“Dynamo singer Aimee will cool you off with her gravelly chops and punky petulance.” – Billboard
“One of the catchiest, most fun modern ska-punk bands around.” – Brooklyn Vegan
"What an expressive and hypnotic voice! The deep-dark timbre gives the songs a form and an inimitable character. Chapeau!" - Legacy
“If the upbeat ska numbers don’t get you dancing round your house like no one’s watching then, frankly you have no soul.” - Vive Le Rock
Ska-punk band The Interrupters just premiered their new video for radio single “Gave You Everything” at YouTube. Aimee Interrupter explains, “’Gave You Everything’ is a celebration of the moment when you overcome heartbreak, and the person who hurt and betrayed you can’t hurt you anymore - and it’s a true story!”
Watch the video for “Gave You Everything” now:
As highlighted by Billboard, The Interrupters are the first female-fronted band with an Alternative Radio hit since No Doubt. Their song “She’s Kerosene” charted #5 at Alternative Radio in US, #1 Alternative in Canada, and #1 Modern Rock in Canada. The video for “She’s Kerosene” currently holds 7.5+ million streams at Spotify and 6.5+ million video views at YouTube.
In addition to their radio success, Fight the Good Fight debuted on the Billboard charts on first week release as #1 Heatseekers, #2 Independent Record Label Album, #5 Current Rock, and #5 Current Alternative Album. Additionally, Alt-Rock radio single is the #1 Most Added on Alternative Radio.
Fight the Good Fight was produced by longtime collaborator, Rancid frontman, and Grammy Award-winning producer Tim Armstrong with the band at Ship-Rec Recorders in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Grammy-award winning mixer Tom Lord-Alge (Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, Weezer).
The follow-up to 2015’s Say It Out Loud, Fight the Good Fight finds The Interrupters delivering their two-tone-inspired, powerfully melodic, punk-fueled sound with more vitality than ever before. With Armstrong and Alge at the helm, Aimee and the Bivona brothers channeled the raw energy of their lives shows by recording almost entirely to tape. “There’s a certain feeling you get from that process that you can’t really get digitally,” says guitarist Kevin. “There’s no overthinking anything—everyone’s got to be fully present and committed. It was definitely high-pressure, but also really fun.”
The Interrupters will be back this spring for a run of headline shows and festival dates. Tickets are on sale now.

Formed in 2011, The Interrupters came together when the Bivona brothers (guitarist Kevin Bivona, bassist Justin Bivona, drummer Jesse Bivona) found themselves on bills with Aimee during a 2009 tour. With their self-titled debut arriving in 2014, the band soon shared stages with bands like Rancid, Blink-182, and Bad Religion. The Interrupters embarked on a world tour in support of the release, headlining their own shows as well as supporting Green Day in Europe, Australia and South America, solidifying the band’s status as a dynamic force on the stage.
