Reel Big Fish

Reel Big Fish was one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-'90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. Like most of their peers, the band was distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. The group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream in summer 1997, when their single "Sell Out" became a modern rock radio and MTV favorite. Their appearance in the movie "Baseketball" as the halftime band also gained them more fans and helped the bands popularity to grow. Still fronted by original lead singer and song writer Aaron Barrett, they continue releasing albums and touring relentlessly, playing more and more countries and bigger venues all over the world. isabella soprano cathouse and couple isabella soprano cathouse and couple chilindrina costume template chilindrina costume template godfather sayings baptismodfather sayings godfather sayings baptismodfather sayings monster energy bedroom monster energy bedroom sharks lagoon priv box accounts sharks lagoon priv box accounts free dubstep maker no download free dubstep maker no download
Reel Big Fish recorded its self-released debut album, "Everything Sucks", in 1995. "Everything Sucks" became a word-of-mouth underground hit in ska-punk and college circles, which gave the band enough leverage to sign with the indie label Mojo Records. The label's president, Jay Rifkin, and former Oingo Boingo bassist John Avila co-produced "Turn the Radio Off", which marked Reel Big Fish's first album for Mojo. "Turn the Radio Off" was unleashed in August 1996, and over the next year, the group continually toured in support of the album's release, expanding their fan base all the while. In spring 1997, the single "Sell Out" began receiving heavy airplay from several influential modern rock stations in the U.S., which soon translated into MTV support for the song's quirky video. By summer, the song had become a moderate modern rock hit, and the album had charted in the Top 100.

In 1998 the song "Take on Me" from the "Baseketball" motion picture soundtrack was released as the promotional single for the movie and once again found the band in regular rotation on rock radio and MTV in the USA.

The Album "Why Do They Rock So Hard" followed a year later, once again enlisting Oingo Boingo Bassist John Avila as producer. The album was not as commercially successful but is still regarded by many fans as the bands finest work. The band filmed a music video for "the Set up (You Need This)", the only single released from this album.

The guys wound up on Jive Records in fall 2001 when their current label, Mojo, was bought by Jive's parent label, Zomba. Reel Big Fish's first release for Jive, a more rock-oriented record entitled "Cheer Up!", appeared in mid-2002. This album was very successful in Europe with the video for the single "Where Have You Been" receiving heavy airplay on many music video channels.

The band's next album, the cynical yet catchy "We're Not Happy 'Til You're Not Happy", was issued in April 2005. Touring continued for the rest of the year, and Reel Big Fish happily parted ways with Jive in January 2006, having wished to be dropped from the label since the "Cheer Up!" release.

In August 2006, the group self-released a double-disc live CD (along with an accompanying DVD) titled "Our Live Album Is Better Than Your Live Album". A few months later — and much to the annoyance of the band — Jive issued its own Reel Big Fish album, a best-of compilation entitled "Greatest Hit…and More". Reel Big Fish received no money from the album's sales, as Jive Records now owned the rights to the bulk of their songs. The band has urged fans not to buy this album because it was not approved by them and the sound quality is inferior.

Nevertheless, the band returned with some new material in February 2007, splitting an EP "Duet All Night Long" with their friends in Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer. "Monkeys for Nothin' and the Chimps for Free" followed several months later, marking Reel Big Fish's first full-length studio release since leaving Jive's roster, and 2009′s "Fame, Fortune and Fornication" found the band covering songs by the likes of Poison, the Eagles, and Tom Petty.

The band's latest release is called "A Best of Us for the Rest of Us". It includes a 22 song disc of re-recorded hits and classic fan favorites as well as a bonus disc of 14 Acoustic or "SKAcoustic" versions.

On July 31st, 2012 Reel Big Fish release their 7th studio album, Candy Coated Fury (Rock Ridge Music), an inspired and infectiously catchy return to the hyperkinetic ska and biting wit of the band's beloved early albums. "This album is a lot like our first two albums. It's got a lot of the same intensity, frantic energy in the music, and the same sarcastic sense of humor. I think these are the fastest songs we've done since those albums," Aaron Barrett, founding vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter says. "We're finally just doing what Reel Big Fish does best, and that's what we did on those first two albums."

"Candy coated fury pretty much describes what Reel Big Fish does," Barrett says of the significance of the new album's title. "It's hateful, mean, sarcastic, and, sometimes sad lyrics, over happy, wacky, silly, joyous, fast music that makes you want to dance. This album is mostly love songs, but bitter, angry, hateful love songs. Just about everybody knows what it's like to be in a bad relationship. These songs could be sung by a 15 year old about his first love-gone-wrong, or by a 55 year old about a bitter divorce after 30 years. They're bad-relationship songs that everybody can relate to."

Candy Coated Fury is Reel Big Fish's first album of newly recorded original material in five years. Overall, it's the seventh in the band's twenty year history, and it feels as vital and vitriolic as RBF's foundational releases. The record opens with the huge sing-along vocal, balmy horns, and hyperactive ska groove of "Everyone Else Is An Asshole." The track is an exceptional distillation of Reel Big Fish's classic euphorically-juvenile ska punk. The stately arena riffs in "I Dare You To Break My Heart" reference cock rock, new wave, and soul without sacrificing one iota of RBF's signature simmering skank. "I listen to the Darkness a lot; it was only a matter of time till I wrote a song like this! I can't really sing as high as that guy so this song sounds more like Kiss, if Kiss was a Motown band that played ska," Barrett says, detailing the song's diverse stylistic touchstones. The anthemic "I Know You Too Well To Like You Anymore" features some of Barrett's finest cutely cruel lyrics. "I think that is an amazing bad-relationship song," he laughs. "I really captured the hateful love of two people who were once madly in love, but have been together so long, they can't stand the sight of each other anymore but still say 'they drive me crazy, and I hate this and this about them, but I love them.'" No RBF album would be complete without playfully irreverent 1980s covers. The band rounds things out ska-ifying the Wonderstuff's "Don't Let Me Down Gently" and When In Rome's "The Promise."

Reel Big Fish continues to tour non-stop, playing over 250 shows a year to thousands of loyal fans all over the world, gaining more and more underground popularity as the Ska scene continues to flourish.
