March 28, 2019 – As they prepare to launch their latest world tour – currently 75-dates hitting 19 countries – Snarky Puppy’s latest studio album Immigrance is winning critical praise and Billboard chart success. The follow-up to 2016’s GRAMMY-winning Culcha Vulcha, Immigrance has debuted on five different Billboard charts, including #2 on Heatseekers, #2 on Jazz Albums and #8 on Independent Albums. The album is also making waves on charts across the world - #11 digital album in France, #2 Jazz album in France, #2 on the UK Jazz and Blues chart among others. The band begins their latest world tour April 11th in Osaka, Japan, and more dates will be announced soon.

The album has also garnered a wide swath of critical praise, here’s what we’ve been hearing about Immigrance:

“Workouts like ‘Chonks’ and ‘Bigly Strictness’ allow some of the 19 musicians to stretch out with liquid guitar, horn or keyboard solos, yet the band leans into its grooves — more in service to melodies than chops.”

-Rolling Stone

“Winner of three Grammys and numerous other distinctions, the instrumental mega-combo is also a globalist when it comes to musical styles, finding room to add a wide spectrum of world sounds to its jazz and funk foundations.”

-Associated Press

“Snarky Puppy aren’t exactly jazz: their music combines jazz with funk, prog rock, and rhythms and textures from around the world. But they’re almost always interesting, and their new album is definitely worth hearing.”

-Stereogum

“Snarky Puppy might be today’s most popular band whose audience wouldn’t be fazed by a nearly 10-minute-long lead single with no words.”

-New York Times

Immigrance is less about each bandmember's individual improvisational contribution (though there are moments of brilliant soloing), and more focused on the group's intricate, mutative arrangements.”
