Save Ferris is a ska-punk band formed in Orange County, California circa 1995. Lead by the inimitable front-woman Monique Powell, the band enjoyed mainstream success in the late 1990s with radio hits, constant touring and appearances on a variety of television shows and movies including 10 Things I Hate About You.
After almost fifteen years, Save Ferris will make their long awaited return to the music scene in 2017. Following a successful PledgeMusic campaign, the band’s new EP - Checkered Past - will be released on February 10th. The EP, produced by Oingo Boingo bassist John Avila, embraces Monique’s ska and dub roots and also features a guest appearance by Neville Staple of the Specials on the first single “New Sound.”
February 10th also marks the start of the band’s first full tour of the United States. The tour will take the band’s energetic show around the country starting in Santa Barbara and finishing at the new House of Blues in Anaheim, California with support from Vista Kicks on the West Coast and Baby Baby on the East Coast.
"Since this incarnation of Save Ferris first played together, the band and I have been working on new music, arranging schedules and selectively playing local shows to get ready for a tour. I have had to tell our fans to 'be patient, I promise it'll happen' for too long now! But now here we are. I can't believe we've made it this far....and now you get to see us in a town near you. For the first time in 15 years, Save Ferris is coming to get you! Are you ready?”
