ska haters, don't bother posting!

I "discovered" these guys last night via Spotify and man oh man I wish I had known about these guys when the Third Wave was big in the late 90's. I would definitely put them up with Save Ferris for female-led band. Their harmonies are what really seals the deal for me. Sure, No Doubt had a similar sound but due to only one singer they couldn't pull it off live like on their record.

It's probably a long shot here but did anyone get a chance to see them live?

Many times. We toured with them on Warped tour back then. I didn’t really like that kind of music. But they pulled it off, well. The vocals always sounded just like they did on record. I remember talking to the guitar player quite a bit. He cited the police as his favorite band.

So far, their Live album is the one I enjoy the most. Tons of songs on it plus their live versions are really faithful to the recordings (something I personally enjoy out of a band). That's what I would choose.

That's really awesome.
