L.A.B return with their new album, L.A.B VI, the latest addition to their expanding catalogue. After recording & releasing their first five albums in a five year span, L.A.B VI arrives after an almost two year-long period of writing, recording, tweaking & finessing what is their strongest album to date.

Recorded with frequent collaborator Lee Prebble at Wellington's Surgery Studios, the album has been recorded amongst a heavy touring schedule which has seen the band perform sold-out shows across NZ, Australia, the United States, UK & Europe over the past two years. In between tours, the band would set up camp at Surgery Studios, writing & recording all day & night during their stays.

Whittled down from nearly 30 total tracks, the 11 songs featured on L.A.B VI are a welcome addition to an already beloved catalogue. Incorporating all aspects of the bands unique sound, the album combines reggae/roots & soul with funk & elements of rock. Featuring the singles 'Take It Away', 'Casanova', 'Oh No (Pt. 2)' & the newly-released ‘Ocean Demon’, the album shows off all the different sides of the L.A.B sound.

The album release comes before a series of special festival performances at Electric Avenue in Christchurch & a return to the iconic Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia. They will also return to Hawaii for two special shows alongside acclaimed reggae/pop act Iration, before a run of shows in the United States including a return to California Roots Festival.
