Dirty Rats

Dirty Rats’ second album End in Tears is out now! Get it here

The album has already received some fantastic reviews:

“All in all then, this is quality heavy rock that makes you sit up and listen to both the words and the music…no room for ballads here, so if you want high octane music with a large dollop of fun, this is certainly worth a listen.” RAMzine

“Let the good times roll. Dirty Rats know how to rock and they know how to roll. Delivering catchy beer-soaked rock tunes; The Juice, Axis of Love and Love From A Distance get the party started with plenty of Aussie energy.” GBHBL

“Dirty Rats have captured something in this album that takes you on a wild journey that has taken decades to achieve in the industry.” Metal-Roos

Dirty Rats are a no-bullshit Aussie pub rock band, playing beer barns and inner-city clubs throughout Melbourne and country Victoria. Over the last 30 years, the band have developed a sound that is typically Australian hard rock, think AC/DC, Rose Tattoo. But listen, and hear influences from MC5, Motorhead and even some punk rock. They have developed a loyal fan-base both here and overseas based on their critically acclaimed first album, Rock n Roll, and high energy shows for bugger all money, precious little industry recognition, but purely for the enjoyment of playing loud “balls to the wall” rock. After numerous line-up changes which saw some excellent players and some complete nut jobs pass through the band’s ranks, Dirty Rats are now a lean, mean and explosive 4 piece band pumping out some of the best new guitar driven rock, with a uniquely 80’s flavour, that you will hear today.
