Biography :

Hub City Stompers hail from the “hub city” of New Brunswick, NJ. The band was founded and formed by Rev Sinister, former vocalist/frontman for NJ Ska band Inspecter 7. After i7 had gone into a dormant state in 2001, RevSin, still bloodthirsty for making and performing music, went on the hunt to form a new band and in the summer of 2002 HCS was born. In the wasteland of the seemingly “dead” ska scene of the time, these necromaniacs romanced ska’s rotted corpse, playing for the love of the music rather than the popularity of it, and formed a force to be reckoned with in the New Jersey music scene.

Embracing various styles and eras of ska from the 60’s through the 80’s, and adding reggae, punk, oi!, hardcore, and even hip-hop, jazz and classical influences, they manage to avoid a typical, formulaic ska sound and steer clear of cliche poppy ska lyrics.

Hub City Stompers’ line up consists of members & ex-members of bands such as Inspecter 7, Bigger Thomas, Professor Plum, Predator Dub Assassins, Bomb Town, and The Best Of The Worst.

Proudly roaming the no-man’s-land between the popular ska-core world and the elitist trad-ska world, Hub City Stompers choose to entertain and offend everyone equally and stick to their underground roots. Allied with all in this underground, they share the stage with ska, reggae, oi!, punk, and hardcore bands alike.

In August 2002 they debuted the song “Night of the Living” on the Jump Up/Megalith Records Still Standing ska compilation. They released their first full-length album, Blood, Sweat and Beers, in May 2004 on Megalith Records. Their self released Mass Appeal EP came out in July 2005. A studio recording of live-show-favorite “I’ve Got a Boot” was featured on the Megalith Records Sampler released in January 2006. Their second full-length album, Dirty Jersey, was released in December 2006 on Megalith Records. They released their Ska Ska Black Sheep CD in May 2009 on Stubborn Records. In August 2012 their song “Barking Up The Wrong Tree” was released exclusively on the This Is Not Dead four band compilation 7-inch (on This Is Not Dead Records). Their fifth album, Life After Death, was released on December 5, 2014. In November of 2015 they released the full length vinyl LP Caedes Sudor Fermentum (on Crowd Control Media) which featured several “best of” tracks from the first 3 Hub City Stompers albums. In April of 2018 they released their 6th CD “Haters Dozen” (Altercation Records).

In 2014, after a year long HCS hiatus due to an attempt to revive i7 by merging HCS & i7 and abandoning the HCS name, RevSin and the majority of the i7 line up decided to leave behind the Inspecter 7 name once and for all, and bring back Hub City Stompers for good.
Back in full effect since then, HCS is ready to bring their special brand of “dirty Jersey” Ska to all.
