Album ‘The Window‘ out now via Topshelf Records

Chicago’s beloved Ratboys released their album, ‘The Window‘, last year via Topshelf Records and have just announced a new run of UK tour dates for this June. The band are set to play two headline London shows at Windmill Brixton, dates in Southhampton, Nottingham, Glasgow & Leeds as well as festival performances at Primavera Sound and Best Kept Secret. 

To make The Window, Ratboys travelled outside their home base of Chicago to record an album for the first time ever, journeying to Seattle to work with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, Tegan and Sara, Foxing) for three weeks. The sessions struck the perfect balance between preparation and experimentation. Walla’s studio sensibilities pushed Ratboys to stretch and expand their vision, adding unexpected elements and instruments like rototoms, talkboxes, and fiddles. Hunting for sonic inspiration, Walla and the band sometimes spent hours just listening to their favorite albums, spinning everything from Sloan to Brainiac to The Roches.

May 29 – Barcelona @ Primavera Sound

May 31- London @ Windmill Brixton w/ Langkamer
