You can see a ska show at any point in the year, but there is something about seeing Reel Big Fish outside in the summertime. The combination of sunshine, Hawaiian shirts, horns and upbeat songs goes together so well.

A few years prior, I had the pleasure of talking to then-drummer Ryland Steen about Candy Coated Fury. Since then, they have put out an EP of holiday-inspired songs Happy Skalidays. This time, I spoke to Derek Gibbs (bass) about releasing Happy Skalidays on gold vinyl, future recording plans (and difficulties complicating that), future tours and the hot sauces that they just released.
