Rats in the Burlap is the latest salvo from celtic punks THE REAL McKENZIES.
The album opens with a rousing anthem worthy of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and maintains the boot-stomping passion throughout.
After 23 years of traversing the globe to spread their festive, high-octane, booze-fueled brand of punk rock, THE McKENZIES show no signs of slowing.
With street-punk standards highlighted by traditional Scottish musical elements, Rats in the Burlap is the perfect representation of what the band does best.
From the fast paced, ultra-riffy punk classic “Who’d a Thought” to the penny whistle that playfully ambles its way through the catchy “You Wanna
Know What”, the sing-along spirit of the album never lets up.
THE REAL McKENZIES only feel at home while on the road, so rest assured that they’ll be sweeping across the land in a dust cloud of big riffs, bagpipes, and pint-hoisting revelry.
