March 3rd Show Review

I had to share this… Regarding March 3rd’s show! The feeling is mutual Boxer Brown!
“The show was killer. I never heard Smittix before and you were awesome. Lots of energy, such precision. You guys sound like NOFX made a baby with Sublime & then that baby got pregnant! I loved every second of it. Glad to have played with you guys!. Your original songs were fucking tight as all hell; the fact…… that you took Pink Floyd & The Beatles and made them your own was awesome. When you started playing “The Wall”, I almost shit my pants and then when it finished I was amazed! “Lords of the Underworld” was awesome too. Reach for the skylar! Rick Barton of Continental Band was a really down to earth guy. It’s rare to meet people who have been playing music for that long that are still so humble. It was an awesome night.”
-Charlie Gnarly (Boxer Brown)

Our Many Thanks to Continental

Thank you so very much to our friends Continental for coming out to play with us in our home-town last night! It was a bitter-cold night so we also want to thank all of the fans that came out to show their support despite the brutal weather conditions; you are TRUE fans!!! More thanks going out to Boxer Brown for setting the night off with their amazing set and to Pauly’s Hotel for hosting the event!

It was a really intimate night for the bands and if I can speak for all of us, we felt a real genuine and committed connection with the audience.

Thank you again, Rick and Stephen Barton as well as the rest of Continental and best of luck to on the remainder of the tour!!!!

2014 Year of the SMITTIX

Smittix2014.jpg 2014 Year of the SMITTIX

SMITTIX-The Ghosts of Ska Punk

us3a.jpg 300x186 SMITTIX The Ghosts of Ska Punk

Why call ourselves the “Ghosts of Ska-Punk”?

Because if we had been a band in the mid 90′s, we probably could have achieved great success. With the 3rd wave of Ska making its mark with bands like The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Reel Big Fish or punk bands like Rancid and NOFX at the top of their game, we would’ve fit right in.

But fuck it, we never really cared about fitting in any way. Smittix has a sound that’s all our own and we don’t really care much about what category or genre we fall under. We just know that we refuse to conform to the bullshit that is being force-fed down everyone’s throats on the mainstream airwaves. I guess you could say we’re keeping it real. Did we really just say we’re keeping it real? Anyway…

We are fans of music and it is music that we will continue to create. Our first album “Leprenomichaun” was just a warm up, what we have in store for you next could possibly be the soundtrack for the next 20 years. Yeah we took some time off from gigging to be able to concentrate on our new material but we promise that when we return to the stage we will give you one hell of a show.

So even if we missed our hey day, as far as Ska-Punk goes, we’ve discovered a new wave that we consider timeless. Our next album will be called “Souls For Ransom”, and we will be hitting the studio in early 2014 to record it for you. In the meantime and in between time don’t forget about us because we have not forgotten about you.

Sincerely,

Smittix
