The Swedish hard rock hopefuls Deaf Rat will release their debut album, “Ban The Light”, via AFM Records on November 1st. The album will be available as CD and Clear Red Vinyl, limited down to 300 pieces.
The album „Ban The Light“ is inspired by yesterday’s and tomorrow’s evening news, where politics and religion are used to justify horrible acts. The album tells the story of people stuck in a world where free will is taken away, slowly, step by step, without anyone noticing. The first stroke of Deaf Rat was produced by Erik Berglund and is the soundtrack of a dark and grainy dystopia, a should-have-been-made movie directed by the Devil with a cast of thoroughly bad men and evil women. Basic tracks were recorded live in the band’s own Ballroom Studios in Falun, to capture as much as possible of the band’s on-stage energy.
Their third single, “Tying You Down” can be heard here:
