JUST off the back of an extensive UK tour with fellow punk outfit Strange Bones, Rascalton are showing no signs of slowing down with the release of a new track called ‘Eddy’.
The first new cut since last year’s CSC EP, ‘Eddy’ opens with a pulse-quickening bassline before launching into one of their trademark guitar-driven punk anthems. Inspired by a catfishing incident, the song thrashes in at just over a minute and a half to create one of their most immediate offerings to date. And it seems that in amongst all their relentless touring there’s been time to hone their craft aswell. Shedding the youthful bravado of their earlier tracks in favour of a more controlled chaos, the band are starting to show the steely self-assurance of their bygone punk heroes; the type that comes naturally after two years on the road.
Primed for another massive 12 months, Rascalton head out to SXSW this month for a debut appearance in the States. Check out the track below.
