That’s it, The Ruminaters have told the boss to shove it, cracked a beer on Susan’s desk and dropped summer anthem ‘Boys Off Work’.
2017 saw ‘The Rumies’ holed up in London’s infamous RAK Studios (David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, The Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead) recording their AA side release which included lauded singles ‘I Wanna Fight’ and a super sensual cover of Hot Chocolates ‘You Sexy Thing’
“The latest track from Sydney punks The Ruminaters is a straight-to-the-face glassing. Nothin’ you can misinterpret here mate, as the quartet soundtrack a sweaty, limb-swinging moshpit with a sub-three minute display of drooling drunken stammers and flashes of more focused fury”, Rollingstone
“Catchy lyrics that preach rebellion, an explosion of drum bashing and catastrophic guitar riffs”, Happy Mag,
“A very naughty cover of Hot Chocolate’s ‘You Sexy Thing’ existing in splendiferous contrast to the hard-and-fast original, ‘I Wanna Fight’”, Pilerats.
Under the watchful eye of long time producer and friend Rob Brinkman (Royal Blood, The Pixies) The Ruminaters put the final touches on their sophomore album Welcome to Flight: S.U.N 91 set for release in early 2018. ‘Boys Off Work’ is the first single to drop and a sneak peek at the the highly anticipated album. The pestiferous lot from Sydney’s northern beaches truly give the 9-5 life the good ole’ middle finger with this absolute banger. “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“, Pencil The Ruminaters.
To celebrate the release of ‘Boys Off Work’ The Ruminaters have quit their jobs, hijacked a bus, grabbed their buddies and are heading out on the road for the ‘Left Our Jobs Forever’ tour. The lads will also join none other than American sweethearts GROUPLOVE as special guests on their Australian Tour.
