The Rumjacks have shared the video for ‘Rhythm Of Her Name.’ The track features on their new album ‘Hestia,’ which was released in March to widespread critical acclaim, and follows the announcement of an extensive UK and Ireland tour in 2022.
Vocalist Mike Rivkees (who also directed and edited the clip) says, “Rhythm of Her Name is one of those songs that only can arise out of tragedy. With ghastly undertones in both lyrics and video, the combination of the two has created some of my proudest work as both a songwriter and filmmaker. Being able to intertwine these to tell a full story (without giving away the song’s true meaning), has made this one really shine.
Met with praise from the likes of Kerrang!, Dead Press, Metal Talk, Fireworks and many more on release, ‘Hestia’ has already garnered over two million streams on Spotify alone. A riotous and anthemic collection of infectious tracks, the album takes the energy of traditional folk music, lights it on fire, and sprinkles it with ash. Dark, gritty, and historically aware, this is music grounded in the character of the Rebel.
The band will be showcasing the new album across the UK and Ireland throughout January and February 2022. Starting with a date at Jimmy’s in Liverpool on January 25th, the band will be unleashing their renowned live energy on audiences across 24 dates, including a show at London’s Camden Underworld on February 12th.
When writing ‘Hestia’ (named after the Greek goddess of home and hearth), bandmembers Mike Rivkees (vocals), Johnny McKelvey (bass), Gabe Whitbourne (guitar), Adam Kenny (bouzouki/mandolin), and Pietro Della Sala (drums) applied 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 punk, ska, and hard rock influences pulsing through their veins.
