Since 2000, La Resistencia have been cranking out a furious form of ska that is simultaneously uplifting and revolutionary. Unlike Orange County ska-style bands such as No Doubt, who were inspired by The Specials and Madness to make nostalgic dance music, La Resistencia are part of an ongoing wave of Latin ska-punk bands who take the same influences to fuel fierce, politically charged anthems of identity and social justice. With members based in Lynwood and South Gate, the group have always had a working-class perspective, and even the most ebullient, uptempo tracks from their upcoming album are paired with pointedly subversive lyrics. Like Tijuana No! and The Clash, La Resistencia often vary from the ska formula by mixing in heavier elements of punk and metal.
