Step outside and put up your dukes cuz Montreal's blue-collar road-warriors The Beatdown are set to knock out their debut self titled full-length this summer!

This hardworking four-piece outfit has a deep and unyielding passion for roots reggae, ska and Jamaican music while adding their own elements of 60's soul delivered with a gritty and uncompromising punk rock ethic. Formed out of the ashes of the now legendary trad ska soul band The One Night Band, The Beatdown bring the heavy heavy reggae sound to the masses with their explosive recordings and energetic live shows. Although the band formed less than a year ago they have toured more than 10 countries sharing the stage with Vernon Maytone (The Maytones), The Slackers, The Planet Smashers, Chris Murray, U-Roy, Subb and The Johnstones just to name a few and have enjoyed top billing at the Montreal International Reggae Festival, Montreal Ska Fest and the Ottawa Ska Fest among others.

The self-titled record features twelve hard-hitting tracks of pure summer time goodness. Recorded over several months at Indygene studios by producer Alex Giguere (Planet Smashers, Staylefish, The One Night Band, The Real Deal, RDC, Mighty Stef), The Beatdown brought in some good friends and members of the ska elite to lend their talents to a few tracks. Josh Fuhrman (Planet Smashers , Kingpins) on tenor sax, Larry Love (One Night Band) on organ and Patty Tee (Kman & The 45s) on trombone round out this stellar recording.
