Long Beach Shortbus featuring members of Sublime & Long Beach Dub Allstars has regrouped, and are ready for the masses to hear. Eric Wilson's days as Sublime's bassist and Ras1's experience as the lead singer for the Long Beach Dub All Stars have allowed them to fine tune their sound for a new record.
The new album, "Flying Ship of Fantasy" has taken a year to record under the watchful eye of producers Michael "Miguel" Happoldt and Lewis Richards.. It breates new life and original sounds along with the unmistaken identity of the Long Beach musical tradition.
In February 2004 Long Beach Shortbus embarked on a sold out tour of Europe, Fresh from the studio and eager to play the new material for their die hard fans. while on tour back in the U.S., Warner Brothers selected RAS1's song, "Sunny Hours" as the theme song for their new sitcom "Joey" on NBC. This revelation has ignited the band into another song writting frenzy, which will ultimately result in another full length album for next year.
This year has been momentous with a constan, consistent touring schedule, and thousands of miles and fans under the belt. Long Beach Shortbus is breaking new ground every tour, delivering thunderous rock sets night after night.
