Open Season


Open Season is back with a new Single titled ‘Rocksteady’ which dropped on January 31, 2020. With their new single, ‘Rocksteady’, Open Season celebrates the soundtrack of their lives. Their roots in Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae, the warm feeling when the bassline drops, euphoric nights in small clubs all over Europe.

A new studio album with the same title will be out on February 21, 2020, exactly 20 years after the band was formed.


IRIE™ | Open Season - Rocksteady

Release Date: January 31, 2020
Label: Open Season
Copyright: Open Season
Total Length: 3:04
Total Tracks: 1
Format: Single
Genre: Reggae

It’s in some ways a homecoming for the band, from trips to Bombay (featured on Open Season’s last, India-inspired album) and the stadium of their football team (which won the Swiss championship, with Open Season providing the official song). ‘Rocksteady’ focuses on warm, earthy dance rhythms, live horns, and an unpolished voice.

Right after the release, Open Season will go on tour with a mission to carry Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae into the new decade.

Open Season members include: Santosh Aerthott, Res Staudenmann, Christoph Walther, Oliver Hürzeler, Stefan Bernhard, Ariane Lüthi, Roman Haller, and Daniel Brélaz.
