About RX Bandits
RX Bandits were one of the biggest bands during the ska movement of the 1990s, along with bands like Save Ferris and Reel
Big Fish. The RX Bandits released their first album, "Those Damn Bandits" in 1997. They followed up with their next album
in 1998, "Halfway Between Here and There," which included tracks like "Ten Seconds Never Seemed So Long," "Wrong With Me,"
and "Andrea." The album was a success, and the RX Bandits embarked on a tour with other well-known bands at the time, like
Goldfinger, The Bloodhound Gang, New Found Glory, and Freakdaddy.
RX Bandits went on to release another record in 2001,
called "Progress," which produced the band's first music video for their song "Analog Boy." A couple of years later, the RX
Bandits released their first album to debut on the Billboard 200 chart, "The Resignation," which was a CD/DVD combo. This
album contained a more noticeably political tone as the band continued to expand and mature from their beginnings as simply
a ska band. Many of the instruments on the album were recorded live, with only a limited amount of takes. "Resignation" became
a favorite with fans, especially because it was accompanied by a DVD that included many live performances, interviews, and
RX Bandits' Breakthrough Album
Although the RX Bandits initially started out as a ska/punk
band, the songwriting talents of band member Matthew Embree would take the band to new levels and new genres. When the band
made their debut in 1997, they were a big hit on the burgeoning ska scene, especially in California's Orange County, which
was home to many other bands at the time. They continued to release records and tour all over, including appearances at the
Vans Warped Tour, Coachella, and Bonnaroo. By the time they had released their famous album, "Resignation," fans saw the band
take their music and values in another direction, with Matthew Embree writing more politically charged lyrics. The album was
a success, and it hit the number 5 position on the Top Heatseekers Chart. That same year, the RX Bandits joined the band Something
Corporate for a tour, and they later went on to play many headliner shows across the nation. Since the beginning, the RX Bandits
have always managed to make their mark and show that they weren't just part of the scene, but they offered something different.
Now this iconic band from the 90s is embarking on another tour, and you don't want to miss it!
