Released in September of 1979, The Ruts one and only studio album, The Crack, was an extraordinary statement of intent. As the energy and attitude of punks first wave started to dissipate, here was a band that exploded onto the scene with everything to offer. The Crack had it all, twelve power-packed songs brimming with invention and energy. 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of The Crack, however, it’s now time to take a well-deserved look back and Ruts DC are proud to announce a special UK tour to celebrate the albums original release, playing it in its entirety for the very first time, alongside the release of a brand new remastered vinyl reissue of the original album on February 8th. The 40th anniversary re-master of The Crack can be pre-ordered here
