Cloud Rat from Detroit takes some Discordance Axis influence, some d-beat punk, passion, thoughtful lyrics, and a flair for choosing cover songs, and wraps it up in a tight package. The band wrapped up a U.S. tour with Nervous Mothers and played at the Dougout, a basement space in D.C.
Check out a couple of songs from the band’s set:
Cloud Rat does its fair share of touring. Besides the above trip, the band toured the West Coast this year, and that was after going to Europe in 2013. The last major release was the Moksha full-length on 7 Degrees Records, but the band is working on new material.
