EAGLE-VAIL — Denver and Vail Valley-based roots-folk-rock band Bonfire Dub will release “Pilot” on Friday, the group’s second single this year on Immersive Records. The single, produced by Immersive’s Steven Vidaic, will be available digitally at all major online retailers. Accompanying the release will be a music video, directed by Jesse Borrell at NOCOAST.

“With their new single, ‘Pilot,’ Bonfire Dub soars with a song of uncommon goodness laced with the spirit of the great West,” said Tom Genes, of KZYR The Zephyr. “It’s a cry for freedom in a maddening world. Play it often!”

LOCAL SHOW

To celebrate the release, Bonfire Dub will play a free, all-ages show Thursday at Vail Brewing Co. in Eagle-Vail with Jon Nedza.

Bonfire Dub plays a deep and powerful blend of roots music, original songs with rich melodies featuring down-tempo, acoustic-laced and electric steel-driven reggae, folk and dub. Featuring members of Elephant Revival, The Congress and Sucker, Bonfire has honed its current sound through live performances on the national festival scene, although early origins of the group can be found amidst electronic beats and soundscapes.

Bonfire’s lyrical repertoire is inspired by Eastern philosophy, indigenous struggles, political injustice, international relief efforts and a deep respect for the soul of love and the balance of nature. Founder Scotty Stoughton interweaves stories of hope and struggle, derived from his humanitarian aid experiences in regions of Central America, Haiti and Turkey.
