Riding a career spanning 15 years, the guys in Mrs Skannotto are no strangers to their brand of third-wave ska-rock. The Rochester, NY-based six-piece recently released its fifth studio release, the 14-track full-length effort titled All These Evolutions.
Ranging from huge-sounding choruses on tracks like the blistering opener “Just As Well” and the forceful “Lost and Found…” to more mellow sounds (think RX Bandits meets The Police) on songs like “The Blame” and “Fair Weather Foe,” All These Evolutions sees Mrs Skannotto continuing to break ground even after more than a decade as a band.
A testament to the ideals of teamwork and the do-it-yourself ethos, Mrs Skannotto is looking to continue to build upon its fanbase in 2013 while it supports its new record. The band recently completed a tour consisting of 40+ dates with their good friends in The Toasters, and spent a chunk of 2012 on tour with Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Mad Caddies, Flatfoot 56, and A Wilhelm Scream.
The band has just announced dates for their Summer 2013 Tour which kicks off June 28 in Pawtucket, RI and winds down July 28 inPittsburgh, PA.
