Brazilian ska-punk band Abraskadabra released their new album Welcome last month and will be making the trip to America to celebrate. The 15 date tour will start in Boston on 4/14 and will span across the nation ending in Denver on 5/05 (full dates below).
“We had a great time there four years ago and met one of the greatest ska icons, Brent Friedmann,” says guitarist/vocalist Buga. “He’s setting us up with awesome gigs and bands from all over the country and has become a very good friend of ours. We’re very excited to be coming back for the second time.“
“It’s an album that sums up what this band is pretty well,” says guitarist/vocalist Du. “Fast punk rock songs with horns, melodic vocals and backing vocals. We wanted to give no chill to the listener because we believe this is what punk rock/hardcore/ ska music is all about.”
