Mighty Mighty Bosstones

 

  • The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are a ska-core band from Boston, Massachusetts.
  • Formed in 1983, the Bosstones are credited with the creation of the ska-core genre, a form of music that mixes elements of third wave ska and hardcore punk. The band released seven full-length albums, three EPs and a live album while touring continuously before their announcement of a hiatus in December 2003. They reunited in the fall of 2007 and performed together for the first time in four years at Boston's Middle East club. The band has continued to perform at multiple live venues since.
  • In December 2007, the band released a compilation album, Medium Rare, their first release since the band reunited earlier that year.
  • On May 15, 2008, it was reported that the Bosstones would be doing a short US tour in July with the Dropkick Murphys. During the tour, the Bosstones made three stops at Boston Red Sox minor league ballparks. These stops were in Lowell, MA (July 10), Portland, ME (July 11), and Pawtucket, RI (July 12).
  • Recently, "Where'd You Go?" was featured as a playable song in Rock Band 2. The version used is a rerecording done by the Bosstones in 2008.
  • On Saturday, October 11, 2008, at their performance at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo, NY, the encore ended with the first ever performance of the song "Pirate Ship", a "Bosstones chestnut" as described by Dicky Barrett. This elusive track was found only on the double 10" pressing of the 1994 album Question the Answers (BIG RIG 102).
  • On October 20, 2008, their website announced that they will play an 11th Hometown Throwdown on December 26-29 at the Middle East Club in Cambridge, MA, at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT on Dec. 30 and a New Year's Eve show at Lupo's in Providence.
