track from the forthcoming 12-track release, entitled 'Rat
The album will be the Phoenix outfit's fourth outing since

into the in 2007.
Curt Kirkwood, the band's singer/guitarist
described the album as "real blown-up folk music".
"I tried to write stuff that would stand on its own - just the

those things where a lot of times, in the past especially, [bassist
Cris Kirkwood] would go, 'Well, that's all there is? Let's put a
prog rock part in the middle.' But I tried to hold it off as much
as I could."
'Rat Farm' will be released on 16th April in the
UK and 17th in the US through Megaforce Records.
