Save Ferris to return after a long absence

Orange County ska-punk band Save Ferris will return in 2017 with their first new EP and headlining North American tour in over 15 years. The band will release the New Sound EP, on February 10th, which also marks the start of their tour.

Still led by original member Monique Powell, Save Ferris recently opened for No Doubt and Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

"Since this incarnation of Save Ferris first played together in 2013, the band and I have been working on new music, arranging schedules and selectively playing local shows to get ready for a tour. I have had to tell our fans to 'be patient, I promise it'll happen' for too long now! But now here we are. I can't believe we've made it this far....and now you get to see us in a town near you. For the first time in 15 years, Save Ferris is coming to get you! Are you ready?" - Monique Powell

For the EP, Save Ferris has called on fans directly to help fund the recording and release via a PledgeMusic campaign. The band is currently offering supporters a unique VIP experience that includes a soundcheck party, Q&A, meet & greet and photos with the band, as well as signed CDs, tote bags, signed certificates, pin sets, signed photos, a listening party and more.

Produced by Oingo Boingo bassist John Avila, New Sound not only marks Save Ferris' return, but as the title suggests, it also signals a new beginning for the band. After splitting with former band mates, Powell has embraced her ska and dub roots while moving forward with a contemporary sound.
