Fubar’s newest record “State Of Mind” delivers an eclectic mix of reggae-rock, punk rock, and ska culminating in a style all their own. After permanently incorporating their own horn section in 2019, the band has grown exponentially in sound and performance.
Since forming in a garage in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA in 2011, Fubar has released 2 studio albums and several EPs. They’ve taken their music all around the local and regional areas creating a name for themselves in the reggae rock and diy punk communities. Through the years they had the opportunity to play the final Pittsburgh stop of the Vans Warped Tour in addition to sharing the stage with the likes of Authority Zero, HR (of the Bad Brains), The Toasters, Ballyhoo!, Tropidelic, Bumpin Uglies, The Movement, and many more.
“Dave and I both played and listened to a lot of punk rock in high school but back when we started Fubar we found a mutual love for Sublime” says vocalist/guitarist Jake Hursh.
“Some of us cut our teeth in pop punk scenes in the early 2010’s and some of us are into hip hop, so there’s a huge array of influences and backgrounds between members. It always makes the writing process exciting” adds Alto Sax player Sam Wtorkowski.
“FUBAR are standing out as a band who are changing the rules entirely, and knowing when and where to break them.“Jammerzine
