Woah! I guess they weren’t kidding when they said “#yearoftherat”! Another tape comin’ at you! This time we have Bad Catman from Champaign. After taking a bit of a hiatus, these Folk Punkers got back together, to record this tape and go back into the world of playing shows.
This, along with Single Player’s “Are You There?” and Nectar’s demo will be available online Monday over at the Rat King Store. But if you’re in Champaign, come get all three at Error Record for Record Store Day!
Another announce! I’d love to introduce you all to Nectar, the solo project of Kamila Glowacki (Kowabunga! Kid, Chain’s Gang). This full band project has been cooking for a long time and finally the timer is up and it’s fresh. These pop songs are just in time for the spring sunshine.
Physical tape drops on the 21st of THIS MONTH! But you can grab a copy a few days early at Error Records on Record Store Day.
Champaign lifestyle magazine, the buzz has written an article featuring Kowabunga! Kid in which they talk about their future plans with Big John moving to Colorado and their plans for recording an LP.

A few weeks ago, Sean Neumann of Single Player sat down at Champaign record store Error Records to talk about his upcoming release, Are You There?.
Watch the whole thing for a stripped down version of one of my favorite songs from the release, Normal.
Super stoked to announce RKR-011. Single Player’s Are You There. This is the follow-up to last years Could Care Less and is super tight!
This upcoming release of ~~NINETEEN~~ catchy, irresistible songs. To me, this release shows Sean really coming to terms with who he is at every point of his life. Referring to certain ages he was, reminiscing, and even forecasting what will come of himself when he is 70. I (for one) hope he keeps that rock and roll dream alive well into his twilight.
Stream the song 21 and get stoked on the track list below!

I was approached by Brian Galecki that Springfield artist, Mike Tirehaus was wanting to release a comic. I have been following Mike’s art career for awhile, and was a huge fan of his previous work, Gamer Heaven, so I eagerly jumped at the idea of making this a proper Rat King release. I am very excited at how it turned out.
Limited to 40 Copies with beautifully screen printed, blue covers and thick stock pages. This comic consists of new material as well as remastered classics.
