Cannot wait for the new album. They’ve steadily become one of my favourite bands over the last year or two

This is a current favourite. Posted it in multiple threads recently

Really wish they were doing a Scottish date. Might push myself to go to Manchester. They sound so good on both of these

Ach thought it was Saturday 6th May but it’s US date format, Monday 5th June. Bummer

Final single before the album release. Nice understated one, sounds like Frankie Cosmos.

Loving the album blurb on Bandcamp:

“Rat Saw God is an album about riding a bike down a suburban stretch in Greensboro while listening to My Bloody Valentine for the first time on an iPod Nano, past a creek that runs through the neighborhood riddled with broken glass bottles and condoms, a front yard filled with broken and rusted car parts, a lonely and dilapidated house reclaimed by kudzu. Four Lokos and rodeo clowns and a kid who burns down a corn field. Roadside monuments, church marquees, poppers and vodka in a plastic water bottle, the shit you get away with at Jewish summer camp, strange sentimental family heirlooms at the thrift stores. The way the South hums alive all night in the summers and into fall, the sound of high school football games, the halo effect from the lights polluting the darkness. It’s not really bright enough to see in front of you, but in that stretch of inky void – somehow – you see everything.”

Counting down the days till Friday.

Can’t wait until Friday - they’ve been inching towards an honest to god masterpiece over the last few albums (especially if you include MJ Lenderman’s from last year). I feel this one might just put them there…

Had my first go of RSG on a short drive today. This band can do no wrong. Looking forward to getting stuck into it proper next week. Other than Bull Believer this one really stood out

They’ve properly borked Spotify’s live show algorithm

(stunning album - gutted the date they’re actually playing is already sold out)

It’s not much of a Uk tour all told. Presume they’re back later in the year.

Gave this a go based on all the recent praise. I expected to bounce off it, but no this is brilliant. Very impressive first listen and immediately going on repeat.
