Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Aggrolites are a reggae band from Los Angeles, California. The Aggrolites are an amalgamation of two previous Los Angeles reggae and ska bands, the Vessels and the Rhythm Doctors, and were originally formed in 2002 as an in-concert backing band for reggae icon Derrick Morgan. The band were asked to record music for a new album for Morgan, and though the actual project was never released, the recording sessions inspired the Aggrolites to become a permanent band. The Aggrolites have also served as the backing band for Phyllis Dillon, Prince Buster, and most recently Tim Armstrong for his solo album "A Poet's Life".

In 2004, the Aggrolites released their debut album, Dirty Reggae, on local reggae label Axe Records. The album was recorded at Signet Studios in Los Angeles within one day, and each track was recorded in one take, with many lyrics improvised on the spot. In November 2004, the Aggrolites were featured on Hellcat Records compilation Give 'Em the Boot IV, and were officially signed to Hellcat in October 2005.

Their 2nd, Self-titled album The Aggrolites was released on the independent label Hellcat/Epitaph on May 9, 2006.. This sophomore album boasts 19 dirty reggae songs, including "Countryman Fiddle," and "Mr. Misery."

They released their 3rd album on June 5, 2007 called Reggae Hit L.A., which won an IGN award for Best Reggae Album of 2007.

The Aggrolites made an appearance on the Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba!, created by Christian Jacobs, lead singer of The Aquabats. Recorded their third song for the show "Animal Sounds", it aired during the debut week of season two.

Their 4th full-length album, aptly named IV (Hellcat Records), was released on June 9, 2009. IV debuted at #110 and peaked at #60 on the Top 200 CMJ Chart. IV also debuted at #37 on the Triple A CMJ Chart and #12 on the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Commercial Alternative Specialty Show Album Chart.

Their newest album Rugged Road is set to be released on March 22, 2011.
