FFO: Mirah, Hop Along, Rilo Kiley or The Thermals

hicago Ratboys will release their debut LP ‘AOID’ on June 9th. Check out a song titled “Tixis” on Brooklynvegan.

To be notified about the ‘AOID’ pre-order launch click here. The band’s catalog is also now available for free download on their Bandcamp.

Brooklynvegan says: “Singer/guitarist Julia Steiner and guitarist Dave Sagan formed the band (then known just as Ratboy) as an acoustic duo, but they later added bassist Will Lange and drummer Jordan Parel, turning Ratboys into a full-sounding rock band. The folkier roots aren’t completely gone though, which gives Ratboys a similar folk-inspired-rock vibe to bands like Hop Along and Waxahatchee.”

Ratboys will be touring in May and June. See dates below.
