Kildare based band THE HACKLERS have developed their own distinguished sound, a mix of Ska and Reggae blended with their own unique ‘Extra Stout’ Irish flavour.
Their first album ‘Between the lines’ was released on Contra Records in 2015 to much appraise. Having taken their sound to stages and major festivals across Europe, sharing the stage with Bad Manners, The Beat and The Selector to name just a few, The Hacklers are firmly flying the flag for original Irish Ska.
