Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
It’s really the tail end of a year of touring in support of our latest album ‘Sober & Godless’. We toured Australia earlier in the year & have just returned from almost 40 shows across Europe, so it’s a sweet little way to finish up the year playing to home crowds again.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Bouillabaisse or gumbo.. If you keep fishing around in there you’re bound to find treasure.
Which song resonates most strongly and why?
Blows & Unkind Words seems to strike a chord with people everywhere we play, and its definitely a favourite of ours in the live set.
Have you been touring much? Any on the road anecdotes?
Like I said we are just back from Europe, where we went about introducing ourselves as ‘Man O War’.. It just got way funnier than it probably should have.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
Meeting our friends and supporters, and telling each other our stories & ideas. The madness of everyday life is more than enough to inspire a song or two.
What’s next for you?
A short break to catch our breath & hang with family & friends.Some great shows & festivals around the country early in 2016 before returning to Europe again in May.
What’s your scene?
‘We are Man O War’.. what’s YOUR scene?
About the Rumjacks
Sydney folk-punk band The Rumjacks are delighted to announce that their final shows of the year will be on home soil, as they treat fans to the ‘Home Rule’ East Coast tour across November/December.
Fresh from a hugely successful debut overseas tour where they played to more than 50,000 fans in the Northern Hemisphere over three months, and a stellar return performance at Bigsound Live, the band has never been more gig ready! They have earned a fearsome reputation for the strength and passion of their live shows, tearing up the stage and inspiring audiences with their raw energy.
‘Home Rule’ will give The Rumjacks an opportunity to further showcase tracks from their acclaimed current album ‘Sober & Godless’, as they gear up for a massive 2016 with new recording, many more Australian shows to be announced, a return to the UK & Europe, and further overseas touring.
