Ska Lives and Indie Vision Music presents… “Ska Lives Vol. 3″! Our latest compilation featuring some of the greatest indie Ska artists from around the globe! Download below.

Our previous compilations “Ska Lives Vol. 1″ and “Ska Lives Vol. 2″ have been enjoyed by thousands of fans around the world, and featured a variety of different types of Ska, from Traditional Ska, to Two Tone, Third Wave, Ska-core, Punk with Horns, Reggae, and just about any other variation of the Ska genre that you can imagine!

“Ska Lives Vol. 3″ follows in this tradition, featuring a wider variety of music that ever before, as well as new music from veteran artists such as The O.C. Supertones, The Insyderz, and CodeName: Rocky, as well as up-and-coming artists such as May Weather, The Anchorage, and Sounds of Salvation!

The album also features a special unreleased track recorded by The Dingees’ original lineup! We truly believe that this is our best compilation yet!

    For some reason the song Jamaican Celebration isn’t tagged right.. who is the artist?


  2. Brandon J. says:

    Everyone hold off on downloading this for a few minutes. Wait till I give the go ahead. Had to delete the mediafire download and I am reloading it right now. I have to fix the conversioninabox code too. So just be patient with us. I’ll give the go ahead in a few minutes.

      Thanks for all of your work on this Brandon! Any news on the download?

    • Brandon J. says:

      It’s all ready now. Just fixed everything. If anyone received an email from conversioninabox pre-10am PST, please disregard it and resubmit your info into the form and try again. I had to re-upload the file to mediafire because one of the artist tags was wrong. It also means that the previous link in the emails from last night till pre-10 am are no longer valid. Sorry for any inconvenience. Its all good now.
