Three Legged Fox released Always Anyway in summer of 2011. Since then they have committed to bringing their live show and message to every city in the United States, including a current nine week Spring/Summer tour. An informal entry into national touring has afforded the band the opportunity to travel and play in many places they thus far have never been. Always Anyway marked a couple milestones for the band including a #2 chart spot on iTunes Reggae, and is the band’s bestselling album to date. More importantly is the ability to play 150-200 shows this year. “We’ve gotten email, or fan mail…whatever you want to call it, from people for years from so many different places that we couldn’t get ourselves to. And so to have the chance to do that now is really a blessing. Music is fan driven, it has to be. The fans that we have, their support and loyalty is never lost on us. We appreciate it tremendously,” explains drummer Kory Kochersperger. The band will record and release new music in 2012. An alternative to releasing an entire album, 3LF will put out a series of singles later this year.
Live Dancehall, Hip-Hop, Reggae & hardcore riffs provide the foundation for singers Prowla & Roosta to perform their brand of Reggae Music. Fear Nuttin Band has created a new genre, which combines American & Jamaican music.
Driven insane by the boredom of Chicago's suburbia and the music on the radio, a group of young lads have gathered together to unleash their madness in a flurry of off-beat guitar grooves, dance beats, and funky horn lines in what is now called the Skalalitabs! "The Skalalitabs" is a name formed from a pun with "ska" and the Qur'anic phrase for Jews, Christians, and Muslims, all of which are represented in the band's lineup. Bringing together ska, reggae, and dance-punk into a combination never before heard, the Skalalitabs will get even the most firmly rooted of wall flowers skanking and jumping!
