Some people say, “Punk is dead.” Well, those people have not been paying attention. In addition to all the USA bands who are cranking out amazing albums, Punk is still alive and well all over the world. Case in point, “Rumkicks.” They are a new, young, hot punk band from Seoul, South Korea.
In July 2022, they had their first ever UK tour! They were even one of the many bands chosen to play the world famous Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, England.
I had the privilege of seeing Rumkicks in London when they played their show at the venue called The Half Moon. They played with local legends, Healthy Junkies.
When Rumkicks took the stage, they had this amazing energy that they kept up for the entire set. They totally embody the punk spirit. This is definitely a band you need to check out. Listen to their song, “Punk Rocker,” and you can’t help but smile and dance along.
At one point during their set, the singer wanted to speak to the crowd, but she had to take out her phone and read off the message she wanted to say because she’s not fluent in English. Despite the language barrier, the crowd was able to understand the universal language of music, love, and passion these women had for punk music. It was such an incredible night with a show I’ll always remember.

A really good evening. I went for Rumkicks, but the other two bands were good too. Whoever did the sound there also did a great job as well.
I tried to get some pictures myself, but the green stage light didn’t help.
They went down a storm at Rebellion too, and have been invited back next year.
You took great pics!
