Bio

Jobstopper are a six piece Ska/Punk Rock band, from Cairns in Far North Queensland. Forming in 2010, Jobstopper quickly made a mark in the far north, with high-energy stage antics and tight musicianship.

In 2012 Jobstopper released their first EP, ''These Ones'', to welcome ears on Triple J's Short.Fast.Loud and landed themselves an entire east coast tour, in support of Melbourne ska band, The Resignators.
With live shows that often included ''mass crowd participation'' and some controversial turn points, the bands reputation soon gained them plenty of support spots for touring acts, such as Frenzal Rhomb, The Living End, Frank Turner, Violent Soho and The Smith Street Band.
Soon after, the band hit the studio once more, tracking their next E.P, ''Demolistenderby''.

More recently, Jobstopper have been putting the final touches on their debut, self-released album, ''It Was Like That When We Got Here''.
The album, recorded at Big Sister Studios (The Medics, Emma Louise) and produced by Roger Lima (Less Than Jake, The Dopamines), is a 12 track blend of angst filled punk rock and poppy ska melodies, sure to get stuck in your head for days.

In celebration of the album's release, Jobstopper are hitting the road in 2016 on their very first national, headline tour; ''It Was Like That When We Toured There!

I said at the start of this year that 2016 is going to be the year ska returns, and it's songs like this that I will use as examples every time. Soooooooo good. *Skanks around the living room*

Can vouch for Jobstopper as a heaps fun live band. Thumbs up from me for flying the checkered flag: if you're a fan of The Bennies, this might be for you.
