Ska ZombieWatch 2: SID Australia!

The zombie ska plague spreads Down Under with the Ska Is Dead Australia Tour!

This spin-off of the US Ska Is Dead franchise will feature a more international line-up (unless you consider The Toasters to be a Spanish band, since Buck is now based in Valencia?) with The One Night Band from Montreal, Canada, playing their brand of reggae and rocksteady; folk skankster Dan Potthast (ex-lead singer for MU330) from Santa Cruz, USA; and psycho ska band The Resignators from Melbourne, Australia.

This tour also coincides with the two-day Ska Nation festival.
