The Rumjacks have announced a huge tour for 2022 in support of their latest album Hestia, which we reviewed and bowled us over in March. You can read our review here.
The Rumjacks have announced a UK and Ireland tour for January and February 2022. Starting with a date at Jimmy’s in Liverpool on January 25th, the band will be unleashing their renowned live energy on audiences across 24 dates, including a show at London’s Camden Underworld on February 12th.
The announcement follows the band’s critically acclaimed new album, Hestia, which was released in March to praise from the likes of Kerrang!, Dead Press, Metal Talk, Fireworks and many more, and which has already garnered over two million streams on Spotify alone.
A riotous and anthemic collection of infectious tracks, Hestia takes the energy of traditional folk music, lights it on fire, and sprinkles it with ash. Dark, gritty, and historically aware, this is music grounded in the character of the Rebel.
When writing Hestia (named after the Greek goddess of home and hearth), bandmembers Mike Rivkees (vocals), Johnny McKelvey (bass), Gabe Whitbourne (guitar), Adam Kenny (bouzouki/mandolin), and Pietro Della Sala (drums) applied their diverse American, Australian, Italian, and Irish perspectives to create a new, globalized iteration of the Celtic punk legacy dating back to The Pogues, with punk, ska, and hard rock influences pulsing through their veins.
Armed with an incredible new album and an incendiary live show, these are dates not to be missed. Tickets are on sale now and are available here; all tour dates listed below.
