The band says, “We don’t yet have a title for this new CD but these songs are mega premium! Insta-classic Askultura epics, tropical chants, acoustic sing-a-longs, fast punk rock, and real & traditional ska with titles like ‘Early Warning’, ‘Shower Beer’, ‘Tibetan Window Frames’, and ‘Mezzafettamobbstas’.
2014 was a busy year for the band who launched three full blown tours as well as a handful of regional and weekend jaunts. The band released an album titled I.N.F.E.R.N.O. during the World Cup, and shared stage estate with primo bands like (but not limited to) Mustard Plug, The Mad Caddies, Sibannäc, Sammy Kay & The Fast Four, Consumata, Los Skarroneros, Mephiskapheles, Unlikey Alibi, Malafacha, Radio Armada, Reel Big Fish, The Toasters, and The Slackers.
