The Frightnrs To Release Single on Daptone!

The Frightnrs, who play an amazing mix of rocksteady, reggae, and rub-a-dub and are one of my favorite bands on the NYC ska/reggae scene (they hail from Queens, like The Ramones!), are releasing a new single--a phenomenal cover of Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" backed with a dub version by Victor "Ticklah" Axelrod--on Daptone Records on June 30, 2015. You can pre-order the single here (in addition to standard black vinyl, there's a limited edition of 100 copies on translucent orange wax for the collectors--I've ordered mine!).

For some background on The Frightnrs, check out The Duff Guide to Ska reviews of some of their previous releases: The Frightnrs six-track EP and the four-track 12/21/12 EP. Both are highly recommended.
