“This song (Asleep in the Machine) is an explosion of sunshine. This is the best thing I've heard from Bootleg Rascal since 'Oh I Know'. So much groove.” | Dom Alessio (Triple J)
“Bootleg Rascal’s live shows ooze confidence far beyond what is expected from a band early on in their career.” | Music Feeds
Bootleg Rascal has had a massive couple of months abroad. Joining their label-buds, Sticky Fingers, through the US and Canada smashing dates in LA, San Diego, New York, Texas, Portland, Vancouver, Banff and Montreal. They've also just come off the back of Sureshaker's Annual Shake N Bake tour with fellow shakers; Boo Seeka, Gold Member and Lyall Moloney
With a couple of months down time back in Oz, they are currently working on their second album. Working with Ian Pritchett, the upcoming record emphasises their melodic knack and explores a recent Rascal obsession for 80's synth sounds and drum pad loops (echoes here of Bowie and Peter Gabriel). The first single ‘Love Her Like I Love You’ is just the tip of what’s to come.
They'll be back out on the road for a single tour in April, packing in new songs in their set.
