Ska enthusiasts everywhere, rejoice! The time for 4th wave ska is neigh. Seriously, I really do think that 4th wave ska is going to make an appearance in 2019. Particularly if bands like Legal Disaster are going to be leading the charge. This ska-core band hits you in the face with all the classic sounds you’ve grown accustomed to in ska waves 1 through 3. Legal Disaster is a healthy mix of cynicism and joyful apathy. There are a couple of bangers on their latest EP Drugged on War that really grabbed my attention right away. I truly think that their song “We Are the USA” perfectly encapsulates the exact “WTF” feeling I’ve felt since I first realized jet fuel can’t melt steel beams. Honorable mention to “Cigarettes”, it’s got everything; a voice over, anecdotal life advice, and a blatant disregard for said common sense. Check them out below.
