The Takeaways Release Split EP With Hoser In Preparation For Weekend Tour

Bandcamp | Album Artwork | Hoser Takeaways SplitIn preparation for their weekend mini-tour of Massachusetts this weekend, the Takeaways have released a split EP with Philly punk band Hoser via Workin Class Horror Records. As the first half of the split, Hoser’s blues-flavored punk never really ventures into the ska spectrum. In contrast, The Takeaway’s half shows off a much more ska-oriented band, with the excellent title track from The City (released earlier this year) and the lo-fi “Fuck Life”, off 2012’s Over The Moon EP. Digital downloads of the EP are $3, while a limited edition cassette version is only $5. All proceeds go towards supporting these touring bands.

The first show of the tour is tonight at The Monkey Palace in Boston, with Wisconsin Ska-core band Atrocity Solution, Disco Pop-Punk band Uh-Huh, Hardcore band Spam, and local ska-punkers Poor Jeremy. All three shows in the tour are house shows, so check the dates/locations and message the band for addresses!
