LP mit Downloadcode. RATS ON RAFTS aus Rotterdam haben - schade, leider kein weiteres R - bei Fire Records unterschrieben.

In Eigenregie produziert, aufgenommen und mit analogem Equipment gemastert haben sich RATS ON RAFTS vom Pop ihres ersten Album emanzipiert und die Ausbrüche zur Perfektion gebracht, die in letzter Zeit so oft auf Bühnen nah und fern zu bestaunen waren.

Sirrend vor Integrität ist das neue Album ,sicker und schneller - sie haben für diese Gelegenheit ihr Post-Punk-Rasiermesser gewetzt." (Noisey).

"Rats On Rafts don't so much slow down and pull up to their terminal, but rather hammer their foot to the accelerator and drive straight off the end of a cliff." - Loud & Quiet // "They are one of those bands whose recordings to date bear no relation to how earth shatteringly brilliant they are live." The Quietus // LP includes high quality download.

Rotterdam's rousing Rats On Rafts have signed to Fire Records. There will be an extensive European tour later in the year including dates at Incu-bate, Club Bad Bonn, Espace B and Soy Festival.

Self-produced, recorded and mastered with analogue equipment, Rats On Rafts have moved away from the pop sounds of their first rec-ord, refining and emulating the explosive outbursts heard in their recent live shows.

Intense with integrity, the structured LP is "sicker and faster - they've sharpened their post-punk ra-zors for the occasion" Noisey "Rats On Rafts don't so much slow down and pull up to their terminal, but rather hammer their foot to the accelerator and drive straight off the end of a cliff." - Loud & Quiet // "They are one of those bands whose recordings to date bear no relation to how earth shatteringly brilliant they are live."
