The Interrupters is a ska/punk band from LA. The band’s genesis can be traced to 2009 when the brothers Bivona (Kevin, Justin, and Jesse) were in a group called the Telecaster and singer Aimee Allen was a solo artist. All were on tour supporting The Dirty Heads and Sugar Ray. When Kevin and Aimee began writing songs together, they decided to bring Justin and Jesse along for the ride and dubbed themselves the Interrupters.
Some early slots of national tours with well-known acts like Rancid helped the group’s exposure, and it wasn’t long before the recording studio beckoned. 2014 saw the release of the foursome’s eponymous debut, which generated lots of buzz on iTunes. The track “Take Back The Power" found its way into “Shameless” and Michael Moore’s Where To Invade Next.
The early association with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong also proved fruitful. He produced both of the band’s subsequent records, Say It Out Loud (2016) and Fight the Good Fight (2018). Kerrang named the latter its Album of the Week, and All Music called it “their best outing yet.”
