To all our dear friends here & across the miles, its been way too long as they say between drinks, first round for the weekend's ours as we say cheers to you, with the first single and video from our new album, its called ‘Blows & Unkind Words’.. please enjoy responsibly ;) 

WATCH NEW VIDEO HERE: (click image to view) 

Blows & Unkind Words is the first single from The Rumjacks second album 'Sober & Godless' which is set for release early 2015. 

Calling out ‘Adults’ on their shitty childish behaviour toward one another, especially in the age of Social Media where courage is not a prerequisite. Our beautiful world is going to Hell around our ears and most of us can’t get past name calling and melodrama, much less tackle anything more serious than opening a packet of crisps. Get up, get real & get on with it.



Enjoy, and see you at a show very soon,

The Rumjacks.

Good day to all & sundry,

This week catches us in the middle of a short run of shows in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne, with one down & two to go. We learned that it actually does get cold in QLD, who’d have thunk it?

The reception at The Joynt, though was BLISTERING! Deadweight Express & Bare White Knuckles doing a fine job of prepping the punters for our set. It was great to see so many Rumjack veterans and welcome more than a few freshies, the new guy’s keen to prove their worth by defying the ‘No Mosh’ rule in place on the night.. Respect!

We took the opportunity to field test a few new tunes, and after witnessing the beautiful mayhem first-hand, our very capable Producer has given us his Sagely nod.. We are now locked in & confirmed to go ahead and record a massive new album in a few short weeks!!!

We’ll each prepare for recording in our own unique way. One will go bowling in Las Vegas, one will visit a Buddhist temple, another will climb trees, one will cut firewood & brew chai while another will play surrogate father to a pair of Chihahuas – Who said all the Rock & Roll Danger-boys are dead?!!

Prior to that we still have 2 shows at The Teagardens Hotel in Sydney on the 10th and at The Bendigo Hotel on the 16th, so come on out & get messy with us before we go into lockdown.

Get ‘em in!..

G’day to all our good friends from wherever you may hail.

We’re all absolutely cracklin’ with excitement at the way this year’s shaping up for us. Firstly, we’ve all slugged it out behind closed doors with the help of our producer, to decide which songs will make the cut for our new full length album. We’re now ready to march into the studio & nail them once & for all.

In the meantime though, we’ve also been able to log a few shows up & down the country. The Townie in Sydney played host to a family reunion of sorts in March, when we shared the bill with our old mates Handsome Young Strangers. It was screamer! And good to see so many new heads among the loyal support.

May see’s us tearin’ up to Brisbane for one night only, as well as a one of show in Melbourne shortly after that. We’ll be joined by a handful of great bands and we’re looking forward to catchin’ up with interstate mates along the way.

Apart from a new album , keep an eye out for a whole new range of killer merch to be rolled out over the coming weeks & months including limited release vinyl copies of “Gangs of New Holland.”

Once all that’s done & dusted though, we’re reckoning on some pretty extensive touring  – your support has been amazing and the least we can do is get around to you all & say thanks.

We’ll make a proper ol’ night of it!

Until then though, All the best o’ luck & good health to ye.
