U.K. artist Rat Boy puts out an angst upbeat and infectious tune “Internationally Unknown” combing elements of grime, punk, and pop the production features a way cool music video with ridiculous hydraulics and the band walking around looking cool. Good luck getting “I don’t know where we’re gonna go, I’m internationally unknown” out of your head. It is no wonder I really enjoy this song since “After making waves with his debut album ‘SCUM’ and the seven-track ‘CIVIL DISORDER’, RAT BOY has teamed up with Tim Armstrong to produce his new album titled ‘INTERNATIONALLY UNKNOWN’. The 12-track collection will be released on January 25th via Parlophone and Armstrong’s Hellcat Records label and is today previewed with a video for its title track.” Anything Tim Armstrong touches seems to turn to gold, hopefully he’ll get this band out with The Interrupters in Los Angeles and I can go see the two perform together. If you’re in the U.K. and want to check out this rising star you can catch him and his band at on The Dumb & Confused Tour. It will culminate with three themed London shows:
8th – Nottingham, Rock City
9th – Liverpool, Invisible Wind Factory
10th – Sheffield, Leadmill
11th – Edinburgh, Queen’s Hall
13th – Bristol, O2 Academy
16th – London, Bush Hall – playing tracks from the present and future.
17th – London, Electric Brixton – playing the ‘SCUM’ album in full.
18th – London, Electric Ballroom – setlist decided by a fan vote.
