John Blek & The Rats announce the release of their second album, ‘Borders’

An album that captures the band shaking off their ramshackle beginnings and committing to tape a collection of new songs with a cohesive sonic richness, that embrace a fuller, fuzzier sound while striking a balance between experimentation and the tunefulness for which they have become known.

This is the sound of John Blek & The Rats exploring their own musical chemistry, a band evolving, breaking down barriers and crossing new ‘Borders’.


We are delighted to announce the release of our second album 'Borders' on 18th of September.

We launch the album with two shows as part of this year's Coughlan's Live Music Festival on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th of September. Tickets are on sale now at the links below:

Thursday 24th September

Friday 25th September
