Self described ‘party punks’ Rat Attack live up to their label in ‘Heartbeat’, their new single culled from the forthcoming self-titled EP which drops on March 11th via ‘pay what you want’ digital download. The video details raucous party scenes in some suburban sweatbox with enough sleeve tattoos, heavy boozing and crowd surfing to shake a stick at, all set to a backdrop of life-affirming Refused meets Against Me! Riffs, with some guest vocals from Liam Cromby of We Are The Ocean thrown in just to sweeten the deal. The band is set to hit the road imminently with Red jumpsuit Apparatus and if the video is any indication of how well Rat Attack deliver the goods live, they’re certainly worth a punt. There’s no guarantee the paint-splattered kissing girls will make an appearance however.
