The Pietasters, Sure Taste Sweet!

The Pietasters first break came early for D.C’s ska darlings in
1997, when Rancid’s Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion)
The genre-defining Willis (SPIN Magazine called it; an equal opportunity dancehall crasher; part 60s keg rock, part 2 Tone and part Motown.
Awesome Mix Tape #6 (CMJ noted it for; lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms. The soul- charged Turbo was released in 2002 by Fueled Ramen.
The Pietasters shared bills with NOFX and Less Than Jake on the epic Warped Tours, and followed with a stateside run with Joe Strummer. 3 years later, they worked as James Brown’s back-up band for one surreal and historic evening.
With over 200,000 past sales under The Tasters belts, Rockers Revolt now proudly presents their first new album in five years. The Pietasters- All Day, which captures superbly the high energy, brotherly camaraderie and attention to detail on which they’ve built their rock-steady name as an explosive live attraction.
Expect a soul & ska rollercoaster ride from the band that backed James Brown!
