The Rabble go on break

New Zealand punkers, The Rabble, have announced that they are going on hiatus. Here’s what they had to say:

Hey everyone. Sorry about the lack of news on The Rabble. We have been quiet for a long time, and are really sorry to say that we are “officially” on a break / putting the band on hold. I don’t doubt that we will write together again in the future but for now we are all on different pages in life, so rather than ruin a good thing – we are putting it on the back burner for now. Saying this Jamie is recording a solo tune soon, Rupe has a couple of solo tunes out and I am also working on a couple of projects at the moment. We have a limited amount of CD’s left and at this stage we won’t be printing any more. These were done in short runs so make sure you be in quick if you want some. Check out To order C.Ds. Much appreciation and respect to all of our amazing fans.

The band released their latest album “Life’s A Journey” on August 1st, 2011.

DS Exclusive Interview: Chazz Rabble (The Rabble) talks new album “Life’s A Journey,” influences and being yourself

In 2007 when I was 16, I used to browse MySpace for new underground punk bands. It sounds silly when you consider what a soulless, spam ridden graveyard MySpace is now. At that time, it was a great way to connect with bands from across the globe. I randomly came across a punk band from New Zealand called The Rabble. When I clicked play on their music player I was immediately struck at their ability to blend a wide range of punk styles. They have an early anthem like punk sound with a modern feel. Fast forward four years and the band is back with their new album “Life’s a Journey.”

I was lucky enough to interview their singer Chazz about the new album, their journey as a band and being yourself. You can check out my interview with him here. While you’re at it check out their Dying Scene Band Spotlight and album review.

Punk Rock Trivia: The Unseen and The Rabble – an amazing side project that never was

Every once in a while the punk rock geniuses here at Dying Scene unleash a tasty little nugget of punk rock trivia in an effort to blow our readers’ minds. Also, we like to make ourselves feel smart.  Today’s fun factoid is about Own Worst Fear, a side project band that started with so much potential only to go absolutely nowhere.

The band was formed after Mark Civitarese, vocalist for The Unseen, was asked to do a guest vocal on the song “This World Is Dead,” which appeared on The Rabble‘s 2009 album “The Battle’s Almost Over.”  Afterward the band flew Mark out to New Zealand to film a video for the song and while he was out there they laid down another track called “Reflection.”  Instead of putting it out as another Rabble song the fellas figured they would probably record even more songs together in the future so they decided to start an “unofficial” side project called Own Worst Fear.  Alas, this was two years ago and no new songs have been recorded and some of you may have noticed that “Reflection” just appeared on The Rabble’s newly released album “Life’s A Journey.” You can still hear the original version of the song, however, on Own Worst Fear’s MySpace page.

Album Review: The Rabble – “Life’s a Journey”

True talent doesn’t just lie beneath a hit song, ground breaking record sales or a successful World tour, true talent shines brightest in the words we speak and the actions we take.  When the subject is successful New Zealand trio, The Rabble you can rest assured that the talent will be on full display and the music will always be heard loud & clear.

Scratching off the punk rock layers prominently found in their previous albums (along with an EP and European exclusive greatest hits) Life’s A Journey takes the listener directly down the road less taken. From the historic intro highlighting some of the band’s most well known songs to the roots radical reggae of tracks such as Mind Ghetto and Wrong Side of the Tracks all the way to the break-neck street punk of Gunnin for the NRA and Reflection (the latter featuring street punk veteran, Mark Unseen of Boston’s The Unseen from a 2008 NZ based collaboration).  Life’s A Journey is definitely The Rabble at their finest.

Reminiscent of such notable albums as The Clash’s, London Calling and Green Day’s, American Idiot it’s the message conveyed on this album that really breaks it apart from a music industry saturated with Youtube sensations and auto-tune aficionados.  The lyrics are well versed and backed by the heart with songs about love, lower class struggles and standing up for what you believe in.

As the music progresses you are witness to three talented musicians proudly displaying their best work to date.  Some examples include the punk rock anthem found in the first single, The Journey down to the melodic love song, With A Rose in My Hand featuring Al Barr (of Dropkick Murphys fame) through memorable punk flavored tracks such as, Blood, Sweat & Tears and Dead Anthem. Life’s A Journey is the perfect musical representation of a life well documented.

I think it’s safe to say that there are two types of people in this World, those who like The Rabble and those who will. Welcome to your new favorite album…enjoy the ride!

Band Spotlight: The Rabble

The Rabble is a straight up punk rock band from New Zealand founded by three dudes who set out to prove their country has more to offer than beautiful scenery.  Brothers Chazz, Rupe and their friend Jamie formed the band in 2001 and have since released an EP and two full-length albums. Unlike a lot of bands today, you won’t find filler songs on a single Rabble release. Each song is irresistible and jam packed with energy and passion but the band’s talent is best showcased by the level of diversity in their sound. They have fury driven street punk songs, Celtic influenced tunes and soulful Punk Rock anthems that will grab your attention and leave you begging for more. I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this delighted about a band since I first heard the Bouncing Souls. It’s bands like this that remind me what got me into punk rock in the first place – good times and great tunes! If you aren’t familiar with this band yet do yourself a favor and visit their MySpace.
