Rat Boy shares new track 'Don't Hesitate'

With his eagerly-awaited new studio due out later this month, Rat Boy has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Don't Hesitate' follows on from the previously unveiled tracks ‘No Peace No Justice’ and title-track in previewing the Tim Armstrong-produced sophomore LP 'Internationally Unknown', due out on the 25th January via Hellcat Records/Parlophone.

“We listened to some old funk records then we went into the live room and tried making our own and I was playing bongos on it at the start,” recalls RAT BOY. “Liam Haygarth’s playing one of those short-scaled ukulele basses, they have plastic strings so the bass in it sounds crazy. When I went back to England, I had had this drum pack of weird reggae breaks and drum hits. I chopped it up and kind of wanted to go for a weird Rebel MC ‘Street Tuff’ vibe. Tim and I put a sort of Run DMC stabby guitar in which I think really worked.”
