180g Vinyl LP Featuring Single "Pink Balloon"!
First Studio Album In Over 8 years!
Tracing their roots back to 1993, the Innocent Criminals (percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates and guitarist Michael Ward) were involved in most of Harpers projects before going on hiatus in 2008. The band toured the globe nonstop, earning legions of fans thanks to explosive live performances and a succession of acclaimed studio albums including Fight For Your Mind, The Will to Live, Burn to Shine, Diamonds on the Inside and the GRAMMY® nominated Lifeline, their last studio album together in 2007. The Innocent Criminals also backed Ben and The Blind Boys of Alabama on the two-time GRAMMY® winning collaborative album There Will Be A Light in 2004.
Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals follow their triumphant 2015 reunion tour with Call It What It Is, their first studio album in nine years.
The new album from Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals is an incisive, bold, poetic statement that could only come from these long-time band mates and close collaborators, one of popular music's most essential, cohesive and dynamic ensembles.
"With lyrics blunt and funny, rollicking guitars, and an irrestible beat, it's a delicious mix of pop fun with a hard rock edge.." - Karen Bells, The Absolute Sound, 4/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics
