The 2nd track from "Immigrance" is here - in an animated, eye-popping way!

Co-directed by animator Michaël Alcaras and Stella K, the surreal video for Snarky Puppy’s “Bad Kids To The Back” (written by Michael League Plays Music & Justin Stanton) turns an in-studio performance into a wild animated adventure.

Thanks to Rolling Stone for premiering this hypnotic and visual work of art. Check it out here!

House of Waters' New Record "Rising" Available Everywhere!

House of Waters' new album, "Rising," is available everywhere today!

Along with the release, we're happy to share the video for their song "When I Play." This tune started as a solo bass etude that Moto was working on while they were on the road with Snarky Puppy in Europe a few years back!

New Snarky Puppy Single “Xavi” Available Now

The first single from our new album, “Immigrance,” is now available worldwide. After three years without making a record, it feels so good to put something new out into the world. This track, “Xavi,” is inspired by a beautiful experience we had in Morocco at last year's Gnawa Music Festival in Essaouira, sharing a week of rehearsal and performance with the country's most respected guimbre master, Hamid El Kasri حميد القصري, and his incredible group of musicians. We hope you enjoy it (and feel beat one in the right place).     -Michael League

The full album “Immigrance” drops March 15.
