RED RUM CLUB are delighted to announce a fresh run of live shows for 2019, including a date at Newcastle's Head of Steam on Thursday March 7.

Directly following a magnificent Autumn tour which saw their swooning Spaghetti Western-tinged rock’n’roll win hearts at venues across the nation, not to mention perform to an enormous SOLD OUT crowd at the O2 Academy in Liverpool; the Scouse sextet now confirm they will be back for more throughout March 2019 in support of their debut album ‘Matador’.

Initially forming in 2016, the six-piece have been biding their time, pedantically collecting melody by melody, lyric by lyric, the songs of their epically envisioned forthcoming debut album. With a strong sense of camaraderie and a remarkable DIY work ethic, Red Rum Club have toured the UK extensively, learning the ropes of booking, managing, recording, and of course performing duties entirely independently as they slowly edged towards their dreams of a releasing their debut album. 100% Grassroots, authentic and with a sound and vision defined completely on their terms, Red Rum Club are completely thereal deal and needless to say adoring fans haven't be hard to come-by. With their frenetic live shows and now-notorious guerrilla gigs in the North-West quickly becoming the stuff of local legend (just check out the band's roof-top performance of 'Calexico' and 'Angeline' for Signature Live), RRC have already amassed a loyal fan-base in their native Liverpool and across the wider nation.

News of the live shows follows the recent unveiling of the band’s striking new single “Would You Rather Be Lonely?”, which has been receiving airplay on BBC 6 Music throughout this week. Loaded with the cavaliering thrills’n’spills that witnessed its high-octane predecessor “Honey” receive nationwide radio play on BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq), BBC Radio Wales (Janice Long) and Radio X (Ross Buchanan, Gordon Smart, John Kennedy), “Would You Rather Be Lonely?” has all the hallmarks of another surefire hit single.

The track is the latest to be lifted from Red Rum Club’s highly anticipated debut album: ‘Matador’, set for worldwide release on 11th January 2019 via the Modern Sky UK label (The Blinders / Slow Readers Club).

With lyrics taut with all the grittiness of a high-noon drama and soundscapes bristling with the arid atmosphere of a cactus-studded panorama, Red Rum Club debut album ‘Matador’ will take you to a world of Spaghetti Western Rock’N’Roll like no other. Packed with swashbuckling song narratives, gripping guitar lines and the trumpeting trademarks worthy of Tarantino’s finest film scores, ‘Matador’ lassoes the listener with 10 potently original tracks gleaming with widescreen ambition. From its Bandito blues to its Alamo allegro, the intrepid originality and knowing sense of adventure of this sextet’s outlaw oeuvre are sure to have you hooked.

‘Matador’ was recorded at the infamous Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, with added production assistance from Chris Taylor.

Red Rum Club, play the Head of Steam, Newcastle, Thursday, March 7.
