Mandatory Fun recently won a Grammy in the category of Best Comedy Album! The album features parodies of some of the biggest hits of the past year, including Pharrell Williams’ Happy (Tacky), Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines (Word Crimes), Lorde’s Royals (Foil), Iggy Azalea’s Fancy (Handy) and Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive (Inactive).
Mandatory Fun made chart history which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart. It’s the first time that Al has ever had a #1 album – in fact, it’s the first time a comedy album has topped the Billboard chart in over 50 years (and the first time a comedy album has debuted at #1 in history!)
Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals are reuniting for their first tour in seven years. "The Innocent Criminals are a family," Harper said of the band's return to touring. "We've remained very close over the years and it seemed like we couldn't wait another minute. We've all come full circle in our own ways and it is time we pick up where we left off. It's creatively time for us to do this.”
The Innocent Criminals – percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates and guitarist Michael Ward. Founding members Mobley, Nelson and Charles have been integral parts of Harper’s sound for more than 20 years, first playing gigs at the tiny Mint nightclub in Los Angeles and supporting Harper’s 1994 debut, Welcome to the Cruel World. Yates and Ward became ICs a decade later and helped expand and refine the band’s sound.
“The new music we’re writing honors the old IC sound, but is light ages ahead of where we were back then,” explained Harper. “I can’t wait for fans to hear it and give us that stamp of approval that only Innocent Criminal fans can give.”
Benjy Ferree lets his distinctive blend of rock and roll and Americana across new borders and genres. Drawing as much from the country meandering of Jimmie Rodgers and the passionate blues pounding of Son House as he does from the vocal hysterics of Freddie Mercury and the balladry of Nick Cave, Ferree crafts a sound that is difficult to fit into any one category, but upon listening is as gratifying as it is unique.
