The band commented: “Plenty of blood sweat and tears went into this very DIY release. Massive thanks to Suitcase Records and GenR8printing for the physical elements and some very cool extra bits plus we’ll have a new merch drop thanks to Hard Core Logo.”
The Howlin’ Rats are an amalgamation of sounds that you can’t quite put your finger, or in this case, ear on.
The Newcastle, Australia based musical trio began on All Hallows Eve 2019, after no-one else turned up to an open mic night at Hiss & Crackle Records.
“Should Have Smelt A Rat” is the debut album from psychedelic swamp trio The Howlin’ Rats. 8 tracks that capture their diverse gumbo of influences and burgeoning sounds. Available now on Vinyl, CD & Tape via Hiss & Crackle Records.
