Jamaican roots artist Chronixx, a pioneering force in the contemporary reggae movement, is proud to announce his biggest tour to date and his debut album title, both named Chronology.

This year alone, Chronixx & Zincfence Redemption Band headlined tours in Africa, Japan, Europe and North America and rocked major festival shows like Coachella (USA),Austin City Limits (USA), Lovebox (UK) and One Love (Italy) as well as supported the iconic UK rock band Stone Roses at Manchester City Football Club’s Etihad Stadium.

In 2017, the 24-year-old singer and his band expand on this success, kicking off their massive North American tour on March 2 in support of Chronixx's first full length album Chronology (slated for an early 2017 release). The Chronology Tour spans 39 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday December 14, 2016. Dates below and here.

Chronixx reveals his first visual "Majesty" from Chronology. The song, a beautiful interpretation of Otis Gayle's 1971 Studio One classic "I’ll Be Around" (originally sung by the '70s soul group The Spinners), is also featured on Chronixx's most recent mixtape "Roots and Chalice" curated by NYC's Federation Sound. Majesty is about a spiritual vibration, the divinity within the woman and the balance that can be found within I&I. It’s celebrating that union,” explains Chronixx. In the visual, directed by Chronixx and Che Kothari, the singer serenades his love in a dreamy scenario, set on Jamaica's lush north coastal property Strawberry Fields Together in Robin's Bay, St. Mary.
