Stop The Presses

Brief History



Stop the Presses is ska/reggae with a retro-pop and new-wave persuasion from Brooklyn, NY. Stop the Presses is the brain child of Ali Culotta and Danny Portilla. Their story begins back in 2010 like most bands at that time..., through a myspace ad.

They released their first EP “Does it Still Look Pretty” in 2011. After years of touring all over Florida, releasing their second album “Eskandalo” in 2013, and playing at the Vans Warped Tour in 2014, the two Florida natives packed up their van and relocated to Brooklyn, NY. In 2018, Stop the Presses made their long awaited return at the Van’s Warped Tour in Holmdel, NJ gaining them recognition in the North East ska scene.

A year later they released “Money in the Bank” co-produced by Agent Jay of The Slackers, and went on a US national tour with 'reggae-core' legends The Pilfers in 2019. Stop the Presses is heading out this March for the Spring BROKE 2020 East Coast Tour. Catch the Presses at Pouzza Fest and Supernova 2020. Stop the Presses' sound can be defined as a little bit two-tone, a little bit new wave, and a little bit traditional ska.
