Red Rum Club
Formed in early 2016, Red Rum Club are a sex-tet from Liverpool, channelling ‘Tarantino-esque’ wild western vibes with the help of a solitary trumpet. Amongst the 80s Liverpool influence they deliver a modern twist of poetic yet catchy lyrics combined with melodies that blend to create the sound that is unmistakably, Red Rum Club.
January 2019 saw the band release their debut album ‘Matador’ achieving Top 50 success in the UK Album charts and number 12 in the UK Vinyl Charts. The band later completed an incredible nine date “This Feeling” headline UK Tour in March, of which the majority were sold out.
Since forming, Red Rum Club have toured the UK extensively, booking every show themselves and adopting a strong DIY work ethic which has seen them build up an ever-expanding fanbase a measure of their popularity is playing to a sold out 02 academy in Liverpool. They also have also played on all major spring/summer festivals including Glastonbury, Sound City, Isle of Wight, Tramlines, Liverpool International Music Festival, Kendal Calling, Truck-Fest & YNOT.
Red Rum Club also recently topped the industry vote in the prestigious Pirate Prodi-gies UK best emerging band which is now set to step their profile up notably in the UK and beyond.
Following an incredible summer, Red Rum Club released new single “Kids Addicted” ahead of their much anticipated UK Tour, including a sold out homecoming gig at Liverpool’s O2 Academy. The track has proved to be a hit with fans, old and new, as well radio royalty Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Chris Hawkins.
“Bridging the gap between colloquial indie rock and cinematic soundscape, it’s easy to imagine Calexico belting out across festival fields; its fresh, frenetic nature serving to make it the sort of anthem Kasabian would wish they’d written, were they bold enough to pick up a trumpet.” – Louder Than War
