Yorkshire Rats - S/T EP



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) UK punk rock act Yorkshire Rats are pleased to share their self-titled EP will be released today through Northern Ruff Records and is available for pre-order right now from the band's official website.

Formed in Pontefract in 2004 the Yorkshire Rats is the brainchild of former Billy No Mates & Abbrasive Wheels' musician Don Mercy. With several UK & European tours under their belts as well as shows with the likes of CJ Ramone & Rancid the band has quickly built up an army of dedicated fans attracted to their fine blend of So Cal punk and 80s UK influences.

Inspired by the roots-driven punk of American groups like Social Distortion & Lucero as well as faster artists from the old-school like Stiff Little Fingers & The Ramones, Yorkshire Rats have finely tuned their musical output and developed a unique. Mercy's own brand of songwriting is never shy of grit & gravel, however as is clear on their latest EP they're never too far from a good melody either.

Following on from their full-length album 'Sea of Souls' released through Indeliriumin records in 2015. Their latest offering was recorded by Sam and Joe Graves (Asking Alexandria/Bullet For My Valentine) at Innersound Studios, York and is out today through their own imprint Northern Ruff Records.

Yorkshire Rats are:
Don Mercy - Vocals/ Guitar
Matt Lee - Guitar
Josh Clarke - Bass
Chris Furness - Drums
