DS Exclusive: Stream the Hempsteadys new album, “Séance! Séance!”

We’re excited to bring you the exclusive stream of ska/punk small army The Hempsteadys, newest album, “Séance! Séance!” The eleven-piece group has more people than I can fit in my apartment (at least without an awful lot of dismemberment, that, frankly, I don’t have the energy for) and hails from New London, Connecticut.

“Séance! Séance!” is the Hempsteadys’ sophomore album, and if you like big, loud, ska with touches of the Clash & Bouncing Souls tempered with reggae beats, you should definitely check out the stream below. The album will be released August 1st and can be purchased at bandcamp.

The Hempsteadys first album was 2015’s “El Amor de Los Muertos.”

It is not known if there will be more shows or new material under the Tilt name, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on their future come to light. The band last released the compilation album, Been Where? Did What?, in 2001 through Fat Wreck Chords.
