Michagan experimental-grind trio CLOUD RAT announces two Spring releases on Artoffact.
Cloud Rat will reissue their self-titled debut, as well as a Deluxe Edition of Do Not Let Me Off The Cliff, this April.
Taste-making super-blog Pitchfork once referred to Cloud Rat’s music as “tempestuous expressions for troubled times,” but when they wrote that, they could not have imagined just how troubled these times would be. The Michigan based trio are back in 2022 with two confirmed slots at Roadburn Festival, and touring plans which will be unveiled in due time.
Today the band announces two Spring releases–just in time for Roadburn–on Artoffact Records: the first is a reissue, with some re-records, of the band’s ground-breaking self-titled debut. Considered by many to be a definitive statement in 21st century grindcore, Cloud Rat is fully remastered, comes with a bonus insert on vinyl, and, for the first time ever, will be available on CD.
The second release comes as a deluxe version of Cloud Rat’s experimental masterpiece Do Not Let Me Off The Cliff. The deluxe version comes with three bonus tracks, a beautiful art-insert, and is pressed on black vinyl. The vinyl is the first time these tracks have ever been released on that format.
