The Rumjacks recently released their new, fourth album and I listened and reviewed the album for our zine. Read on!
I didn´t know for this band until 2016.and their show at Punk Rock Holiday, which made me listen to the albums and keep an eye and ear open for this band. Usually, I am not too keen for all the celtic punk and folk punk bands out there, but this album is just somehow made for my ears. These Australians deliver mighty set with 12 songs of celtic folk punkrock with a lot of melody, sing along choruses, fun and emotion. There are reggae and ska influences in Fare Evader, the title track and A Dozen Good Reasons To Weep which is one of my favorite songs on this record. Also, I love The Foreman O´Rourke with the guest performance by Paul McKenzie of The Real McKenzies delivering nice vocal guest lines. This is a very good album which even non celtic folk punkrock fans like me dig good.
