Ska-punk fans, rejoice: '90s band Save Ferris is releasing new material and hitting the road in 2017.
The band, with a new lineup, has announced both a headlining tour and a new EP, aptly titled New Sound, due out Feb. 10, their first release since their 1999 sophomore album, Modified. The album is being funded through a PledgeMusic campaign with a range of perks from a digital download of the EP to a VIP tour package, which includes a sound-check party, Q&A, meet and greet, and photo with the band.
The tour kicks off that same day in Santa Barbara, CA, with two bands splitting opening duties -- Vista Kicks will be on the bill for West Coast dates, while Baby Baby will take the East Coast dates.
The comeback has been in the works since 2013, with Save Ferris appearing on the same bill as such bands as No Doubt and Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
"Since this incarnation of Save Ferris first played together in 2013, the band and I have been working on new music, arranging schedules and selectively playing local shows to get ready for a tour," frontwoman Monique Powell said in a statement. "I have had to tell our fans to 'be patient, I promise it'll happen' for too long now! But now here we are. I can't believe we've made it this far....and now you get to see us in a town near you. For the first time in 15 years, Save Ferris is coming to get you! Are you ready?"
You can grab tickets for shows in Boulder and Philadelphia right here on AXS on Friday, Nov. 18.
