With the release of “Sleepless Nights” in 2011 and the addition of jazz musicians Ian Weiss on saxophone and Jocelyn Waugh on trumpet to the roster, Giraffe Aftermath was becoming one of the top dub-reggae acts in Western Canada. Opening for legends such as Katchafire, The Black Seeds, John Brown's Body and Macklemore to name a few, Giraffe Aftermath's live show continuously became more entrancing. In the summer of 2013 Giraffe Aftermath embarked on their first international tour, pairing nicely with San Francisco based ska/reggae band Burnt. The two bands cruised in their matching cream coloured Dodge Ram vans all the way down the West Coast from Vancouver, Canada to San Diego, California.
The band then returned to Canada, headlining the official Victoria Ska Festival after party and continued to play a series of sold out BC shows. There is no doubt Giraffe Aftermath leaves crowds thirsty to for more. They deliver adventurous live sets of relentless groove, laced with good old fashioned, honest, songwriting. A new studio album "Space echo beach scene" is due to be released on June 18th 2014.
Giraffe Aftermath's future plan is to ride this album as deep into the sonic realm of space as this music will allow. All are welcome. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
