|A three-piece band based on the Hibiscus Coast of Auckland, New Zealand - 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 CD's. 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!
