Hibiscus Coast punk rockers, The Rabble head to Palmerston North to play one all ages show with local support from Anatomy Stomp and Josh Burgess.

The Rabble 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 CDs.

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!

Releases to Date: ’No Clue, No Future’ - debut long player featuring the "already Kiwi Punk classic" ’Take a Walk’ and the Celtic-influenced hit single ’Carry On.’ Followed up closely by the...

’This is Our Lives e.p’ - an 8 track/enhanced CD bursting with contagious guitar riffs, "stirring, anthemic choruses and barbed vocals." Including the popular singles ’Friday Night’ and ’The Coast Song’

With their newest - the highly anticipated ’The Battle’s Almost Over’ The Rabble present 16 tracks of well-thought out, heartfelt anthems - including the new hit 'Start Again', 'Seeking' and the hard and fast ’This World is Dead’ featuring Mark of Boston heavyweights The Unseen. The album was produced and engineered by Chazz Rabble and mixed by Jim Siegel @ The Outpost, Massachusetts (Dropkick Murphy’s, Brain Failure, Far from Finished, Blood for Blood etc.)

Come and see The Rabble before they head to the UK later in the year.
