The Rumjacks have been around for 10 years, during which they’ve dedicated most of their lives to two activities: writing music and touring. 2018 was no different for the Australian celtic punk rock band: if anything, they stepped it up. Their new album "Saints Preserve Us" came out on October 12th, a date that served as kick-off for another one of their massive journeys – 34 sweaty shows in 16...

"Hestia" is the title track and second single from The Rumjacks forthcoming album, out March 12th. It is a song of vengeance delivered with the force of a hurricane. In short, it’s 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...

"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. "Hestia" 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 "Hestia" (named after the...
