live on tour
Three albums down the line, and The Interrupters are changing the face of ska punk; the once semi-comical genre is becoming meaningful again.
"I want us to be as big as the universe allows"explained Kevin Bivona from ska punk band The Interrupters, in an interview with Kerrang. Indeed, the band's socio-political music is connecting with a growing audience, and they are drawing comparisons with bands such as Green Day with whom The Interrupters supported on a global tour - and The Offspring.
Lead singer Aimee Allen, whose disrupted childhood saw her pushed from one foster care placement to the next, first met Kevin when she was signed as a solo artist to Elektra. She had been working with the likes of Mark Ronson, but began writing with Kevin and two years later, The Interrupters were born. Rancid's Tim Armstrong heard some of their material and they were soon signed to his label, Hellcat Records, with Tim as their producer.
Hit tracks such as Liberty, Family, Babylon and She's Kerosene followed, alongside studio albums, The Interrupters, Say It Out Loud, and most recently, Kerrang's Album of the Week, Fight the Good Fight. Now the band are on tour grab your tickets fast.
