For the last few months we’ve been hard at work creating our most impactful and savage album to date. We’ve had the pleasure of working with producer and engineer Ben Kaplan, who’s own artistic mastery and creativity is heard in epic fashion throughout the record. LOOK OUT for our album release this spring and upcoming tour dates. ROCK N ROLLLLLL!!!
Five Alarm Funk will be playing the Global Music Festival in Kelowna, BC, Saturday February 22nd. The gig will be at the Laurel Packing House and tickets are only $15.
