HESTIA NEW ALBUM OUT MARCH 12TH PRE-ORDER HERE

The Rumjacks have shared their new single, ‘Hestia’, the title track and second single to be taken from their upcoming album, out on March 12th.

A song of vengeance delivered with the force of a hurricane, the track is a folktale about a girl who shoots down a personified wolf in an act of defence. Draped in several levels of symbolism and metaphor, ‘Hestia’ (named after the goddess of the home and the hearth), is a firecracker of a song, and an absolute earworm.

The Rumjacks

Hestia, the fifth studio album from The Rumjacks, marks a new era for the band. The album introduces new lead singer Mike Rivkees, whose songwriting skills have rejuvenated The Rumjacks’ collaborative spirit. The album takes the energy of traditional folk music, lights it on fire, then sprinkles it with ash. Dark, gritty, and historically aware, this is music grounded in the character of the Rebel.

When writing Hestiaband members Mike Rivkees (vocals), Johnny McKelvey (bass), Gabe Whitbourne (guitar), Adam Kenny (bouzouki/mandolin), and Pietro Della Sala (drums) apply their diverse American, Australian, Italian, and Irish perspectives to create a new, globalized iteration of the Celtic punk legacy dating back to The Pogues, with the influences of punk, ska, and hard rock pulsing through their veins.

The Rumjacks – Hestia

The album was recorded under strict Covid-conditions in Milan, Italy where the band stayed through August, September and October 2020. For twelve years, The Rumjacks have written songs that you cannot help but start singing by the second chorus, even if you have never heard them before. In this short career, they have released four acclaimed studio albums and two live albums that capture their most renowned asset: their electric energy onstage. That organic energy has garnered them a far-reaching fanbase.
