Coming off the back of new single “Black Man”, cult hit “Spastic Hawk” and “I Wanna Fight Your Father”, Mr. Chrome and Blindboy Boatclub with Dj Willie O’Deajay launched their debut album entitled “Serious About Men” in late 2011. A double-CD release packed with tracks old and new, prank phone calls and more, “Serious About Men” is everything you have come to expect from The Rubberbandits. Having shot to worldwide fame in 2010, it’s been a momentous year for the comedy hip-hop outfit. Blindboy Boat Club and Mr. Chrome became internet superstars after “Horse Outside” premiered on RTÉ’s Republic of Telly and subsequently went viral (over 8 million views and counting!).
Critically acclaimed shows at Oxegen and Electric Picnic, storming uk festival appearances at Reading and Leeds combined with a sold out run of shows in New York combined with sell out shows all over Ireland to keep the bandit boys busy. Throw in filming a four part series and live show with MTV in the USA, an Ifta award and their Comedy Blaps filmed for Channel 4 with Father Ted’s Declan Lowney on direction duty currently clocking up the views, and it’s clear there’s no holding back The Rubberbandits in 2012.
