They’ve done it! Sydney punks The Ruminaters have quit their jobs and dropped your new summer anthem ‘Boys Off Work’.
The lads from northern beaches have traded the daily grind for full time focus on making blisteringly psychedelic punk rock and we think it’s paid off. ‘Boys Off Work’ is an infectious blend of melodic finger flipping, scratchy vocals and tight guitars – it’s an extension of their endearing rebellion but a sonic maturation for the band.
“We wrote Boys Off Work on tour, sitting by a pool talking about how good it’s going to be quitting our jobs and being on tour forever. If you don’t like your job or boss or making money, this song’s for you,” explains the band.
Last year saw The Rumies release their AA side, which was recorded in London’s infamous RAK Studios and featured lauded singles ‘I Wanna Fight’ and a ridiculously sensual cover of Hot Chocolates ‘You Sexy Thing’.
Once again, long time producer and friend Rob Brinkman (Royal Blood, The Pixies) has put the final touches on their v anticipated sophomore album Welcome to Flight: S.U.N 91, set for release in early 2018.
To celebrate their new found unemployment and the first taste of new music, The Rumies have hijacked a bus and invited their mates out on the road for the ‘Left Our Jobs Forever’ tour in March. All dates, venues and tickets can be found here. They’re also supporting Grouplove along the Aussie east coast this month – because they don’t have jobs.
