Euro Tour March ’13 : Art by David Allen & Sean Aaberg

March 7th through 25th your own Ratsos will be touring Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium and Holland, with our pals Tracy Lee Summer (in Portugal) and Bikini Gorge (in France, Belgium & Holland)

The tour title is Droppin’ Out – EU Tour ’13, named for the new single we will be peddling in vinyl 7″ format DROPPIN’ OUT w/ CANNIBAL CANNIBAL

 

We are teamed up with some gnarly Punk & Rock-N-Roll artists for poster and sleeve designs, DAVID ALLEN (Bomp!, Zeros and many others) and SEAN AABERG (Editor Chief of PORK Magazine, recently in VICE)

DAVID ALLEN loaned us his brushstroke for the NO RED TAPE Red Tapes & Records logo, and is also designing a keen cover for our next album THE TABLOIDS, Volume 1 of our EP series based on international tabloid articles, noir, pop-conspiracy and quack science

SEAN AABERG, collabo-RATer since 2010 has designed our THIRD European Tour poster, his own interpretation of the German legend of the Rat-King

A BIG THANKS in advance to everyone who is booking & supporting this tour, and who has helped us with art, couches, rat-snacks or gigs along the way (it seems like just yesterday we did our first tours in Cleveland and San Francisco). See you soon Lisboa!

The Re-Rat: Club Bafo de Baco – Portugal, & Live on Klokey Radio 2012

“Cannibal Cannibal” was a new song for our 2012 Iberian Tour. At Bafo de Baco we worked with Microsurco, Gaz! Productions, and got to visit with the guys from Rock Around the Blog. We played with Psycho Tramps, and Lisbon’s Tracy Lee Summer who will join us on the beginning of our 2013 European Tour in March

Just before leaving for Europe we performed it live at Terminal NYC for Klokey Radio

Here’s a peek:
