Flow Tribe has officially announced their upcoming full-length album, BOSS, which is set to release on Apr 28th. BOSS was produced by New Orleans' own Mannie Fresh, a Grammy nominated producer responsible for creating hits for UGK, Lil Wayne, Big Tymers, Juvenile, Gucci Mane, Jeezy, 2 Chainz, The Notorious B.I.G., T.I., and more.

With excitement towards the release of their upcoming album, Flow Tribe explains, "As a band we are thrilled to release "BOSS" Flow Tribe's latest full length album. Over a year in the making, "BOSS" blends the hard-hitting grooves of Flow Tribe with the infectious production brought by Mannie Fresh. This uniquely New Orleans' collaboration puts a new spin on funk, soul, and explores the depths of backbone cracking music. We hope you enjoy listening to "BOSS" as much as we had creating it."
Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band's onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. Outfitted for each performance in colorful, carefully selected suits, it's clear their focus is sharp and the party has begun. This is the work of professional musicians who've found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone is welcome.
Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beats in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans is influence itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed "backbone-cracking music."
K.C. O'Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Russell Olschner (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals who've been writing music and playing live shows since the band's inception in 2004. Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that's stronger than ever. Flow Tribe may well be the city's next music ambassadors.
With two full-length albums and several EPs under their belt, the crew is currently building Downman Sounds, a studio in New Orleans East where they expect to cut their next record. The Tribe can be found crisscrossing the US just about every week of the year, from Key West to California, including regular performances at the notable New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest and Voodoo Fest.
