The Ruts DC are to release a new single, ‘Kill The Pain’, next week.




Released via Westworld/Sosumi Recordings on Friday 3 March, the single – taken from last year’s “comeback” album, ‘Music Must Destroy’ – features backing vocals by Stiff Little Fingers frontman Jake Burns and Spear Of Destiny/Theatre Of Hate frontman Kirk Brandon.


Ruts DC bassist and vocalist Segs toured with Burns and Brandon last year, as part of the Dead Men Walking acoustic project, and says that provided the perfect opportunity to feature his two fellow frontmen on the single:


"In between singing we didn’t stop talking and laughing. It just felt right to have them sing on the single.“


The Ruts DC support The Stranglers on their forthcoming tour:

Later in the summer, The Ruts DC will support Stiff Little Fingers when the Belfast punks mark their 40th anniversary with their biggest ever hometown show, at the city’s Custom House Square on Saturday 26 August.  The bill will be completed by The Stranglers and The Outcasts.
