“I’m so excited for everyone to hear the first Save Ferris single in almost 15 years and just in time for our US tour! It’s an honor to have my idol and friend Neville from the Specials on this one. And this is just the start! Welcome to the new sound!” - Monique Powell
A new start indeed! Save Ferris’ new EP marks a new era for the band as they start the next chapter of their storied career. Led by the inimitable frontwoman Monique Powell, Save Ferris is firing on all cylinders now with a renewed focus and rejuvenated spirit, a vibe that can be heard throughout the band’s new 5 song record.
"Recording our new 5 song EP, "Checkered Past", with John Avila (Oingo Boingo, Mariachi El Bronx, Reel Big Fish) was truly a fun and easy experience. John's comforting personality and his open heart, free of judgement, made every day in the studio something we all looked forward to. In tribute to the first Save Ferris album, this is also a 5 song EP. "Introducing Save Ferris", is my favorite album of ours. Knowing that, I wanted to capture that young spirit once again on a song or two on this new EP. There are 5 relatively different songs on this EP, each one representing the different musical personalities of Save Ferris. A little punk, a bunch of ska, both old and new, some sugary pop, a bit of my youth and a little edge. To top it off, "new sound" represents the future for Save Ferris. I'm hoping everyone likes this new EP, our first in over 15 years, as it was written just for you. Enjoy!" - Monique Powell
