Ireland! Shamrocks, shenanigans, sheep and pubs are some of the many highlights the Emerald Isle has to offer – that`s what Hungarian punk rockers Paddy And The Rats rightfully realized and quickly whipped out their fiddles and plugged in their guitars.
On April 6th you´ll be able to hear their new record ‘Riot City Outlaws’ to which they have released a new video clip now.

The song says is all: it`s one thing to dream about being Irish, but the Miskolc-based six piece instead brooded over a couple of cold beers and rum casks and decided to throw a hefty dose of pirate-isms, polka and gypsy punk into the mix! Their fifth album ‘Riot City Outlaws’ is a bold step into a bright future boosted by the raw and powerful production by Grammy winner Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth, Social Distortion, Pennywise). Both Webb and singer Paddy O`Reilly opted for a cool pop-punk approach in the vein of Green Day – overflowing with catchy choruses and dynamic up-tempo songs, Of course there are pirate party anthems like Join the Riot and One last Ale, as well as shanties such as Black Sails and Where Red Paints the Ocean equally show the darker side of life on the Seven Seas. Tipsy ballads Castaway and Another Life plus a healthy infusion of Irish influenced punk rock songs (Blow, Aerolites) round off a grimy pirate party bringing unwashed pub glory straight to your merry home!
‘Riot City Outlaws’ is available to pre-order from Napalm Records https://shop.napalmrecords.com/paddyandtherats
