SKASSAPUNKA (I)

Skassapunka was founded at the end of 2008 in Lainate, near Milan. The band quickly became known for their strong anti-fascist and anti-racist statements. In 2013 they released their first album “Di Vento in Vento”. In 2014 they signed with the independent label Kob Records. The second album “Il Gioco del Silenzio” was released in 2015 with the participation of Enrico from Los Fastidios and Dema from Talco, followed by a first European tour. The single “We Want to Dance to Ska” and another tour followed in 2016. In 2017 the single “Bella Ciao” and the third album “Rudes Against” were released, and on another European tour Skassapunka played together with bands such as Bad Manners, The Prosecution and The Flatliners. In 2018 the band celebrated their tenth anniversary with the new EP “Adelante” and the accompanying “Adelante Tour”. In the same year they played with some of the most important names in the Italian and international ska and punk scene, including The Locos, The Real McKenzies, The Bombpops, Los Fastidios and The Sewer Rats. The next tour began in May 2019, named after the single “Paradox”. In November 2020, the new album “Revolutionary Roots” was released by the Maldito Records label, followed in July 2021 by the single “United We Stand” and in March 2022 by another single, the ska-punk cover of the well-known Irish song ” “Foggy Dew”. The Italian combat folk band Modena City Ramblers appeared as a guest on the latter release. In December of the same year, Skassapunka released “Dopolavoro”, a two-tone ska song from the new album “Al di là del vostro cielo” that came out on 23 of June 2023.
