Currently in the midst of a 15-date metro and regional tour, Sydney-based party starters Bootleg Rascal have just unveiled East Coast tour dates and their new single Lonely Times – produced by the band themselves, long-time collaborator Ian Pritchett (Boo Seeka, Kim Churchill, Angus and Julia Stone), with additional production by Simon Dobson (Little May).
Lonely Times is a feel good summer party anthem that shines a light on the duo’s unique genre-fusion. Melding their sun-soaked reggae and dub roots with modern day hip-hop, the track captures an unrelenting energy filled with infectious hooks, deft instrumentation and clever vocal cadences.
Following on from their sold-out ‘Yin & Yang’ tour, the group have also announced another East Coast capital city run for March and April. Coming along for the ride will be Brisbane stalwarts, Shag Rock, and New Zealand breakthrough artist, Jack Berry.
The duo will also make an appearance at ‘Day on the Lawn’ in Hobart, Tasmania on March 21, sharing stages with the likes of crowd favourites Boy & Bear and MEG MAC.
Since their mid-2013 inception, Bootleg Rascal have released a slew of singles, an EP and two albums, all warmly received by critics and fans around the world. Multiple tracks have been added to Spotify and Apple Music playlists, high rotation on triple j and they’ve performed on the stations esteemed ‘Like a Version’ segment.
The band have continually traversed the globe playing multiple sold out headline shows in France, UK, Holland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, and performed sold out shows in the USA. They’ve also regularly appeared on major Australian festivals including Falls Festival, The Big Pineapple Festival, Lost Paradise, Hills are Alive, Festival of the Sun and Party in the Paddock.
Lonely Times will be available worldwide via Bootleg Records on Friday January 17
