How you doing, pals?
Rough times all round, and we would like to extend to you all goodwill and hope in these shitty days.
We WILL all get through this and normal service will be resumed, hopefully sooner rather than later!
In Rejects land, things are bubbling below the surface. We are told that unfortunately Scotland calling has had to be postponed due to the current crisis, but we are assured that it will be rescheduled at a later date.
Other than that, we are working on something big and we will be announcing all real soon, so rest assured we ain’t sitting on our hands at this point!
Again, all the best to each and every one of you, stay safe and be strong.
Here's the video for our slammin' new tune "40 Years Undefeated" which goes out to all our pals worldwide who have stuck with us boys for the past 40 years.
See ya on the road Pals!

There will be clips, news and interviews regarding everything we have coming up, including the forthcoming winter UK tour, the big London show on Dec 15 at the 02 Academy in Islington, (get your tickets from the shop) and soon we'll be making some announcements regarding the Rejects 40th anniversary plans for 2019.
Feel free to subscribe to Cockney Rejects Official TV:
Hello there pals, just a quick update of all things Rejects.
As you may be aware, we have just added the Upstarts as special guests for the December 15 Christmas bash at the 02 Islington academy. Tickets are available here on the rejects shop for whats gonna be the party of the year!
In other news plans are now being hatched for the big one....That is the 40th anniversary world tour in 2019.
We're currently in negotiation with Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Korea and the USA plus our regular promoters in Europe to make it, fittingly, the most comprehensive year we've ever done. Will keep you all updated on progress.
Now the summer is almost here we are raring to go for all festival and headline shows that are coming up in 2018.
And don't forget that there will be a new range of merch (Including the legendary flat caps!) coming to the shop soon.
And signed Chapecoense tribute singles are still available.
See ya on the road pals!!
Alright there pals i'm chuffed to announce that we have released a digitally remastered and repackaged version of our first foray into classic rock - 1982's The Wild Ones.
We have always loved this album and as it has been the subject of renewed interest over the past few years and has landed some rave reviews, we thought that it was time to give it another airing.
Produced by mad Pete Way and recorded amid some of the maddest shenanigans ever seen in a recording studio, here it is in its full glory.
Featuring brand new sleeve notes, it's now available from the shop.
On 28 Nov 2016, La Mia airlines flight 2933 from Viru Viru airport in Santa Cruz, Bolivia crashed en route to Jose Maria Cordoba International in Colombia. 71 of 77 passengers were killed, including 22 players and 23 coaching and other staff of the Brazilian football team, Chapecoense.
They had been en route to play the first leg of the Copa Sudemericana cup finals against Colombian team Athletico National.
The whole of Brazil and the worldwide football community mourned. The Cockney Rejects have always been closely associated with South America, having toured there many times, especially Brazil.
Being the avid football supporters that we are, we empathised with Chapecoense's terrible loss and decided to record this tribute to the fallen heroes. Sung in Portuguese to the tune of our 2016 tribute to West Ham United's legendary Upton Park ground, Jeff's heartfelt lyrics are a tribute to those who died, and also to the families and friends of the fallen who were left to cope in the aftermath of the terrible tragedy.
20% of the proceeds of this recording will be donated to them.
This will be a strictly limited release of 500 copies only signed by myself and Jeff.
This is a split 7" single with 'Chapecoense' on one side and Jeff's 'The Outfit' project with 'Boss Of Bosses' on the other.
Release date is March 9th
Cost is £10+P&P
You can pre-order your copy directly from us by clicking HERE

Alternatively you can order from our good friends at the
Vive Le Shop website HERE
Welcome to 2018!
We started with a bang with a great tour of Japan. We haven't been back there for some years but it was just as great as it always has been, this time maybe even better. The support was unbelievable! Big up to Yuichi Yamomoto and the Anger Flares, and everyone involved for making it such a great start to the new year.
There's a bucketload of good stuff coming up this year, kicking off with the rescheduled Paris gig on Friday Jan 18, and gigs scheduled for Hungary, France, Italy, Switzerland and Norway, with more coming in all the time. Another jaunt to South America is planned for march, this time taking in Mexico, Peru and Costa Rica with more dates to be announced. And before long we'll be making an announcement regarding our annual Christmas show in London, which is gonna be something special.
New boy Joe Perry Sandsome is a revelation, a great guy and a veritable drumming force of nature, and the good news is that he's gonna be with us for quite some time as lainey takes the long road to what will hopefully be a full recovery.
Here's hoping that you all had a great Christmas break, and we'll see you all on the road in what should be an exciting 2018!
We have finally nailed Jeff down to sign some more of the
Goodbye Upton Park and It's Gonna Kick Off 7" singles.
Both available from Amazon.
Scroll down for the links to order.
How's it going pals!
Just an update on all things Rejects.
The tour is going brilliantly. Everything couldn't be better. Every gig has been a special experience for us and your support has been fantastic. Big up to new boy Joe Sansome. He came in as a late replacement for Lainey and he's been a revelation. Brilliant drummer, brilliant fella and what's more it looks like he's gonna be with us for a while, which we're chuffed about! Also a big thank you to tour tech Tony Allard who took time out between working for Slayer and Metallica to do this tour and like Joe, he's been brilliant and we hope to work together as much as possible in the future.
And most of all a massive shout out to YOU who as usual have been the greatest supporters that any band were lucky enough to be blessed with.
You have made this tour one of the best that this band have ever done and we salute you all.
Just Wakefield and Dundee to go now, and we can't wait. we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas a brilliant new year and we'll be seeing you all in 2018.
LET'S 'AVE IT!!!!!
How's it going everyone.
Just wanna drop everyone a line to update you all on the Lainey situation.
As you probably know, the big fella was taken ill at the Butlins alternative music festival in Skegness a couple of weeks ago.
he was taken into hospital the following night and after extensive tests it turns out that he has been suffering from a blood clot near his heart. Thankfully the doctors have caught this in time and hopefully he will make a full recovery, but obviously he won't be sitting in the drum stool for the near future.
While he recovers, we will be carrying on the UK tour with a replacement drummer, the first of whom is a very special guest who will be with us at Midlands calling on November 4.
Thanks for all of your kind messages of support for Lainey, and i'm sure that we will be seeing him back and fighting fit in 2018.
In the meantime we're really fired up for the upcoming UK tour. so let's make it a classic.
See ya on the road pals!!
