They’re famous for delivering audacious, no-prisoners live performances, with comparisons made to The Cramps, The Stranglers, MC5, The Stooges & Beasts Of Bourbon. Never ones to fall back on tired formula, they’ve spiced up their gigs by recruiting impromptu choirs and backup dancers (The Bashettes) to join them on stage. They have even gone so far as to hand out their own currency (Bash Cash) and print their own ‘Prayer Book’, featuring Bashers’ lyrics, artwork, and comics. They have rubbed shoulders with acts like such as The Damned, Bog Log III, Hits, The Mis-Made, Fireballs, X, Six Ft Hick and The Stabs.
The song is lifted from their second EP ‘Rise Hard‘ released earlier this month and will be launched at Amplifier in Perth this Friday 22nd December.
Check out the EP and video clip below.
Her debut for the label speaks to our current social state, as well as Ruby’s experiences and challenges throughout her career.
The album was recorded at Modern Electric Sound Records in Dallas, TX with producer Beau Bedford and features collective The Texas Gentlemen as backing band, with Nikki Lane lending vocals (and songwriting duties) on the album-titled track.
At 14 years old, Ruby Boots— real name Bex Chilcott — left a conflicted home in Perth to do grueling work on pearling boats, and she hasn’t stopped migrating since. Her nomadic streak has taken her around the world, and eventually to Nashville, TN.
‘Don’t Talk About It‘ charts this drifter’s odyssey, tattered passport in hand. Behind her commanding and versatile voice, sharp guitar playing, and adept songwriting, Ruby Boots confidently maneuvers past the whirlwinds life has tossed on her occasionally lost highway. It’s an album of hope, breakthrough, and handling the unknown challenges around the next bend.
Watch a video for ‘It’s So Cruel‘ from the album below.
A video clip for the single has just been released and can be seen below.
The band will be in Australia just after the album release supporting The Maine. Tickets are on sale now. Details below if you need reminding.
