Dirty Rats are a no-bullshit Aussie pub rock band, playing beer barns and inner-city clubs throughout Melbourne and country Victoria. Over the last 30 years, the band have developed a sound that is typically Australian hard rock, think AC/DC, Rose Tattoo. But listen more closely and you’ll hear influences from the MC5’s, Motorhead and even some punk rock.

They have developed a loyal fan-base both here and overseas based on their kick-ass live shows and critically acclaimed first album, Rock n Roll plus the new release End In Tears. This band plays purely for the enjoyment of playing loud “balls to the wall” rock. Dirty Rats are a lean, mean and explosive 4 piece band pumping out some of the best new guitar driven rock, with a uniquely 80’s flavour, that you will hear today.

“All in all then, this is quality heavy rock that makes you sit up and listen to both the words and the music…no room for ballads here, so if you want high octane music with a large dollop of fun, this is certainly worth a listen.” RAMzine

“Let the good times roll. Dirty Rats know how to rock and they know how to roll. Delivering catchy beer-soaked rock tunes; The Juice, Axis of Love and Love From A Distance get the party started with plenty of Aussie energy.” GBHBL

“Dirty Rats have captured something in this album that takes you on a wild journey that has taken decades to achieve in the industry.” Metal-Roos

    Of course, comparisons to the legends of Aussie rock are inevitable (if not a bit lazy) but whereas those felt a little more obvious in the previous album, End in Tears is all about Dirty Rats own sound.
