It's almost been three weeks since Carl Perkins tragically lost his battle with bowel cancer. 

Tributes and condolences haven't stopped flowing since the 9th of May for the reggae legend, and House Of Shem themselves have released a couple.

House of Shem pay heartfelt tribute to Pāpā Carl

Late last week, the band posted this snap from Hawaii on their Instagram and spoke about their love for the island.

This shows that House of Shem's influence was a lot more than just little old Aotearoa.

Carl along with the rest of the band managed to reach out to music lovers all over the world, and losing him has been a blow to us all.

Rest easy Carl.
