Premiere: The Ruminaters New Single, ‘Bad Bad Things’

The new indie punk tune from rockers The Ruminaters is the perfect tune for a mild, bright sunny day like today. Since dropping their first single of 2016 ‘Mr. Bubbles’, you can now, thanks to us here at, check out their band’s new single, ‘Bad Bad Things‘.

The Sydney group recently returned home after completing their first ever European & UK run which featured few headline shows and supporting slots alongside The Black Lips, Eagulls as well as White Fence.

The mixing duties of this single were handled by one Evan McHugh, who’s CV included the likes of Midnight Oil, Grinspoon, The Golden Age, Jet and The Delta Riggs, and even Dead Letter Circus. So basically, that dude has made a lot great sounding Australian bands sound even better, both on the record and in the live setting. Respect the engineer, people, respect the engineer.

Now, for those unaware, The Ruminaters are this odd of indie surf rock, psychedelic, and a whole lot of rock ‘n’ roll, but they do what they want for better or for worse. After all, their new album is called ‘I Used To Hate The Ruminaters, Now I Like Them’ and the band’s frontman goes by the title of “Pencil”. Why? I don’t fucking know why! But what I do know is that their new jam is pretty solid, so go give it a listen below.

You can catch The Ruminaters doing more bad things in-person at the following shows:

Sunday 4th Sept – Visions Stage – King Street Crawl, Newtown, NSW

Thursday 8th Sep – BIGSOUND: The Flying Cock, Brisbane, QLD

Friday 16th Sept – The Lord Gladstone, Sydney, NSW

‘Bad Bad Things’ will be released August 19th via Sydney label, The Sunball Machine.
