Rusty Roots is a four-piece band that can’t be pushed into one musical genre or box! But if you do want to label the boys, you can call them a hard working live band (roots band). This year they’ve released their fourth full album. A spectacular album that’s even been recorded on a toilet… No shit!

With ‘Your Host’ Rusty Roots presents a surprisingly new record. Your Host has been recorded in the home of the mother of mario ‘Triggerfinger’ Goossens. Mario himself has produced the album, and thanks to him Rusty Roots has discovered various unknown horizons. With influences from all the corners of the seventies, they have created a new raw sound. Think seventies, heavy riffs, pounding drums, rigid voice.

The press already speaks of one of the best rock ‘n’ roots album of the year! And not only Mario Goossens is a fan, even Coldplay picked up the single and published it on their website. So who thought they’ve heard it all, has grossly mistaken! Love it or hate it, Rusty Roots will always be different, unexpected and will do whatever  they like, without losing their personality and charms. They’ll follow their hearts and will always stay true to each other. According to them, their secret ingredient.

Four musicians who give everything to their music, both beside and on stage!
Artists who push each other to the extreme to keep you and themselves entertained.

But above all Rusty Roots is a live band, which you must go and see once in your lifetime!
