Celtic Punk heroes The Rumjacks have added new US headline tour dates in May, including select dates with Flatfoot 56. 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 US. The trek kicks off on February 21st and runs through March 20th. The band’s latest single, Bloodsoaked in Chorus, that is taken from their forthcoming Brass For Gold EP, is out now. In the true nature of a lovesick songwriter, the track 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. The upcoming Brass for Gold EP will be released on the 11th February and it 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.
