New Songs, New Shows, New Stuff!

Hello everyone!

So as you may have noticed Rat Storm went through a lot of changes in the last few months (new drummer, added a bass player, Zach's equipment doubling in size). As a result of this slew of changes we also went a long time with no new songs! However, we have good news because we are back to writing songs at full force - and with our new lineup they are more exciting than ever! We already have two written and more on the way, but as a result we are gonna take it a little easier than usual on shows for a few weeks so we can get some new material to play you the next time you see us!

We are playing with Xerxes on January 14th at the Dojo in Indianapolis, and have a few other things that we are possibly playing at in the near future as well. Hopefully we will have a slew of new songs for you then :)

We also are planning to record all this new stuff (as well as rerecord the demo) and possibly put out a 7", a split, or something of the sort early next year. I'll keep posting, so keep coming here to read them!

A different drummer...

While we are totally stoked about the new CD/tape we have some bittersweet news. Our drummer Caleb is going to be moving to Pittsburgh in just a few days for a job opportunity. While we are really bummed to be losing Caleb, Sleazy and I (Nathalie) are also very happy for him and hope that he keeps rocking in Pennsylvania. What this means however is that for the time being we are drummerless. We have a potential new drummer that can hopefully take over soon, but nothing is for sure just yet. However, don't worry we will get everything going again ASAP.

Because of the drummer-drama we are not playing the June 6th show at Bears that we had scheduled, however Junker - a great band from Indianapolis - is still playing, so go check them out anyway! We are hoping we can get things rolling quickly with a drummer and are currently planning to keep all our future scheduled shows for this summer, and we will post more info as we know more about these.

New CD/Tape!

We recently finished up our new CD/Tape combo - 6 songs, all new recordings with Brandon at Static Age. We are super excited about how it came out, so you should pick one up and be excited with us!

These are totally DIY, hand-made with specialty packaging, limited to 100, I've posted pictures below and will soon post a few tracks to listen to. Until then you can find some tracks on our myspace, facebook, or page. The combo is $5 ppd, if you want to order one just send me an email at .

We sold a bunch of these at our show on Wednesday - but I found out some very bum news as apparently a couple of the tapes ended up being blank (!!!) It seems as though there is a very small number (only 2 or 3) for which this mistake was made and we are going back and checking all of them to make sure that no more like this get sold. We apologize very much for anyone that got one of these, but as they were all made by hand the slow and difficult way, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised a couple got mixed up. If you already acquired a copy and it is blank, please send me an email ( and I will get you a new one immediately (as well as very sincere apology)!
