Auckland's Swallow The Rat have unveiled their latest single, a deep-diving slice of noise-rock titled 'New Cross'. A four-piece featuring members of Kerretta, Lost Rockets, My Education and Deathbeam, the cacophonous crew of Will Waters, Sam Vercoe, Brian Purington and Hayden Fritchley are kicking off a national tour this week in celebration of their scathing new song.
