Gold Coast-based party starters Bootleg Rascal have just announced a 14-date East Coast tour across metro and regional areas.
The group will traverse the country, stopping off at Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Wollongong, Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Frankston, Melbourne, Geelong, Belgrave, Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Hobart and Caltowie.
“After moving and cancelling a bunch of dates in 2020, it feels good to finally be announcing something that is more likely to go ahead,” says guitarist Jimmy Young. “Anyone who knows us well, understands how important playing live shows is to us, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to get out there and make up for lost time with some banging parties.”
Gold Coast-based New Zealand born rapper Saint Lane will join the lads on all dates (excluding Sunshine Coast, Hobart and Caltowie). The rapper burst onto the scene in 2019, picking up praise from the likes of triple j, The Needle Drop, NME, The Guardian, GQ, Billboard and Beats 1 with Briggs. He’s also traversed the country, sharing stages with Lime Cordiale, JID and Bootleg Rascal.
Since their mid-2013 inception, Bootleg Rascal have released a slew of singles, two EP’s and two albums, all warmly received by critics and fans around the world, with support from the likes of NME, The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Pilerats and Wonderland Magazine. Multiple tracks have been added to Spotify and Apple Music playlists, high rotation on triple j and they’ve performed on the station’s 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.
The group are currently in the studio working on another record, set for release in early 2021. In the coming weeks, they’ll also announce a scavenger hunt for free tickets and merchandise, that will launch via their social media platforms.
