The Original Rudeboys complete an extraordinary first twelve months as a band with the release of their debut album. Entitled ‘This Life’, the album will be released on CD and download on Gotta Run Records through Rubyworks / PIAS on Friday 23 March 2012.
The album features the singles Stars In My Eyes and Travelling Man; as well as all new recordings of songs such as Sunny Days and Bringing Me Down. The album was produced and mixed by Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Wretch 32) at his Sticky Studio base in Surrey, England in the latter months of 2011. Mastering was completed at Air Studios, London.
Breaking out of Dublin as a quartet of YouTube clips propelled them to cult status among young Irish music fans. Viewing figures on their YouTube channel are now in excess of one million, remarkable for a band who hadn’t release a record until November last year.
The band’s debut single, Stars In My Eyes peaked at #3 on iTunes. Travelling Man will be released on 09 March and has been a pre-order fixture on the iTunes chart since the release was announced. Their album launch show at The Grand Social in Dublin on 31 March has already sold out; and the band have just announced a further show at Whelan’s on 02 June.
