The Flaming Tsunamis

Ska and hardcore never really got along, like back in elementary school when hardcore would give ska wedgies and noogies until he gave up his lunch money and in high school where hardcore would always steal ska's girls. Then came along Connecticut locals the Flaming Tsunamis who made ska and hardcore into best friends. After six years of packed American Legions and VFW halls, the ska-core veterans turned their sights onto a broader style, hence creating Fear Everything. Rather than just combining ska upstroke and horns with breakdowns, TFT threw everything into the mix; freestyle jazz, reggae, strong metal riffs and even a bit of grindcore. Upon reading this, you're probably thinking "All of that mixed together probably sounds like shit" but one would be surprised upon their first listen.

This isn't their first album, but it's a personal favorite of mine that I hold dear to my heart. Check them out and be blown away.
