I have loved China Rats for quite awhile and even more so the above mentioned song, after 15 months in the making the really ace stop motion video is now avaliable for your viewing pleasure below, along with a top re-edited recording afresh from the awesome Soundcloud demo I’ve been championing. It’s acting as first single from their eagerly anticipated second EP, Don’t Play With Fire, out on 14th October.

While on that topic, they recently released a new track by the name of Deadbeat and it’s rather good. And, of course, they’re embarking on their first UK headline tour this autumn, unfortunately all my local-est ones are 18+ and i am still a few months off (and admittedly gutted), however you should go to at least one of these dates, if nothing else they sell really cool badges (anyone that gets me one gets bonus points)…..
