High Energy

Brass Fuelled Ska Punk

SPAWN is a high energy brass fuelled Ska Punk band from the Netherlands, keeping the beat rocksteady and the upstrokes a-skankin’. In October 2016, SPAWN released “Dance of the Lunatics”.

Since releasing “Dance of the Lunatics”, SPAWN have featured on many Dutch, English and American radio shows. “This is so much fun. You’re gonna love this. Mega riffs, Killer beats and some serious funk. Fuuuunk!” [Soundsphere magazine, 2016]

The new album opened new doors and the ‘Dance of the Lunatics Tour’ has energized many clubs, pubs and festivals.

With their third album, they’ve definitely found the groove and locked it down. ‘Dance of the Lunatics’ is a huge, bouncing, sweaty dance machine perched on 14 legs and having the time of its life.

It never ends

SPAWN was formed in 2001 as a punk trio. Adding a trumpet player in 2002 and a saxophone player in 2004, at that time the band switched to playing ska music with a punky twist. “SPAWNTANEOUS” was released in 2005 (album of the month at the National Pop Institute). Their music video “Spam” was broadcast by MTV Networks for several weeks, earning the band national exposure. “HOSDROPLOS” was released in 2008, gaining access to major Dutch venues like Paradiso and Zwarte Cross Festival.

Having played hundreds of shows, Ska Punk band from the Netherlands SPAWN know how to get the party started and going. Going strong for more than 20 years, still here to stay.
