Peaceblaster comes nearly three years after STS9’s 2005 releases, Artifact & Artifact: Perspectives, both of which were named in iTunes list of top albums of the year.

After a flurry of industry attention, the band retreated from the limelight to do what it loves most: play music. STS9 reached as high as No. 29 on Pollstar‘s Concert Pulse charts, which list the country’s top touring artists.

The band has shared the stage with a diverse range of acts including James Brown, Jurassic 5, Tortoise, Digable Planets, RJD2, Talib Kweli, Ghostland Observatory, Prefuse 73, Blackalicious, Saul Williams, Soulive, Cut Chemist, and many others, as well as appearing at festivals like Austin City Limits Festival, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Winter Music Conference, and Vegoose Festival.
