Cloud Rat releasing ‘Pollinator,’ touring (stream “Wonder”)

Cloud Rat

Michigan grinders Cloud Rat recently shared “Webspinner” and “Seven Heads,” off their upcoming album Pollinator, and we’re now premiering another track, “Wonder.” Like we said recently, grindcore isn’t always the easiest genre to break ground in, but Cloud Rat have a genuinely fresh, unique take on the genre and that’s come across on every song released from Pollinator so far. The album actually even comes with a companion EP that’s “devoted [to Cloud Rat’s] more experimental leanings,” and even on their grindiest songs you can tell that Cloud Rat are experimentalists at heart. Listen for yourself by streaming “Wonder” below. Pollinator and the Do Not Let Me Off The Cliff EP come out September 13 via Artoffact Records (pre-order).
