Mrs Skannatto have announced dates for their ‘Back To School Tour’. The trek kicks off in Brooklyn, NY on August 29 and winds down on September 13 in Buffalo, NY.

From reggae and third-wave ska to punk and heavy rock, the band’s latest LP “Outlier” reflects the eclectic musical backgrounds and styles of the Rochester, N.Y.-based ska rockers.

Their music is an exploration of divergent musical genres that ultimately delivers an original and intriguing sound. Their new album explodes as the smooth yet powerful vocals blend with ambitious guitar grooves and the dramatic drums, bass, and horns drive the tracks’ rhythmic energy and clever lyrics, making you think and then dance … and then hit the play button over and over again.

Mrs. Skannotto is: Alex Bochetto (drums), Dan Carter (bass), Evan Dobbins (trombone), Mike Frederick (guitar), Joe Harmon (vocals), and Justin Lloyd (trumpet).

A music video for the song “The Outlier” can be viewed here.

What others are saying about Mrs. Skannotto:

“…an exciting, fast-paced and extremely compelling album. Ska-punk may not be a genre that’s considered ‘cool’ anymore, but Mrs. Skannotto have made one of the coolest uncool albums you’re likely to hear all year.”- Indulge-Sound

“”Outlier” has something for everyone who likes it raucous, rowdy and fun. I dare you to try and sit still while listening to this one.”- Rochester City Newspaper
