Over the past decade The Simmertones have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading authentic ska and reggae bands. These nine South West musicians regularly get packed venues and festivals jumping with their exciting and infectious live sound.
The Simmertones' live shows have continued to reach new heights, with prestigious and well received appearances at The London International Ska Festival, Madness' House of Fun Weekender, The Looe Music Festival, Bestival and Camp Bestival.
The band are frequently played on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, particularly by Jo Whiley and Steve Lamacq, who have playlisted their songs ‘Run For Your Life’, 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' and ‘Dr Who’.
2018 will see the release of an eagerly awaited, brand new studio album entitled ’10 Feet Tall’. The Simmertones’ previous album 'Something For The Weekend?' won ‘Best Album’ at the South West Music Awards in 2013. The album received worldwide airplay, as well as rave reviews from Ruby Turner and members of The Specials and Madness.
