Formed in 1975 in Dublin The Boomtown Rats exploded out of Ireland in ’76 and their fast, loud, furious music meant they became part of the burgeoning punk scene.
The Boomtown Rats first toured with the Ramones and Talking Heads before becoming one of the biggest bands of the late 70s/80s with a string of top ten hits and platinum albums, earning them Brit Awards, Ivor Novellos and Grammy Awards. Making history as the first Irish band to have a UK no 1 hit with Rat Trap, they went on to top the charts in 32 Countries with I Don’t Like Mondays and racked up 6 era-defining albums: The Boomtown Rats (’77), A Tonic For The Troops (’78), The Fine Art Of Surfacing (’79), Mondo Bongo (’80), V Deep (’82) and In The Long Grass (’84).
The Boomtown Rats release their brand new album Citizens of Boomtown in 2020.
