The Inevitables is the new ska-punk supergroup and comic book series led by former/founding Less Than Jake drummer/lyricist Vinnie Fiorrello, Westbound Train's Obi Fernandez, and Big D and The Kids Table's Alex Stern, and it also features current and former members of Bomb the Music Industry!, The Interrupters, Reel Big Fish, and more. They released their self-titled debut album last year, along with the debut EP by their folk punk offshoot Who Will Meet Me At The Gates? (who exist inside The Inevitables' comic book universe), and now they've got a third project, The Inevitables versus Youth City Sound System, an album of dub versions of Inevitables songs created with Big D And The Kids Table's Jon Degen.
"Crafting the dub transitions for The Inevitables full length album was a super cool and unique challenge," Jon said. "Writing reggae riddims from the ground up to act as valleys in the mountains of a ska punk album just made so much sense. Getting to hear the interludes in real time on the album made me immediately hark back to skits on 90s hip hop records...De La Soul, Wu Tang..."
