Original Underground Music from the Mile High City  Since 1994


King Rat has been cranking out original two-and-a-half minute tirades about partying, passion and pain for 20 years. Their DIY character and bring-it-on attitude confronts banality while hacking away at the strictures of the status-quo. They celebrate the rush of joy at life’s brightest pinnacle, and traverse the mire of despair in life’s deepest trough. Their music applies literary blue collar grit to the old-school punk rock ascetic. The result is a sound that presents courage, calamity, sarcasm and rage in varying degrees.
