The Rabble are a Punk Rock band from Auckland, New Zealand, that formed in the NZ summer of 2000/2001 while still attending Orewa College. Their official myspace page went live on 29 February 2004. They collaborated with Mark Unseen of Boston band The Unseen to create the song/video for “This World is Dead” from their album The Battle’s Almost Over. The Rabble were on tour in the UK and Europe from August to January 2009[citation needed] as well as writing and recording for their next album. 6 drum tracks were recorded at York Street studios in Auckland early in 2008[citation needed], and the bass and guitars are being tracked at Number 8 wire Recording studio, once again by Chazz Rabble.[citation needed]. In April 2010, they were in line-up at Punk & Disorderly Festival in Berlin. On 1 August 2011, The Rabble released a new album that was long awaited by anxious fans titled, “Life’s A Journey”. They were the 2nd band to be announced for Rebellion Festival 2013 along with Cali-Punks Left Alone after their successful show at Rebellion in 2009. They will be joined be punk/metal titans, The Casualties and classic 80’s punk act, The Exploited. [1]
