Ratboys announce new album ‘Printer’s Devil’ & tour, share new song/video

Ratboys Printer's Devil

Ratboys have announced a followup to 2017’s GN called Printer’s Devil, which is due February 28 via Topshelf (pre-order). The album was produced by the band and engineered by Erik Rasmussen, and the first single is “Alien with a Sleep Mask On,” which finds Ratboys skyrocketing their crunchy indie rock into outer space (both sonically and, in the video, literally). Watch/listen below.

Ratboys also announced a tour, including one leg with Ellis and one with their Topshelf labelmates Another Michael. The run with Another Michael includes a Brooklyn show on May 7 at Rough Trade NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/15) at 10 AM with an AmEx presale underway now. All dates (including SXSW) are listed below.
