The year ended on an even higher note with the announcement of Raging Fyah’s 2017 US Winter Tour with Tribal Seeds as well as a European Tour in the Spring with UB40. Exciting news soon followed with a grammy nod for Best Reggae Album for “Everlasting,” their debut album with the Dub Rockers label. While many people may consider them to be a new band that has seen rapid growth over the last two years, in reality Raging Fyah has been working tirelessly for nearly a decade to earn these well deserved accolades.
