The group has been a tear lately -- as evidence by the fact that they just wrapped up their two weekend performances at this year's Coachella festival!

The last time we had through town was when they were one of the marquee names on 91x's Scallywag festival last October, along with Rancid, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake and more. (Aimee pictured)

A little history on 'em: The Bivona brothers met Aimee in 2009 (she was a solo artist at the time), while their prior band Telacasters were on tour with Dirty Heads and Sugar Ray.

In 2011, they started writing songs together and in 2014, the Interrupters released their self-titled debut album on Hellcat/Epitaph Records.

Its lead single "Take Back the Power" was featured in commercials for T-Mobile, the Showtime series "Shameless," MLB's 2016 Home Run Derby, and Michael Moore's film "Where to Invade Next." (Kevin Bivona pictured)

They followed that up with a sophomore record titled "Say it Out Loud" in 2016, produced by Tim Armstrong -- peaking near the top of several Billboard charts upon its release.

Last year, they dropped their latest studio album "Fight the Good Fight" and its lead single "She's Kerosene" jumped to No. 4 of the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. (Kevin Bivona pictured right)

The band has made a habit out of converting anyone who sees 'em live in concert -- they put on incredibly energetic shows and it's clear that they're all having so much fun. It's infectious!

What a great time -- come back soon, Interrupters!
