YEW! Paul “HR” Hudson, best known as the frontman of the iconic punk band Bad Brains, will release a new solo album, “Give Thanks,” Oct 18th via Hardline Entertainment.

Even radder, Give Thanks will also be available in various vinyl formats including 100 copies in opaque black, red, gold and green all signed and numbered by HR himself.


From a very early point in his career, HR became interested in reggae and the Rastafarian movement. These pursuits transformed him, and he began to focus more on the spiritual nature of reggae rather than the fast lifestyle of the punk scene. In 1984, HR formed his reggae-rock band Human Rights, which has performed and recorded in various incarnations for more than three decades. The current incarnation has a refined yet organic energy that hasn’t been felt since the early days of Human Rights.

HR’s music speaks to the youth of today encouraging them to practice gratitude, to never give up on their dreams, and to live in unity.
