Ratboys Release New Single ‘Morning Zoo’

    Ratboys put out another single from their upcoming album The Window, having already previewed it with ‘Black Earth, WI’‘It’s Alive!’, ‘Crossed That Line’, and the title track. They’ve also announced their first-ever headline shows in Europe and the UK. Listen to the new song, ‘Morning Zoo’, and check out those dates below.

    “The lyrics are meant to express the frustration and confusion that comes along with hanging out at a personal crossroads, where every day feels the same and the same big questions keep nagging at you from the back of your head,” the band’s Julia Steiner said of ‘Morning Zoo’ in a statement. “It’s that small, lingering feeling of numb indecision, of pesky anxiety – like disassociating at a stop sign or weighing all your biggest hopes and fears while stuck behind the longest freight train you’ve ever seen.”

    The Window is set for release on August 25 via Topshelf.
