High Flying Scottish ska-punks The Hostiles surge forward with their new video single Inconsiderate – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtrhfQx3CiU. The track is pulled from the band’s acclaimed new album Last Call, out now.
Described by Punktastic.com as “upbeat, effervescent, bouncy and danceable”, skacore crew THE HOSTILES are noted for delivering highly energetic sweat-drenched live performances, underpinned by a two-pronged brass backbone of trombone. Formed in Ayr back in 2001, The Hostiles began with brothers Josh (Guitar), and Chris (Bass), who grew up in the States before moving to Scotland in their teens. Joined by local like-minded ska-lovers, Callum Douglas (Drums), Steve Bruce (Trombone) and later Joe Stainke (Trombone), their sound was firmly formed, echoing heavier skacore acts like Capdown, Lightyear and King Prawn. Since releasing their debut album in 2009, The Hostiles have captured cult followings through the UK, Europe and beyond, playing hundreds of gigs sharing stages with Catch 22, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Zebrahead, The Mad Caddies and Strike Anywhere, and have received numerous tracks throughout the world.
The Hostiles’ new album Last Call has just been released, picking up critical acclaim from national press and wide praise from many online publications, with Powerplay Magazine stating that the band “have an irrepressible energy that shines through their music, making them impossible not to like”. With the release of their mightily infectious brand new video single Inconsiderate, backed with even more shows and tour dates this September, The Hostiles’ continued rise is undoubtable.
