Through hard work and playing everywhere and anywhere, they have built a huge following - a measure of this is that they have sold out O2 Academy Liverpool main room 1200 capacity 5 months in advance for forthcoming September show.
Glastonbury 2019 for BBC introducing was a pivotal moment in the Red Rum Club journey, as they rammed the BBC Introducing Stage and had Huw Stephens (BBCR1) championing the band after an exhilarating live performance. Red Rum Club are headliners on the This Feeling stage at many festivals this year including Truckfest, Tramlines and YNOT, as well as having already headlined TF stage at IOW.
