Aussie punk rock band The Rumjacks will performe in Hungary for three incredible shows

2016 has been a fabolous year for THE RUMJACKS, with their new album “Sleepin’ Rough” and an extensive european tour. But now for the Sydney’s band is the time to come back! They will performe in Hungary for three incredible shows:

21st SEPTEMBER -Dürer Kert (Budapest, Hungary)
22nd SEPTEMBER – Roncsbár (Debrecen, Hungary)
23rd SEPTEMBER – Hangár (Sopron, Hungary)

Since the bands inception in Sydney, Australia in late 2008 when Frankie McLaughlin met Bassist Johnny McKelvey, they have racked up over 20 million YouTube views, with over 16 million of these for their breakthrough track ‘An Irish Pub Song’.

“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 & Irish music in our parents record collection, before colliding head-on with Punk Rock as we grew older & 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 incendiary live performances and seemingly endless touring regime has seen them share the stage with acts as diverse as Dropkick Murphys, The Interrupters, 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.”


Indeed there are – from their heavy Celtic roots to the driving punk rock or even ska/reggae rhythms, well-oiled sing-alongs & choking ballads. “We draw on so many influences, but still it’s important for us to force the bounds of what we already do, play good solid Punk rock with a fat smear of Celtic folk right through it, Hopefully contributing something fresh & substantial that’ll stick around in people’s hearts long after the party’s over..”
