BOOMTOWN RATS - CITIZENS OF BOOMTOWN
The Boomtown Rats will mark 2020 (The Year Of The Rat) with the release of ‘Citizens Of Boomtown', their first new studio album since 1984, plus a UK tour, and a book of lyrics and reminiscence by Rats singer Bob Geldof entitled ‘Tales Of Boomtown Glory'.
The Boomtown Rats' first new studio album for 36 years, ‘Citizens Of Boomtown' features 10 glorious new Boomtown Rats songs and will be released on March 13th '20. The first single ‘Trash Glam, Baby', a beautifully sleazy rocker, will be released on 10th January '20.
On the same day as the album release (13th March '20) Faber Music will publish a new book by Bob Geldof. Tales of Boomtown Glory is a collection of the complete lyrics from Geldof's Boomtown Rats and 7 solo albums, accompanied by an introduction and 28 song stories written by Geldof, with exclusive scans from his notebooks over the years. The stories provide a witty and honest account of the background, inspiration and context of the songs. Lyrics to the 189 songs include previously unreleased material as well as the new songs on ‘Citizens Of Boomtown'.
2020 will also see the release of a new documentary film about The Boomtown Rats, that tells the story of the band from their inception in Dun Laoghaire, through their role in the punk wars, the hits, the drama, Live Aid and all points in between.
