|Canada – be warned! The Resignators are on their way to tour the hell out of your damn fine country. But before they do, the Melbourne ska outfit will hit the road in Australia to cause a ruckus, raise some funds, and share some dirty, old fashioned, good times with their fellow natives.
As one of Australia’s hardest working independent bands, The Resignators have seen it all. Playing over 400 shows both nationally and internationally including extensive tours of the USA and CanadaSXSW in 2009, this road hardened mob know how to get any room of people on their feet, skanking to their ska infused beats.
Following a string of performances to support the release of their sophomore album ‘See You In Hell’ in late 2010, The Resignators announce another run of shows in January and February. The band will kick off their summer run with performances at POW at Mynt Lounge in Weribee, The St Kilda Festival, and The International Anti Poaching Foundations’ (IAPF) RAW for Africa, to raise funds to help protect Africa’s wildlife from illegal trafficking.
Then on February 18, The Resignators will take the stage at the Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood for a night of mayhem alongside some of the biggest names in Australian ska and punk. Presented by Focus Music Group, the people behind SKA NATION, the night’s massive lineup features Area 7, Kujo Kings, Anarchist Duck, Madonna, Piranha Party as well as DJs Madball and Kujo Wes. The gig will also serve as a fundraiser for The Resignators for their upcoming tour of Canada, so tips will be more than welcome.
Don’t miss your chance to catch one of Australia’s premier ska bands just as they should be – live and sweaty!
