London alt-ska band Imperial Leisure have released their new single “RRRRRollin” and have hit the road in support of the ten year anniversary of the release of their debut record The Art of Saying Nothing. Like a lot of British bands, six-piece come from humble beginnings born out of school friendships and over the years they’ve evolved their musical style that’s a fun-loving throwback to the ska-2-tone era. While they have evolved over the years, the band have always stuck true to their reputation for delivering high energy and fun as hell live performances. Musically, Imperial Leisure draw from The Specials, Roots Manuva, Less Than Jake, and Youngblood Brass Band to Rage Against the Machine and The Streets.
Taking influences from all around, the music is a fun-loving throwback to the ska-2-tone era combined with more recent punk rock-hip hop sounds. This is an ambitious and adventurous band that’s never been predictable and always well-liked for their maximum effort. They are currently on tour in support of the ten year The Art of Saying Nothing anniversary. Check out the song at the below dates in England!
