Forest of Dean band The Rumble are enjoying a real breakthrough year and October promises to be a busy month for the four-piece band who will be travelling all over the UK playing gigs at Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff and Nottingham.

The rock band have developed a strong following in Gloucestershire and are keen to take their music to venues further afield to help increase their profile. “We’re all really looking forward to getting on the road and playing at some great venues,” said Ricky Delaney, lead singer and guitarist for the band.

“It’s going to be nice to return to our fans in those areas and meet new bands who are on the same bill as well as old friends. I’ve been to Nottingham before to see bands play and it’s a lovely city, got a cool vibe, so I’m looking forward to that. We’ve played in Manchester, Leeds and Cardiff before, we’re excited to be going back,” he added.

The band is comprised of Ricky, George Schreuder, Jack Manchester-Lyes and Scott McParland. It’s only been three years since their first gig but ‘The Rumble’ have made a big impression on the music scene here in Gloucestershire.

Ricky continued: “We’ve played pretty much everywhere you can in Gloucestershire. We’ve been fortunate to have played at The Guildhall in Gloucester which is probably my favourite place to perform. The Coleford Music Festival is always one of the highlights of the year, we always get a buzz from playing there.

“You’re in a band to play music you love, and when you’re getting the response you want from the crowd, nothing tops it. We’ve a few songs now that have some crowd participation, and it’s always the best feeling when everyone gets involved! For me, being on stage is truly my happy place.

“People often ask us what our secret is, and I always say the same thing – hard work and dedication. A lot of it as well is sticking to your guns and doing what you believe is right no matter what people think. Always be yourself.”

The band won’t be resting on their laurels, in fact they’re already planning ahead for next year. Ricky added: “For next year we want to hit the festivals hard. We’ve done Lakefest before so to return there would be great. As well as that I’d really like to play the big local festivals like 2000trees and the Lechlade Festival. In terms of our main target that would be to get on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival.

“We love what we do, we all enjoy each other’s company and want to work as hard as possible to achieve our goals.”
