The Original Rudeboys had an extraordinary first year, breaking out of nowhere in March 2011 as a quartet of cool YouTube clips propelled them to cult status among Irish teens. Viewing figures on their YouTube channel are now well in excess of 1 Million, not bad for a band who didn't release a record until November of last year. The band's debut single – 'Stars In My Eyes' – peaked at # 2 on iTunes, and earned them new fans both online and in the media. On the live scene, the band goes from strength to strength. Their second single Travelling Man went straight to # 1 on iTunes. Their debut album This Life produced by Ed Sheeran’s wizard Jake Gosling went to #3 in the album charts.
