Interskalactic are set to release their forthcoming EP titled ‘Interskalactic’ on March 31st, ahead of a host of pre-summer shows throughout Ireland. Hailed as “the future of ska in Ireland” (Ryan Tubridy, The Late Late Show), Interskalactic have firmly marked their place as a truly unique favourite on the Irish live music scene by adding their modern big band flavour to first-wave, old-school Jamaican ska and Interskalactic certainly know how to keep a dance floor busy.
Their upbeat set features covers from classic ska artists including Prince Buster, The Skatalites and Byron Lee & the Dragonaires, their own ska-ified versions of popular hits from the last few decades and now also their own music – this upcoming EP features five brand new and original big band ska tracks.
Stellar live performances since the band’s formation in 2013 include:
RTE’s The Late Late Show
Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Cork Jazz Festivals
Opened for Madness M.A.D.H.E.A.D. Tour in the 3Arena and Odyssey Arena Belfast
Performances in prestigious venues Vicar Street, The Workman’s Club and Whelan’s and at countless festivals, events, parties and venues all over the country.
With an incredible few years behind them, their debut EP with original recordings ready to release this March, Interskalactic are set to stay on this trajectory throughout 2017 and beyond!
