Omnigone, the brand new East Bay ska-punk outfit started by Adam Davis of Link 80 and featuring members of We Are The Union, Rx Bandits, Ogikubo Station, and Skatune Network, just dropped their long-anticipated debut album No Faith via Bad Time Records. The thirteen-track release is an evolutionary chart of all of the best parts of ska music we’ve seen grow and change over the past four decades that really showcases Davis’ skill as a musician and songwriter as well as his unflinching love for the genre. No Faith is written from the perspective of someone who has been making and playing punk music for more than twenty years, so there are a lot of complicated emotions tied up in these songs, but at the end of the day Omnigone’s central themes are rooted in positivity and gratitude. Is it the ska record we deserve in 2019? Maybe not, but it’s the one we need right now.
