Taking to Instagram they shared a statement revealing their upcoming reunion.

“We’re aware that us calling a day five years ago was a shock to everyone who enjoyed and supported us throughout our journey,” they began.”

While it wasn’t an easy decision it was one we felt was right at the time. The circumstances and personal reasons we hope to share with you all soon before going further,” they said.

“It’s been five long years since we put out any music as ‘The Original Rudeboys’ and still to this day we receive messages from people asking do we ever plan on getting back together again?” they explained.

“To answer that, YES! Yes we do, in fact, we’re working on music right now and while we’re all in different parts of the world we hope to have something ready for you guys very soon,” they revealed.

“So as of today, The Original Rudeboys are back!”

The band also announced they would be releasing a brand new single, Hypocrite on Friday, January 31st.

Taking to Twitter, the band revealed that Ukelele player Sean Walsh is living abroad and will not be involved in the band for the foreseeable future.

“Our baby boy Walshy is living abroad at the moment and doing absolutely great,” they said.

“While he sends his blessing from afar he won’t be actively involved in the band for the foreseeable future, but don’t worry it’s still all love.”

In July 2012 they supported Swedish House Mafia on their last Irish show.

A few months later in November, they turned down the opportunity to support Chris Brown at the 3Arena.

They later told RTÉ that they were completely against Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna.”

“In addition, with our latest single Blue Eyes being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about as a band and supporting Chris Brown would send out the wrong message to our fans,” they said.
