Question The Answers

Question The Answers Podcast: Episode #28 – Audio Karate

Audio Karate have proven that a long break between albums it not always such a bad thing.

Audio Karate made waves as members of the Kung-Fu Records roster back the 90s/early 00s. During their initial run from 1995-2005, they released two full-length albums and toured heavily to support those releases with the likes of The Vandals, Tsunami Bomb, and more in the U.S., Europe and Japan.

After this initial break, members of Audio Karate went on to start the Indie-Rock band Indian School, releasing the album The Cruelest Kind in 2012.

Fast-forward to 2018, the band announced that they were going to be re-issuing their debut album Space Camp via Wiretap Records/Hidden Homes along with a string of shows with The Descendents and appearances at Fest. Not long after that, they announced a new album, Malo, which was released via A-F Records/SBAM/Wiretap Records. Additionally, they recently self-released a re-issue of their sophomore effort, Lady Melody, to much fanfare.

On this episode, we discuss their time as a band and what it was like to come back after such a long break. We discuss their experience being a Chicano band and why they chose to self-release their latest vinyl reissue. And they give me their 5 desert island albums.
