“We are so excited to be playing with one of our favorite bands of all time and one of the biggest influences on our music!” said Reel Big Fish frontman Aaron Barrett. “We love the English Beat. This tour is a dream come true for us!”
The English Beat’s Dave Wakeling returned the tour-announcement love.
“I was thrilled many years ago to be invited to play at Reel Big Fish’s first album release party, and we are thrilled again to be touring with them now that they are bona fide Skadfathers!”
