Steady Customer” online at This is the first new music from Long Beach Dub Allstars since the release of 2001's "Wonders of the World". The songs are currently available on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify, as well as all other digital music retailers. The band is also giving away both tracks to fans that purchase any items from the group's recently relaunched webstore online at

Long Beach Dub Allstars was formed after Sublime disbanded following the death of singer Bradley Nowell in 1996. Long Beach Dub Allstars released two now-classic albums “Right Back” (1999) and “Wonders of the World” (2001), before they went their separate ways in 2002. Long Beach Dub Allstars’ unique mixture of danceable reggae beats and fiery punk-rock energy had a lasting impact on the scene, with both albums becoming highly influential to the groups that came after them.

Long Beach Dub Allstars reunited in 2013 with “Ras MG” Goodman on drums, Michael “Miguel” Happoldt on guitar, Opie Ortiz on vocals, Jack Maness on keys, Tim Wu on horns, Edwin Kampwirth on bass, and Roger Rivas of The Aggrolites on organ.

Long Beach Dub Allstars will be playing a string of West Coast dates throughout November with Fortunate Youth and Arise Roots.
