Internationally acclaimed Washington D.C. 8-piece SOJA release their new album Poetry in Motion on ATO Records. SOJA's core sound – an uplifting meld of reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, Latin, rock, and hip-hop – is as tight and compelling as it's ever been in the group's 20 year history, but now the group digs deeper on its message of finding peace and understanding in the world caught in tribulation. For the band, having fun and social awareness can, and should, co-exist. "More" is a Bob Marley-influenced manifesto to fight greed by being content with what you got and "Bad News" looks for hope in tragic headlines.

"‘More' is about consumption and envy," explains lead singer Jacob Hemphill. "It's about the false belief that you need more stuff to be happy [and] about trying to strip all that away and finding happiness in the truth that less is more. ‘Poetry in Motion' is about us, the human race. We're beautiful. We're the caretakers of this earth and everything that lives here, calls it home. But something is wrong. Something in us is lost. That's the focus – how to get back to the beauty and away from...well, this."

SOJA's last two albums Amid The Noise and Haste (2014) and Live In Virginia (2016) each earned the band a Grammy nomination in the ‘Best Reggae Album' category.
