Bio

Steel City Allstars are a 7 piece Ska Punk band from the surrounding suburbs of Wollongong NSW Australia. Playing anything from 3rd wave ska, reggae, fast punk topped with fat horn lines. Melodic lyrics of unity, home town tributes, drunken adventures and general daily grind. SCA aim to please the ears of all listeners. SCA was founded by Val Shoukry (ex Lost in Line) in late 2008. After a few minor line up changes and finding a stable timetable to work around, they were ready to record their first EP titled "Wish You Were Her", which was released in December 2009. SCA have played several shows in Wollongong, Sydney and Melbourne with some great Australian and international bands, in the process, SCA have broadened their fan base, constantly networked, and generally met and befriended some really awesome people along the way. In May of 2012, SCA began the long and tiring process of recording their first full length album. The album is a celebration of the past 2 years of SCA and everything in-between.
