"It's like growing up with a tear in your eye and a storm brewing in your heart.." muses frontman Frankie McLaughlin on the musical heritage of the group. "We were raised on the Scottish and Irish music in our parents record collection, before colliding head-on with Punk Rock as we grew older and thought we knew everything."
These two immovable pillars define The Rumjacks above all else, as they continue to cut their own path through the tangled musical landscape before them. Their own brand of Celtic Punk has seen them release two EP's - 'Hung, Drawn and Portered' and 'Sound as a Pound' ('09), as well as three powerful full length albums - 'Gangs of New Holland' ('10), 'Sober and Godless' ('15), and 'Sleepin' Rough' ('16).
Since the bands inception in Sydney, Australia in late 2008 when McLaughlin met Bassist Johnny McKelvey, they have racked up millions of YouTube views, with over 24 million of these alone for their breakthrough track 'An Irish Pub Song'. Other stunning videos that capture the incredible live energy of the band include 'Uncle Tommy', 'Blows and Unkind Words' and 'Plenty', while 'Crosses for eyes' and 'Me Old Ball and Chain' see them hard at work in the studio.
The videos for 'Home', 'One Summers Day' weremade while The Rumjacks were on tour, and stand testament to the bands enormous appeal wherever they go.
Their incendiary live performances and seemingly endless touring regime has seen them share the stage with acts as diverse as Dropkick Murphys, The Interrupters, Anti Flag, CJ Ramone, The Real McKenzies, Gogol Bordello, Ruts DC, Guttermouth, GBH, UK Subs and The Aggrolites. "We're at home on any lineup in front of any crowd, I think there are elements of what we do that must appeal to just about anyone."
