The 6 piece Celtic punk band Ramshackle Army (RSA) entered the Melbourne pub scene in June 2010. From there they have expanded outward, to the wider Australian punk audience and have additionally made multiple trips to the United States to perform.

In October 2011, the RSA were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to support Dropkick Murphys during their Australian tour. Unlike any band that had gone before, the Ramshackle Army were offered by Dropkick Murphys to join them for their St Patricks Tour of the East Coast of the USA. As a result, in March 2012 the RSA ventured across the pond to join Dropkick Murphys and Frank Turner as part of their first overseas venture.

Their second trip took the form of another US tour in September and October of 2015, this time to play California’s "Get Shamrocked" Festival as their first international act alongside a strong lineup including Flatfoot 56 and the Mahones. The band then continued on and joined scene legends and RSA influencers The Tossers for a run of shows as part of their “Halfway to St Patricks Day” Tour.

In mid 2016, The RSA returned back into the studio to record their EP “Whitewashed Graves” with Sam Johnston (responsible for the band’s first EP) at Holes and Corners in South Melbourne. The EP was released December 2nd 2016, and was their first on Australian independent label Folk ‘TilYa Punk Records and was distributed worldwide by MGM.

The first single off the EP “Foreign Soil” was premiered on Triple J and saw commercial play on Triple M, leading to the band being named “Home Grown Artist of the Week”.
