National Headliner - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Since their inception in 1984, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have been one of rock music's most prolific touring and recording bands. During their 30+ year career they have played thousands of shows all over the world and released a slew of ground breaking albums.
The Bosstones are credited as a progenitor of the ska-punk genre, and the creators of its sub-genre ska-core, a form of music which mixes ska with punk and hardcore. Since the release of their 1989 debut album Devil's Night Out, the band has toured and recorded extensively.
They were a key figure in the development of the mid-90's "Third Wave" ska scene and one of the first bands to popularize the genre in the musical mainstream with their platinum-selling 1997 album Let's Face It, and its hit single "The Impression That I Get." They have also earned the reputation as one of the hardest touring bands in rock.
The band released seven studio albums, three EPs and a live album by the time they announced a hiatus in December 2003.
