Ha waii-based reggae band The Lambsbread are passing on a message of love, upliftment and unity in a track titled 'Pass Me The Fire', which was released on December 6.

Written and produced by 15-year-old band member Jacob Selassie, the roots and reggae social commentary tells a tale as old as time.

"The song is about how the brainwashing system tries to keep the people in slavery with mentality that they are promoting. But they will not last as the people evolve spiritually. Basically, good over evil every time," said band member Kaya Lambsbread.

With Lambsbread on vocals and Selassie on the keyboard, the family band also comprises vocalist Nadia, 19-year-old Samuel Levi on the drums, and five-year-old viral sensation, singer and songwriter Ikaika.

Using the messages of love, peace, equality and justice for all mankind at the forefront of their vision, the band uses words, sound and power to leave a meaningful legacy.

The soulful track also features veteran reggae musician Chris Meredith on bass, Jesus 'Chewy' Gallegos on guitar, and was mixed by Levi.

First single

Distributed by Zojak Worldwide, Pass Me The Fire is the first single off the band's forthcoming full-length studio album, which is set to be released in the spring of 2020.

This will bring their album total to six, following their most recent project, World Needs Love.

Released in 2017, reggae acts Sizzla and Morgan Heritage make appearances on the tracks Roots & Cult ure and Feel The Vibes, respectively.

Initially a duo, the band started out in 2003 with parents Kaya and Nadia Lambsbread, before their talented and musically inclined children came on board.

Over the course of their illustrious career, they've had the opportunity to work with artistes such as Freddie McGregor, Barrington Levy, Toots & the Maytals, and Kymani Marley and have embarked on well-received tours in the US, sharing their talents and meaningful messages with the world.
