China Rats are inspired by a love of punk rock and the classic British guitar bands. That is, the very best bands - the ones with the greatest knack at conveying the frustrations and absurdities of their young lives. In these times where - let’s face it - prospects can generally be pretty crappy for men in their early 20s, China Rats have an irresistible energy and a turn of self-deprecating, tongue in cheek phrase, lyrics that could only have bubbled up from this part of the world. It’s not hard to see why their last hometown show sold out and festival bookers from Texas to the Med have been so quick to sign them up to play. China Rats release the Don’t Play With Fire EP on October 14th. The band, who played storming sets at Reading and their hometown festival, Leeds, last month, will head out on their first headline tour in October, including their first London headline show at Sebright Arms. The band will release a new single in February 2013.
