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." The Quietus //
