The Hostiles are a ska-punk band from Ayr, Scotland, described byPunktastic.com as ‘upbeat, effervescent, bouncy and danceable’. Reflecting the transatlantic origins of the band members themselves, their sound introduces sunny US ska-punk to slamming Scottish ska-core, dragging the best of both of these musical worlds kicking and screaming onto the stage. The Hostiles’ live show is detonated by the meeting of these highly-combustible elements, underpinned by the two-pronged brass backbone of double trombone, and the band’s relentless drive to perform. Since releasing their debut album in 2009, The Hostiles have played hundreds of gigs and captured cult followings in Scotland, England and far beyond.

Reggae music from Dusseldorf, Germany? Not the sound that most people would associate with that
city. People familiar with today’s youth culture might default to images of Germany’s underground punk
movement. THE TiPS, however, began their musical journey within that scene and immediately
introduced elements of cozy reggae along with smooth soul into their hard driving punk songs. A
process which created their unique sound and style. Punks of all sub genres, however, continue to
follow their fellow travelers even while the band’s style has been quickly attracting a larger and more
diverse fan base. THE TiPS latest album, to be released on Long Beach Records Europe on February
19, 2016, stays true to their musical vision while taking a step further. TWISTS’N’TURNS honors THE
TiPS reputation as Germany’s seminal punk/reggae/rock band all-the-while branching out for the first
time to international markets.
