Every day is a celebration with Melbourne Ska Orchestra, but right now they really have a reason to party. Three years on from the release of their acclaimed debut album, the MSO have unveiled their eagerly anticipated sophomore effort, Sierra-Kilo-Alpha.

The album is set to drop on 22nd April and sees the band picking up where they left off, shining their horns and straightening their hats to bring their unique style of big-band ska music back to Australian ears and reminding us all of why we first fell in love with them.

Recorded at the ABC and Freeburgh studios in Melbourne during the winter of 2015, Sierra-Kilo-Alpha is a fresh ode to the past and a hint at the future, celebrating all the success that’s come the band’s way since they first unveiled their debut.

Having recently signed record deals in the US and the UK and with countless sold-out tours under their belt, the Melbourne Ska Orchestra is once again poised to dominate the year and no doubt Sierra-Kilo-Alpha is just a sign of things to come.
