Review: The Rumjacks’ single ‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus’
The Rumjacks Brass for Gold (8 song EP) is out 11th February 2022.
Worldwide Celtic Punk heroes The Rumjacks have added new U.S. headline tour dates in May, including select dates with Flatfoot 56. See dates below.
The shows will be preceded by their stint as one of two support acts on Dropkick Murphys’ 2022 St. Patrick’s Day Tour of the U.S. The trek kicks off on February 21 and runs through March 20th. Tickets for these shows are on sale now at www.DropkickMurphys.com.
The band’s latest single “Bloodsoaked in Chorus,” off their forthcoming ‘Brass For Gold’ EP is out now.
Rock At Night Says: Lots of ska punk energy from the get-go! Riding on Vespas in the video, The Rumjacks take us on a wild Irish ride through skate parks and dance halls. There’s plenty of singalong choruses intertwined with Celtic riffs and punk attitude. Makes me want to run to the nearest pub and stay for the craic! We look forward to seeing them when they hit America February.

In the true nature of a lovesick songwriter, ‘Bloodsoaked in Chorus’ is a ska anthem that belts out in passion. Irish instruments replace the traditional horn section with the song perfectly blending two genres.
The follow-up to their critically acclaimed and commercially successful 2021 fifth studio album ‘Hestia’ (which introduced new singer/songwriter Mike Rivkees on lead vocals and rejuvenated the band’s collaborative spirit, and marked an explosive new era of energy and creative release), the upcoming ‘Brass for Gold’ EP finds The Rumjacks capitalizing off their new sense of artistry.
“After the amazing response we had from Hestia’s release, we knew we had to back it up, do it justice and show we aren’t messing around with any of this,” says bassist Johnny McKelvey.
‘Brass For Gold’ will be released on February 11.
