Ska-P is a Spanish ska punk band formed in 1994 in Vallecas, a district of Madrid, by a group of friends from Madrid, Navarre and Euskadi
The band can be categorized, politically, as an anti-establishment musical group, sometimes even considered anarcho-communist.
Musically, despite their fun image, Ska-P has well-rehearsed and tight arrangements, and as of 2002, includes among its members a brass section.
At the end of 2004, they announced work on a new album. After voting 4 against 2, in February 2005, the sudden and unexpected announcement was made that the band would take a break to allow the members to work on side projects, though some considered the band to have dissolved. Their farewell concert on September 24, 2005, filled the 10,000-seat La Cubierta in Spain. The band's worldwide farewell tour of 2005 ended in Buenos Aires, Argentina in October of that year.
In October 2007 the band confirmed they were getting back together and in September 2008 released the single "Crimen sollicitationis". This was followed in October by a new album, Lágrimas y Gozos. The release of the album was followed by a brief tour.
