‘Hestia,’ the fifth studio album from The Rumjacks, is out now and marks a new era for the band. The album introduces new lead singer Mike Rivkees, whose songwriting skills rejuvenated The Rumjacks collaborative spirit. Whilst many bands went underground during the pandemic, in a huge part due to there being no live concerts… The Rumjacks felt it so important to keep working and creating new music for their fans.
The new single ‘Light in My Shadow’ is a hooligan friendship anthem. Those friendships that seem to wane on and off like a wayward star can be some of the most important that we have. With epic bagpipes and a purely infectious sing-along chorus, this one is meant to be played loud. Throw your arm around your friend and belt this one out after a few beers.
The album was recorded under strict Covid-conditions in Milan, Italy where the band lived and created this new album through August, September, and October 2020, escaping back to their homes before another lockdown! Buy the new album HERE!
