As Tāmaki Makaurau noise rockers Swallow The Rat jet away to the US for an extensive March tour (including an official SXSW showcase event), they've unleashed the latest single from their new album Leaving Room, dropping in April via Texas imprint Shifting Sounds. Sounding fresh-faced on 'Bird of Ill', Swallow The Rat's song glides forwards at a breakneck pace before dive-bombing into a dense thicket of furious squalling guitars. As a bonus, the team of Sam Vercoe, Brian Purington, Hayden Fritchley and Stephen Horsley have also revealed eye-popping animated visuals for 'Bird of Ill', directed by Kyle Sattler. Horsley opened up about the themes orbiting Swallow The Rat latest tune...

“This is a song about self pity and addiction destroying a relationship. The protagonist of the story needs to stop finding excuses and take steps to improve the situation”

Swallow The Rat play throughout the US in March, head over to their Facebook page here for tour details.
