PR Newswire

NEW YORK, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- VNUE, Inc. (OTCQB:VNUE) will be recording all shows on the upcoming US tour with the classic 80's & 90's line up of Ska/Punk icons, Fishbone, and making the recordings available for download within minutes after the last note each night via VNUE's innovative set.fm mobile content delivery app and website.

With the classic 80's and 90's lineup of Angelo Moore (Vocals, Sax, Theramin), John Norwood Fisher (Bass, Vocals), Walter "Dirty Walt" Kibby (Vocals, Trumpet), Phillip "Fish" Fisher (Drums), John Bigham (Guitar), and Chris Dowd (Keyboards, Trombone, Vocals) now firmly in place after more than twenty years, Fishbone is on a mission to reclaim their rightful spot amongst the most elite and influential bands to come from LA in decades. 2018 is proving to be the year of a major return for Fishbone with a full touring schedule including headline dates, festivals, and shows in The Netherlands, Japan and UK.

Founded in 1979, Fishbone set the ska/punk standard with their 1983 self-titled release which included fan favorites "Party at Ground Zero," and "Ugly." Their 1988 groundbreaking, genre-defying and critically acclaimed full length "Truth and Soul" took the band to extraordinary heights and began their undeniable influence on dozens of bands to come. Fishbone has since released nine albums, and in 2010, a critically acclaimed documentary written and directed by Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, and narrated by actor Laurence Fishburn, entitled "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone." The documentary was released and premiered at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival and rekindled a spark in Fishbone devotees the world over.

"It's absolutely unreal, at this stage of the game," stated bassist and founding member, Norwood Fisher. "To be reunited as brothers and bandmates! The band feels as if it's almost firing better than ever. We're all equally excited to get on the grind and bring this energy to the stage for those that have supported us throughout our career, the Whirl'd Wide Familyhood." Fisher continued, "What makes this even more exciting is our partnership with VNUE and their Set.fm instant live recording tech. We are stoked to be working with VNUE and have our fans far & wide take home the good vibes."

"When you talk about the most iconic and influential bands to bust out of LA in the 80's & 90's – bands who really shaped things for so many other others to come, Fishbone must be at the top of that conversation," stated Jeff Zakim, Vice President of Business Development & Content Curation for VNUE. Zakim continued, "A Fishbone show is an experience, an event, a magical, sweaty and inspiring gathering, and we are thrilled to be able to 'Swim' with Fishbone and capture the emotion and energy of their performances and allow fans around the world to take the experience home with them."

Fans may pre-purchase the shows now by downloading the set.fm app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or by visiting http://bit.ly/fishbonelive. Also, a limited-edition collector's item "VIP Laminate with any two show recordings will be available for pre-sale, as well as at all shows on this tour.
