For many bands, the beginning of January is a time to regroup after spending much time on the road—but don’t tell that to Reel Big Fish. The Orange County ska outfit isn't wasting any time in kicking off the second leg of their Don’t Stop Skankin’ Tour while many are at home working on their New Year’s Resolutions. Though vocalist/guitarist Aaron Barret is the only member from the band’s salad days, this isn’t a glorified cover band hitting the road on the laurels of past glories. Instead, this version is slated to release Bloody Street, RBF's ninth studio effort. Despite the rotating cast of characters, this sextet’s upbeat brand of music will keep the bodies moving even if they’re still getting over the post-New Year’s lull.
