UK punk rock act Yorkshire Rats are pleased to announce their self-titled EP will be released on Friday 16th June through Northern Ruff Records. To celebrate the news they are streaming a brand new music video for single ‘Alone Together’. A rapid-fire track which seeks to channel the harder edge of their songwriting.
Commenting on the ‘Alone Together’ vocalist/guitarist, Don Mercy said: “The track is all about the strains of relationships whether that be romantic or political. I guess it’s quite apt with the current political climate and with people seemingly so polarised and at each other’s throats. Musically, I like to think this track shows the faster and more aggressive side of Yorkshire Rats.”
Formed in Pontefract in 2004 the Yorkshire Rats is the brainchild of former Billy No Mates & Abbrasive Wheels’ musician Don Mercy. Inspired by the roots-driven punk of American groups like Social Distortion & Lucero as well as faster artists from the old-school like Stiff Little Fingers & The Ramones, Yorkshire Rats have finely tuned their musical output and developed a unique punk rock sound.
Yorkshire Rats are:
Don Mercy – Vocals/ Guitar
