Continued news about Ska Is Dead; pre-order and guesses as to the artists

cover-ska-is-deadYesterday, after posting news regarding Underground Communique‘s returning Ska is Dead single series, they posted some more solid details, as well as some hints as to what you can expect.

Like the last series, there will be three 7-inches on black vinyl and three 7-inches on color vinyl (last year, it was white), and they’ll ship in three monthly installments of two 7-inches each, starting in July. Pre-orders start at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Friday, May 25 via the Ska Is Dead store.

And now, your hints as to who will be in this series, with my guesses after:

reunion bands
that STUBBORN guy
more international bands
solo stuff from several members of the Slackers
a band who made a SHIT-TON of money via Kickstarter.
two of the bands from the UnderComm/Asbestos Kickstarter series

Reunion bands: Could be Madness, English Beat, or the Specials, but that’s pretty unlikely. Maybe Suicide Machines, since Asbestos released that double LP last year.
Stubborn guy: King Django, who runs Stubborn Records and fronts the Stubborn All-Stars.
International bands: Could be any band currently on the scene. El Bosso & Die Ping Pongs, El Gran Miercoles, Rubén López & The Diatones … who knows?
Slackers solo members: Agent Jay and Dave Hillyard, most likely.
Band that made a shit-ton on Kickstarter: Five Iron Frenzy. Duh — $207,980 pledged for a $30,000 goal? Goal met in less than an hour (to say nothing of $80,000 in one day).
Two UnderCom/Asbestos Kickstarter bands: Pietasters, Pilfers, Edna’s Goldfish, and/or Spring Heeled Jack.
