Hailing from Cologne, Germany, The SEWER RATS have made a name for themselves as one of Europe’s hardest-working punk rock/ punkabilly/ pop-punk acts, playing more than 400 shows worldwide, touring Europe, China, Japan & the U.S. with their slicked-back juvenile signature sound of catchy hooks and greasy punk rock. Walking the line between Stray Cats-cool, early 90s Social D. and old-school pop punk, the band sounds like Mr. Ness and Mr. Setzer were hanging out with Hank Williams, listening to the Ramones and teaching him new skateboard tricks while drinkin’ beers on a hot summer night.
Their new album ‘Heartbreaks & Milkshakes’ (Rookie Records/Rude Runner Records) takes the band to the next level and sounds like a sugar-high vision of 90s oldschool pop-punk with witty tongue-in-cheek humor and a greasy yet stylish 50s vibe. Delivering 12 catchy and well-crafted pop-punk sing-a-longs about heartbreak, black-metal chicks and moving back in with your parents (again), The SEWER RATS spent 2017 on the road in Europe and Japan to promote their new record. Playing the acoustic stage at Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia, supporting CJ Ramone in Germany and playing the famous club Moon Step in Tokyo definitley were some of the band’s highlights 2017.
In 2018 the band will be playing some of the major European Punk Festivals and also be hitting the road in the United States together with friends and East Coast punks Jukebox Romantics.
