RUTS DC return with a brand new video and news of a new album.
'Counterculture' is the first single and (almost) title track from the trio's new album Counterculture?, which is set for release on 11 November through Sosumi Recordings. It's their first album since 2016's acclaimed Music Must Destroy.
“Counterculture? For us, it never went away,” says bassist/vocalist John ‘Segs’ Jennings. “We’ve always been on the outside and still are. It’s ok to be a freak. That’s why The Ruts started in the first place. If it’s still inside you, it’s time to light that flame again. Get to know what you don’t know. Come and borrow my lighter.”
Counterculture? is available to pre-order here.
