The Resignators, from Victoria, Australia, are a seven headed brash and boisterous ska punk monster, featuring blistering guitar, thumping bass, melodious keyboards, driving drums and a military like horn section, ready to attack, putting a bomb under the relatively easy, feel-good vibes that are often spun in the genre, with their punk-inflected ska.
If anything, they show a more balanced blending of the two genres without becoming too much of one or the other. The Resignators' take on ska is heavy and they tend toward raucous rock with something of a ska twist, but most of all they make you dance!
Think Australia's The Cat Empire mixed with the UK's The Clash on a warm summers afternoon on an Australian beach sipping large margaritas, palm trees swaying on the breeze and the sweet sound of rock'n'roll blasting from the car stereo, girls dancing on the sand, that's The Resignators.
It’s no wonder that the band have caught the attention and eardrums of punk fans throughout the world. They seem to have it all: their catchy, infectious sound, combined with the loudness and aggressiveness of punk rock, make them one of the most intriguing bands of the ska genre.
Much has changed since 2005 but the drive and search of good times, great music and an audience willing to dance their arses off remains.
No strangers to the road, The Resignators, have toured extensively throughout Australia, Europe and North America including some of the world's largest festivals, St Kilda Festival (Australia), Caloundra Festival (Australia), Open Flair (Germany), Ottawa Blues Festival (Canada), Train to Skaville (Croatia), Mighty Sounds (Czech Republic), Victoria Ska Fest (Canada), Pod Paru (Czech Republic) and many others whilst continuing to grow their sound and spread good vibes worldwide.
