Essex based punk hip hop act Rat Boy has announced a signing to Hellcat Records. Along with this news is also a brand new album with Tim Armstrong himself called Internationally Unknown. The record is set for official release on January 25th, but they have released a video for the title track. You can check it out below.
On the topic of the album, Rat Boy himself says:
“I wanted to do this completely differently because ‘SCUM’ took so long, and I was learning the whole way through making it,” says RAT BOY. “I wanted to make something more personal and raw, which reflected me more. I was trying to find that sweet spot between hip-hop and punk, and Tim really understands that stuff. I’ve never really spoken to anyone else who love hip-hop and punk like I do.”
Stay tuned for more details on this collaborative album.
Internationally Unknown will be Rat Boy’s sophomore record, following SCUM.
