Regional/Country Western Australia circa 2007; your music taste was imported directly via Surf/Skate videos from the US, you’ve just crashed the family computer by downloading Linkin_Park_InTheEnd.exe from LimeWire and you’re riding your bike to the local pub to try sneak in your first underage pint. These rites of passage are common thread for Jaz, Erica and Ken aka RATSALAD, the band walking a fine line between the riff-heavy punk giants from the US that they grew up with, while staying true to their uniquely Australian experience and voice.

Forming in 2019, RS got busy writing and recording before finally releasing their debut track ‘Dead Rat’ in the same year, a simple ode to the mouse that died behind the oven unit stinking out the kitchen in which RATSALAD write and rehearse. This track went onto to win the 2020 WA Music Song of the Year award under the Heavy/Metal category, which marked the start of RATSALADs prolific run of WA music award domination, as the inspired trio went on to win the WA Music Song of the Year award for the next three years running under the Punk/Hardcore category (2021, 2022, 2023). Now despite being located 400km North of the worlds most isolated city, RATSALAD are moving strength to strength, playing sold-out shows everywhere while supporting everyone, be it the likes of Aussie punk icons such as Bodyjar and Frenzal Rhomb (2023), to Aria winning prog-metal world beaters Karnivool (2020), or with straight up rock royatly Eskimo Joe (2023), to indie up and comers Old Mervs (2024), hell, they even got the call up from their favourite AFL footy team the Fremantle Dockers to open up their AFLW pride round clash last season!

Come meet ya new best mates, see the Aussie Pub Punk Rock band making waves, RATSALAD in a town near you soon!
