Save Ferris Returns To the Road

After more than 15 years Save Ferris is finally releasing new music and it is taking the fresh tunes on tour once more, this time with Baby Baby and Vista Kicks supporting select dates.

The band recently started a Pledge campaign to crowdfund its newest musical project. The good news is  that the band has already raised 153 percent of its goal, and the upcoming EP, New Sound, is due out in January.

The first tour date is Feb. 10 in Santa Barbara, Calif., at Velvet Jones. The run continues around the U.S. and comes full circle, eventually ending in Anaheim, Calif., March 26. Vista Kicks will be playing on the West Coast shows and Baby Baby will perform on the East Coast.

“Since this incarnation of Save Ferris first played together in 2013, the band and I have been working on new music, arranging schedules and selectively playing local shows to get ready for a tour,” frontwoman Monique Powell said in a statement. “I have had to tell our fans to ‘be patient, I promise it’ll happen’ for too long now! But now here we are. … For the first time in 15 years, Save Ferris is coming to get you!”

This incarnation of Save Ferris is mostly newcomers except for Powell. One reason for the delay in new music was legal conflicts between Powell and former band members. Those seem to have been resolved now and the 8-piece ska band is ready to hit the road.

The band already co-headlined Ska Fest in Mexico City with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones earlier this year and has one more gig planned in Bandung, Indonesia, Nov. 27.
