The Rumjacks Releases New EP “Brass for Gold”: Streaming
- Sydney based Celtic punk rock band The Rumjacks, consisting of Mike Rivkees, Johnny McKelvey, Gabriel Whitbourne, Adam Kenny and Pietro Della Sala, released their brand new EP “Brass for Gold” on February 11, 2022.
The EP follows up the fifth studio album “Hestia”, which was released in May 2021.
The EP comprises 8-track and is grounded by the eclectic Celtic punk sound that The Rumjacks have become synonymous with the band dig deeper into their ska and hard rock influences, all the while holding onto the defiant energy that ignites their sound.
“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,” bassist Johnny McKelvey said.
“Brass for Gold is as much as an EP can possibly offer and still be called an EP. In true Rumjacker fashion, these songs represent a variety of different stories. The topics range from lovesick nostalgia, to misfortunate war heroes, and a few lighthearted drinking songs for good measure,” frontman Mike Rivkees said. “While some EP's tend to be quite experimental, Brass for Gold represents a solid continuation of the newly reformed Rumjacks. Once again stating (almost literally in some of the lyrics) we are passionate and dedicated songwriters.”
