WIRTW #517 (the “interrupter” edition)


Every now and again I like to bring y'all some new music to discover for your Friday. It might not be new, and it might not be new to me, but it might be new to you. And I hope it's something you appreciate and will enjoy.

Today, I bring you The Interrupters.

They might be on the forefront of a ska, pop-punk revival. Comprised of three brothers, Kevin, Jesse, and Justin Bivona, and lead singer Aimee Interrupter, they have a bona fide hit on their hands, "She’s Kerosene," the lead single off their 2018 release, Fight the Good Fight. It's the first ska song to gain any radio play since No Doubt, and currently sits at number 28 on Billboard's Alternative Songs Chart (and climbing). And it's damn catchy.

Here they are performing their hit on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week:


Not only are their songs catchy, but the messages are positive, and the music is just plain fun. And god knows we need more positivity and fun these days.

To top it all off, they are nice people, fan friendly, and deserve all of the success they are achieving.


So head over to your streaming service of choice and check out The Interrupters. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Or, better yet, go to wearetheinterrupters.com, buy some vinyl, and support some really good people making really good music.
