Taste-making super-blog Pitchfork once referred to Cloud Rat’s music as “tempestuous expressions for troubled times,” but when they wrote that, they could not have imagined just how troubled these times would be. The Michigan based trio are back in 2022 with two confirmed slots at Roadburn Festival, and touring plans which will be unveiled in due time.
.
Today the band announces two Spring releases–just in time for Roadburn–on Artoffact Records: the first is a reissue, with some re-records, of the band’s ground-breaking self-titled debut. Considered by many to be a definitive statement in 21st century grindcore, Cloud Rat is fully remastered, comes with a bonus insert on vinyl, and, for the first time ever, will be available on CD..
The second release comes as a deluxe version of Cloud Rat’s experimental masterpiece Do Not Let Me Off The Cliff. The deluxe version comes with three bonus tracks, a beautiful art-insert, and is pressed on black vinyl. The vinyl is the first time these tracks have ever been released on that format.
.
One of Cloud Rat’s Roadburn Festival concerts will be a special performance of tracks from the “Cliff” album.
“Cloud Rat is one of those rare bands whose music connects instantly, painfully—you feel the words, the riffs, and the all-consuming cacophony deep within the marrow of your bones, vibrating out into a hostile world.” -Kim Kelly, Noisey
.
“In a couple of key ways, Cloud Rat are what every grindcore band should be. Their music is inexhaustible, spasming through elaborate rackets of heaving riffs, spit-flecked vocals, and berserk percussion without ever slowing down.” -Kerrang
.
Cloud Rat is: Madison Marshall – vocals Rorik Brooks – guitar, keyboards, samples Brandon Hill – drums
