Red Rum Club
Red Rum Club are a sextet from Liverpool. Through hard work and playing everywhere and anywhere, they have built a huge following a measure of this is that they sold out 02 Academy Liverpool main room 1200 capacity (Sept 2019) 5 months in advance. Further testament to the band’s rise are support shows with Blossoms and Circa Waves this year (see dates below).
Glastonbury 2019 for BBC introducing was a pivotal moment in the Red Rum Club journey as they rammed the BBC INTRODUCING STAGE and had Huw Stephens (BBCR1) championing the band
after an exhilarating live performance (see link in videos).
Red Rum Club headlined the This Feeling stage at many Summer festivals 2019 including Truckfest,
Tramlines, YNOT, and Isle of Wight. Support slots included with The 1975 and Miles Kane. Their
debut album ‘MATADOR’ released to rave reviews, went in at #47 position in the UK Official Album Chart, #5 in alternative chart, and #12 in the official UK album vinyl chart. Their 2nd album is due out autumn this year and have major tours through agent Steve Zapp (ITB) and promoters SJM and Metropolis.
