Ratboys have released a new single called ‘Black Earth, WI’, their first new music since 2021’s Happy Birthday, Ratboy. The eight-minute track arrives with an accompanying video made out of found VHS storm chaser footage. Check it out below.
“We recorded ‘Black Earth, WI’ live off the floor in Seattle last year at the amazing Hall of Justice and it was our first time recording straight to tape,” the band’s Julia Steiner explained in a statement. “We had to be conscious of how many takes we could fit onto a reel, but lucky for us, take two was the one.”
