The long-running, SoCal band have also announced a 2019 U.S. tour.

Renowned OC-located ska-punk originals Reel Big Fish have been livin’ large, recently packin’ ‘em in like sardines on a UK co-headlining tour with Less Than Jake and on a second go-around with the acts Ballyhoo! and We Are The Union.

But now it’s all about Reel Big Fish’s new album, Life Sucks… Let’s Dance!. It’s the band’s first studio LP in six years and it pogo-ed forth on December 21st via Rock Ridge Music.

And of course there’s the never-ending touring, with plans for them to cover parts of the U.S. starting in early January with special guests MEST and Bikini Trill (see Tour Dates below).

Reel Big Fish have also made a splash with their latest up-tempo and upbeat video for “Ska Show”, which was directed by Chris Graue. Check out the good-times energy and enthusiasm of their gigs with this rad live performance video in front of a highly receptive crowd.
