Lancashire Two Tone revivalists Ska Face HQ have released a new single.

The Law is on sale online ahead of their return to Preston’s 53 Degrees on Saturday, August 30.

The lively act has supported legends The Selecter and Bad Manners and are playing on the same bill at Bruce Foxton’s From The Jam next month.

The debut, self-penned single from the 10-piece band from Blackpool – who have a combined age of more than 450 years – is a leap of faith for the band.

With ages ranging between 23 and 72 they are old enough to know better, yet young and foolish enough to attempt to re-write the 
rulebook and enjoy music with the passion and honesty that it was designed for.

Formed in 2010, Ska Face enjoy every minute with an infectious stage show of power, energy and classic tunes that you just have to dance to.

This single, written by the enigmatic Tony Montana with brass arrangement from Manny Ribera, sees the Rude Boys looking to venture beyond northern venues, having recently supported 2 Tone and British Ska legends The Beat, The Selecter and Bad Manners.

The legendary Rico Rodriguez has praised the band’s “heavy riddim section” when he first performed with the guys back in 2011.

Former Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation has also accompanied the boys on stage regularly since 2011 and 2 Tone Records founder member.

And former Specials leader Jerry Dammers was highly impressed with the energy and authenticity of the Ska Face performance when he joined them for a gig in June 2013.

Support comes from The Strange Tenants, who describe themselves as “the godfathers of Australian ska”.

53 Degrees: Saturday, August 30.

Tickets: £7.
