Reel Big Fish, voted Southern California’s best-looking and most radical band of cool dudes in a recent nationwide poll (OK we made that up…) will be releasing a new full length DVD this summer, titled, appropriately enough, Reel Big Fish Live! In Concert!
Reel Big Fish Live! In Concert! will be released July 21 on Rock Ridge Music for a very fan-friendly price.
The live concert DVD was filmed before a sold-out, hometown crowd at the Grove of Anaheim this past January and features 20 classic Reel Big Fish songs, as well as all of the hilarious in-between-song-banter-and-shenanigans that fans have come to expect.
Reel Big Fish has also lined up another killer summer tour for ‘09. The veteran ska-rock outfit will be hitting cities across America with 2-Tone legends
The English Beat and Orlando, FL-based reggae/ska punks The Supervillains.
Reel Big Fish front man Aaron Barrett says the band is amped to be touring with one of its musical idols. Barrett explains, “We are so excited to be playing with one of our favorite bands of all time and one of the biggest influences on our music!! We LOVE the English Beat. This tour is a dream come true for us!”
The English Beat front man Dave Wakeling responds, “I was thrilled many years ago to be invited to play at Reel Big Fish's first album release party, and we are thrilled again to be touring with them now that they are bona fide Skadfathers!”
The trek kicks off July 3rd in Royal Oak, MI. More dates are being confirmed daily and will be posted on www.myspace.com/reelbigfish.
Southern California fans can also catch Reel Big Fish at BuFest in Malibu, CA on Sunday, May 31 with MXPX and Unwritten Law.

Formed in the suburban garages of Orange County, CA in the early 90’s, Reel Big Fish has gone on to release 6 full-length studio releases, headline countless tours in North America (as well as Europe, Asia and Latin America) and amass combined sales of over a million albums. In other words: these guys are sort of a big deal.
