Portland's own SICK RATS join us live in studio!
From the Upper Extremities column: David Rose (Freedom Club/The Know): Sick Rats
"...they truly stand out from the pack, offering a fresh take on post-punk by filtering it through a sieve of Midwestern punk and KBD-style scuzz. They possess an ability to retain energy and urgency despite a somewhat plodding tempo (comparatively to what we often expect on the punk/hc 'circuit'), which can be attributed to jagged/shrill guitar interplay with a layer of swaggering low-end. And did I mention commanding vocals from a banshee of a frontwoman and plenty of feedback? Sick Rats are sick shit!"
Watch them in action here and get ready!
