UK garage rock band China Rats formed in Leeds during the summer of 2011 and have been busy on the festival circuit and earning kudos from the likes of BBC Radio 1.

“Nip It in the Bud” is the band’s new single and it’s front-loaded with crunchy power riffs and punk attitude. The band says, “We wanted to write something that people could swing to like the cats in the ‘60s, but which was a bit rough round the edges. It’s a bit of a nod to the Sonics as well.”

“Nip It in the Bud” releases 15 April via Once Upon a Time Records.
