A ska-punk outfit based in Madrid, Spain, Ska-P (the name a take on the Spanish word for escape) formed in 1994.
At times political and at other times humorous, Ska-P released their first album, the self-titled Ska-P, in 1994. From there, the left-leaning ensemble released a number of hit full-lengths, culminating in 2002's Que Corra la Voz. In 2005, Ska-P announced an open-ended hiatus so that members could focus on other musical directions and projects. A farewell show outside of Madrid on September 24 of that year sold more than 10,000 tickets. The hiatus came to an end in 2008, and a re-formed Ska-P released their sixth album, Lagrimas y Gozos in October of that year, and also embarked on a short tour. ~ Chris True, Rovi
