Hold The Fire, due out Friday, February 2nd via Matisyahu’s own label Fallen Sparks Records, is centered around the four earth elements, with the EP’s first single “Fireproof” touching upon Matisyahu’s unwavering ability to keep his artistic fire burning. The recently released track explores the topics of perseverance and gratitude in times of trouble. As a theme everyone can relate to, especially with what is currently happening in Israel, “Fireproof” is resonating with listeners everywhere for its timely and hopeful message and has already been hailed as “an anthem of overcoming adversity.” PRESS HERE to listen to “Fireproof.”

In his continued support of Israel and his Jewish roots, Matisyahu made a surprise appearance today (November 14th) at the March for Israel at the National Mall in Washington, DC where he performed his global anthem “One Day” alongside The Maccabeats. Marking one of the largest public displays of Jewish pride, solidarity with the people of Israel, and inter-group unity based on shared American and Jewish values, today’s gathering of hundreds of thousands – which also included appearances from President of Israel Isaac Herzog, Debra Messing, Van Jones, Michael Rapaport, Israeli musicians Ishay Ribo and Omer Adam, family members of the hostages in Gaza, various faith leaders, bipartisan congressional leaders, and more – called for the urgent and safe release of the hostages, the denouncement of antisemitic violence, hate and harassment in the U.S., and the end of Hamas and terrorism amidst America’s continuous support of Israel.

“That was amazing. What an incredible thing it was to be with everybody and in total unity with the Jewish people in Washington, DC,” shares Matisyahu. “Singing ‘One Day’ together blew me away with what we’re going through right now. The way that song has become an anthem for so many young people is so moving. Thank you to everyone – what a day!”

Like only the most gifted storytellers, Matisyahu spins the rare kind of stories that simultaneously enlighten, enthrall, and expand the audience’s sense of possibility. Known for his skill in blending a shapeshifting collision of reggae, hip-hop, alt rock and boldly inventive pop – all while paying homage to his spirituality and roots in Judaism – Matisyahu’s live shows consistently provide audiences with a dynamic and energetic performance full of life and illumination. With more than fifteen years under his belt, he’s teamed up with the best improvisational musicians and artists for jam sessions and collaborations, and his long and winding career consists of seven studio albums including the chart-topping Light (2009), Youth (2006), and Spark Seeker (2012), as well as Akeda (2014), Undercurrent (2017), and Matisyahu (2022), and various live albums including his 2005 breakthrough Live At Stubb’s. This past summer, the New York-raised and New Jersey-based multi-talent released Live In Brooklyn, recorded at the iconic Brooklyn Bowl New York during his annual Festival of Light. Exemplifying his transcendent live show, Live In Brooklyn features renditions of fan-favorites and global hits including the Gold-certified “One Day” – whose original version has been streamed over 140 million times on Spotify alone – and the genre-bending, Billboard Hot 100-charting and alt-radio topping breakthrough single “King Without A Crown.” The release of “Fireproof” follows Matisyahu’s recent single “Ripples,” released in September.
