Bio

After having a huge year out on the road through 2017 and 2018 playing over 150 shows and releasing critically acclaimed EP ‘Ready Or Not’ RACKETT have returned triumphant as ever with their new single, ‘Tried To Quit’. With snappy production and an attitude-laden delivery of lead vocals and punk harmonies, ‘Tried To Quit’ deals with all the vices and habits we can’t quite kick. As ever with this one, RACKETT have brought us a relatable tale that is primed for a sweaty rock and roll environment.

It’s been a wild ride for Rackett since they released their bombastic debut EP ‘Ready Or Not’ in 2017. Having already shared the stages with the likes of The Darkness and Killing Heidi, along with lucrative festival spots at some of Australia’s best events including Jack River’s Electric Lady Festival, Lost Paradise, Mountain Sounds Festival, Groovin The Moo, Big Pineapple Festival and Secret Garden Festival, Rackett have risen through the ranks to dominate in their field. Named winners of the ‘Rockin The Puburbs’ competition run by the Australian Hotels Association, Rackett have also enjoyed national exposure as the featured talent in an Australia-wide rollout for General Pants.

Ever adventurous, the charm of ‘Ready Or Not’ was quick to reach international audiences, earning RACKETT impressive charting positioning on the iTunes Canadian Rock Chart (#10) and garnering spins with premier Australian radio stations Triple J, Triple J Unearthed, FBi, 4ZZZ and more. Being selected as participants in the ‘Extra Support Acts’ competition (run by YouTube, The Rubens, Universal Music and Extra Gum), RACKETT laid down the unofficial music video for ‘Tried To Quit’, which has now earned over 500,000 views.

Having successfully sold out venues throughout Sydney and Melbourne this year in the wake of their 2018 single releases ‘Alive’ and ‘Space Cadet’, RACKETT demonstrated their ability to consistently level up and kill it in front of longtime fans and newcomers alike.

Hardest working boss ass babes delivering a confident sizzling new track. I've just restored all my power after listening to this.

The call-n-responses, that 'WOOP', the key change. Punchy as all hell and always building! Cue for the next time I fail a social media detox.

this is like eating corn flakes with choccy milk - there's crunch, a bit of sweetness and it's give you an immediate energy boost. gotta keep devouring it to avoid the sugar crash.
