Legendary Ska/Punk band, Fishbone is red hot…again, as the group’s early members have made their way back home.

With the classic early 80s lineup now firmly in place, Fishbone is on a mission to reclaim its rightful spot among the rock-n-roll elite.

2018 is proving to be the year of a major comeback for Fishbone with a full calendar of scheduled dates for the U.S. and abroad. Highlights include performances at Houston’s Party at the Plaza at Avenida, Bucks Backyard in Austin, Back To The Beach Festival in Huntington Beach, CA, alongside 311 and Sublime with Rome, Beer X Festival in San Diego, the Palladium in Worcester, MA with The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones, the Fuji Rock Festival in Yuzawa, Japan, as well as an appearance at Punk Rock Bowling in historic downtown Las Vegas. Many U.S. club shows and a European tour are also being added.

“It’s absolutely unreal, at this stage of the game, stated bassist and founding member, Norwood Fisher. To be reunited as brothers and bandmates! The band feels as if it’s almost firing better than ever. We’re all equally excited to get on the grind and bring this energy to the stage for those that have supported us throughout our career, the Whirl’d Wide Familyhood.”

Founded in 1979, Fishbone quickly claimed their spot at the table with their 1985 self-titled release that included fan favorites like “Party at Ground Zero” and “Ugly,” and then followed that up in 1988 with their groundbreaking, critically acclaimed full length Truth and Soul album which featured the track “Freddie’s Dead” the band’s first big hit on MTV.

Since then, Fishbone has gone on to release 9 more albums garnering major radio airplay and has made multiple appearances in various movies as well as performing live on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show. In 2012, a documentary written and directed by Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, and narrated by actor Laurence Fishburne, entitled “Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone,” was released and premiered at 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival.

“I just want to say thank you to all the Fishbone Soldiers for donating their hearts and souls for the preservation of our band’s legacy in an OG Fishbone classic manifestation, stated front man, Angelo Moore. For me and for you.”

Band Members:

Angelo Moore – saxophone, vocals
John Norwood Fisher – bass guitar, vocals
Philip “Fish” Fisher – drums, vocals
Walter A. Kibby II – trumpet, vocals
Christopher Dowd – keyboards, trombone, vocals
John Bigham – guitar, keyboards
