Bootleg Rascal have had a massive couple of months abroad touring with label-buds, Sticky Fingers, in Europe and the USA; then headed back to Europe and UK, playing their own headline shows and Holland’s festival circuit.
With a couple of months down time back on home soil, the band are currently working on their sophomore album. Their first single ‘Love Her Like I Love You’ is the first taste of what’s to come from the forthcoming and second LP. A record that emphasizes their melodic knack, unique use of loops and explores a recent obsession for 80’s sounds and drum pads taking cues from Bowie and Peter Gabriel.
After releasing their debut album, 'Asleep In the Machine', in January this year, the taco-slinging-dub monsters continued to charter their way at home and abroad, which included sold-out shows at the Manning Bar (SYD) and Corner Hotel (MEL). The title track off the album, 'Asleep In The Machine', also placed at #169 in triple j’s Hottest 200 countdown (2016).
The quartet are set for a national tour this summer, with shows lined up along the East Coast. They'll also play a cheeky festival or two, with a recent performance at Hi-Fi Days (Cronulla), upcoming event The Plot (Parramatta Park) and will feature on the annual Shake N Bake Tour in January-February 2017.
‘Love Her Like I Love You’ is available to stream via Soundcloud.
