30 years after their debut album Black Roots returned to the studio to produce a set of new and original songs. In September 2012 Sugar Shack Records released them in an album entitled On the Ground. With these new songs they are reborn. They have bridged that gap between their 80’s heyday and now, writing and composing new songs almost as if they had never left the reggae music scene. Their sound is once again delivering ‘.. powerful messages hand-in-hand with lovely melodies and well-layered arrangements; with thought rather than anger.’ Brian Robbins Jambands.com.
