Riding the wave of their worldwide critically acclaimed first full-length album, Rock n Roll, the Dirty Rats are set to release their brand new album End in Tears on the 13th of December. The first single from the album is called The Juice. It is a celebration of getting out and having a good time - no matter what your circumstances are. Join the Dirty Rats and their mates as they suck piss and rock out in the Aussie bush. Pub rock just the way it was meant to be!!!
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.
Dirty Rats are:
Wayne (Richie Rat) Rich – Vocals
Jamie Beovich – Bass
Anthony (Chooka) Chapple – Guitar
Andy Thomson – Drums
