The Rabble Album Release Show For New Album


The Rabble Album Release Show For “The Battle’s Almost Over”

Click for big version

Come celebrate the release of The Rabble's highly anticipated album 'The Battle's Almost Over' at this ALL AGES show on Saturday 15 December 7.30pm at Ellen Melville Hall in Auckland.

The Rabble present 16 tracks of well-thought out, heartfelt anthems - including the new single Seeking, the hard and fast 'This World is Dead' featuring Mark of Boston heavyweights The Unseen and mixing from Jim Siegel @ The Outpost, Massachusetts (Dropkick Murphy's, Brain Failure, Far from Finished, Blood for Blood etc.)

The three-piece band based on the Hibiscus Coast of Auckland, New Zealand are dedicated to bringing an onslaught of soulful and unique Punk Rock! Forget the stereotypes, what you've heard or think you know. This is a band that lives for Rock 'n Roll, who gig relentlessly and know exactly how to get the kids tearing up a moshpit!

Formed by brothers Rupe and Chazz in the tedious summer of 2000 (aged 15 and 14) the 'aptly named' The Rabble wasted no time in getting out of the garage and onto the stage. Seven years and hundreds of live shows later, the band has undergone several line-up changes without ever losing integrity, loyalty, the vision or more importantly - the core players!

Adopting the D.I.Y spirit that is Punk Rock, The Rabble has been doing it BY themselves and FOR themselves for years. Having avoided signing to any major labels thus far, they have written all original material, put on their own shows, setup their own recording studio and put out their own CD's. With an attitude similar to that of one of their heroes - the late Joe Strummer who stated "one of my pet hates are the punk police" - this is one group who isn't going to follow any trends to fit a mould!

The Rabble have both a local and growing international fan base who just want to hear good old-fashioned quality music, executed both live and on disk and with this band - that is exactly what you get, nothing more - nothing less!
Joining The Rabble live is West Auckland punk/ska act Badtown and Hibiscus Coast hardcore punk rockers The Explicit.

Pre-sales are available NOW from Real Groovy $10+bf and a limited number of door sales are available on the night for $15
