8KALACAS emerged from Orange County in 2003. Just a couple of friends jamming out and using their music as an outlet to speak about politics, struggles, and freedom.

Their potent blend of Latin-infused ska and hardcore eventually gave birth to the term “skacore”. The band – fueled by the concepts of hate, love, injustice, and life – have recorded 3 full-length albums, one EP and multiple compilations.

The band’s growing fanbase – the 8K Familia – has welcomed the band with open arms, allowing them to play all over the U.S. and multiple tours in Mexico.
