John Blek & The Rats have big news to share as they announce details about their second album, Borders, which is out on 18 September 2015 in Ireland.

‘Having spent a few years playing together we wanted to progress and evolve our sound with this album. The writing was very intuitive, these songs came together quite quickly, with the band featuring more prominently than previous recordings. Lyrically, I wanted to explore the contrasts of light and dark, examine the notions of right and wrong; to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed’, says John.

The band recently released a new single, ‘Wandering Child’. Listen to it and watch the video here:
