New Florida Man Song "Rat On The Loose" Premiering at Revolver
The new album from Charleston, South Carolina noise-punk agitators, Florida Man, Tropical Depression, drops everywhere this Friday! The album is a menacing slab of riffs and feedback that offers hardcore heaviness mixed with groove-laden noise rock menace, and today we've teamed with Revolver to premiere one more early taste in the form of "Rat On The Loose." Florida Man's music is innately aggressive but the band excel at injecting that pummeling sound with a surprising amount of memorable hooks. "Rat On The Loose" features a vocal performance that takes a few pages from the Ian MacKaye book of shout-singing, and a tambourine-fueled chorus as catchy as the guitars are biting. Revolver praised the song, calling it, "a blistering track that might best be described as Pissed Jeans with Spencer Moody from Murder City Devils covering Give, though other favorites such as Drive like Jehu come to mind on the urgent and furious track." Get the album on limited edition vinyl at the Spartan store to get an instant download of two new songs before Friday.
