"Liquid Tuesdaze/The New Colors/Year of the Rat @ Logan's Pub [Oct.28th, 2010]"

"Samuel Coll switches from guitar to keyboard and can also excite the crowd without an instrument at all...I was really blown away by an almost perfect set." - Band Night


The Code EP - 2010

-Track #2 (Doctor, Please) from this album was selected by S.L.A.M. magazine to be included in their digital download catalog, distributed at major events such as the Vans Warped Tour.



Three guys got together over a craigslist ad. They discovered that they all enjoyed the sound of a good synthesizer. They bought a synthesizer, added some guitars, then found a drummer floating around on the internet. Gigs ensued. Songs were written. Myspace pages were put up, then an album was recorded. Fans started to come--they appreciated the careful blending of polarities: anger and calm, urgency and assiduousness.

Year of the Rat knows something is up with the world. They're not really interested in changing it: after all, what can four guys with instruments do? But they want to chronicle it. When the world is nothing more than ashes and cobwebs, they want the alien visitors to find their albums buried underneath the filth, and to enjoy the subtleties humanity's contradictory nature as much as they do.

Year of the Rat isn't here to change your mind. They just want to use their music to show you that your mind has already been changed by someone else.
