It captures the spirit of Rudely Interrupted, it's simple, beautiful and action packed. 


Unique Melbourne indie pop rockers, Rudely Interrupted have announced the release of their new single, I Am Alive and new EP of the same title. 

In 2008, Rudely Interrupted became the first ever indie band to perform at the United Nations in NYC and have since become regulars on the global touring circuit, only recently returning from their thirteenth international tour which saw them perform with the eighty piece, Alberto Pio Orchestra in Italy and then over to the US to perform at the Twenty Wonder celebrations at the iconic Doll Factory in LA. Other key performances over the years include Laneway & Woodford Folk Festivals in Australia, NXNE Music Festival in Canada, Rock An Der Wabe festival in Germany, Spikes Asia Awards in Singapore and VSA Arts Festival in Washington DC and a spot on Australia’s Spicks and Specks to name just a few.

With support from The Frasil Foundation, Rudely Interrupted are taking over the world and inspiring other individuals with challenges and disabilities to give everything a shot and follow their dreams. “We are here to show you that you can do anything you want,” beams Brooks, “with the right support and a lot of hard work, truly, anything is possible! We are living proof of dreams coming true and together with the Frasil Foundation we will be touring the world with our powerful message of hope and 'anything Is possible.”

"I don't feel disabled,” explains lead vocalist and keyboard player, Rory Burnside, “being born with perfect pitch and without eyes probably makes me a better musician." Drummer Josh Hogan also has an incredible story to tell, but most importantly he has developed a technique that works for him and he can really play the skins. “As for Beke, Happy Mondays have Bez and Rudely Interrupted have Beke, a naturally gifted entertainer, he's responsible for on-stage midi triggering and good times and spiritual guidance both on stage and off,” says Brooks. 

Excited to unleash their new tunes on the world, Brooks says the band are keen to be known for the quality of their music and not their disabilities. “What a musician chooses to play is the art, that choice is not influenced by, let’s say… having one leg, they are almost always influenced by the emotional world around their conscience. And so are we. But our expression is characterized by the physical traits and I also think this gives us a style,” says Brooks. “And I can see a day where we will be accepted as artists in our own right, a group of passionate indie rockers giving it their all.”

The film clip for lead single, I Am Alive was created and illustrated by Mirranda Burton (Kasey Chambers) with the help of some illustrations from band member Sam Beke. “We tried to capture the craziness of our lives since we started touring all over the world,” says Brooks.
Mixed by Greg Wales (You Am I, Augie March, Bloc Party) and recorded at Tender Trap Studios in Northcote (Melbourne), the new self-produced EP is the band’s fourth studio release comprising six passionate, uplifting rock songs.

“Their music is some of the most energetic and genuine to emerge from the Australian rock ‘n’ roll underground in recent times.” Timeout Sydney
