The Rats of New York have released 4 records on vinyl (Puta Records, No Red Tape Records, and Chickpea Records). They've been in a couple of films (cameos and soundtracks), and appear as fictitious versions of themselves in novels by NY Times bestselling authors (John Land and William Martin). They appear to be some kind of unstoppable cult of sonic banditos…
The Rats of New York will be returning to the Europe in 2014 when their new full length album comes out.
“I don’t give a sh*t if they’re hipsters. I won’t even hold it against them that they’re from New York.”
- K.K., MAXIMUMROCKNROLL
“…tight, attitude-laden songs that will shake your hips like a jukebox full of the Ramones”
