The Iscariots are a reggae collective based in Chattanooga, Tennessee and specializing in booty-shaking electro-rock pop reggae.
The band was founded in late 2014 when the members found a reggae vacuum had created itself in Chattanooga following the relocation of long-time local reggae act Milele Roots. Having all played in this group at one point, they formed The Iscariots as a sort of "super group", dedicated to keeping the pulse of reggae alive and well in-between their regular gigs with other acts.
They recently released their sophomore album "Backwards Country" to glowing reviews. It is currently only available in hardcopy form, but will be released online very soon.
