English reggae-influenced punk rock band Ruts DC are set to play in Carlisle later this year.

With their unique blend of raucous punk rock laced with reggae and dub, the Ruts were one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Britain’s late-70s scene.

Their career was cut cruelly short by the death of their singer in 1980, but still the group released six crucial singles and a seminal album in their short lifetime, while the surviving members reformed as Ruts DC.

Ruts DC will play at The Old Fire Station in Carlisle on Sunday July 21, where they perform all the hits plus new material, as part of their Electracoustic tour.

Tickets cost £20 and are available online now.
