From making waves with his album ‘CIVIL DISORDER’, RAT BOY is back at it again working with Tim Armstrong this time to produce his new album ‘INTERNATIONALLY UNKNOWN’.
His 12-track collection will be released on January 25th via Parlophone and Armstrong’s Hellcat Records. Their new video for the track premiered today, you can watch it here.
“I wanted to do this completely differently because ‘SCUM’ took so long, and I was learning the whole way through making it,” says RAT BOY. “I wanted to make something more personal and raw, which reflected me more. I was trying to find that sweet spot between hip-hop and punk, and Tim really understands that stuff. I’ve never really spoken to anyone else who love hip-hop and punk like I do.”
The result is the twelve track collective that amplifies RAT ROY’s rabble-rousing riot act to a new level. He’s drawing on diverse influences which echo, at various points, The Clash, Beastie Boys, The Prodigy, Rebel MC, Green Day and Run DMC.
