The Rumjacks released one of the best albums of 2021 with Hestia, and they have a new EP coming out soon called Brass for Gold. The second single they released is called “Bloodsoaked in Chorus” and it’s a fun ska influenced tune for all the Celtic rudies out there! The video was directed and edited by their new singer Mike Rivkees.
Bassist Johnny McKelvey had this to say about the new EP:
“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.”
Mike also commented about the new EP as well:
“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.”
“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.”
