Trinity Roots are taking to the road to celebrate the release of their third studio album ‘Citizen’ with a national tour this May and June.

The Wellington-based platinum-selling trio launched the powerful follow-up to 2004’s Home, Land and Sea as part of their live performance at WOMAD 2015 in March.

New Zealand has come to know and love the music of Trinity Roots – a boil-up of ingredients that musically embody the very essence of our home, land and sea through their homely fusion of reggae, slow-funk and jazz exploration.

Citizen is a snapshot of the band’s progression and development since the creation of the previous two albums. Musically & lyrically, Warren Maxwell, Rio Hemopo and newly-joined drummer Ben Wood (Newtown Rocksteady, Hikoikoi Reserve, Amiria Grenell, French for Rabbits) have expanded their palette of sound and produced something informative and resonant with present day Aotearoa.

Maxwell on Citizen:
“As an over-critical, pedantic, self-deprecating, arrogant, stubborn, egotistic musician, I feel really happy with this record. I feel anxious yet content in that we have made it a challenging listen. I feel like we’ve tried to stay true and sincere to all kaupapa in the songs – they all come from a genuine place for genuine purpose. Our intent is the same as it has always been – to convey honest musings on a vehicle of sonic influences to whomever wishes to listen.”

Praise for the album…

"The album will be a bit of a jump for fans expecting another Home, Land and Sea, but Warren Maxwell’s dusty tone and lyrical metaphor remain unchanged, acting as clear markers for navigating this sea of diverse influences"
– The Wireless

“A quietly accomplished album, Citizen is a slow burner that ends up dazzling.”
– Metro Magazine

“The album is a waka of sorts: a vessel shaped from a living entity, carved into form and function. It urges us to look closely at ourselves, our families, and our communities, and at how we interact. It questions our priorities, our direction, and our leadership. It encourages us to consider change. It points the finger at greed, deception, hypocrisy, and apathy, yet manages to remain ever hopeful.”
– Bay of Plenty Times
