Glasgow two-piece Honeyblood will release ‘Super Rat’, the lead single from their s/t debut album on July 21, shortly after the album’s release on July 14.
An air-punching tune of seismic proportions with the rather memorable chanted chorus line, “I will hate you forever”, it’s one dishevelled summer anthem that’ll likely be resung, screamed and shouted in any number of scenarios for some time.
Frontwoman Stina Tweedale recounts of the song’s creation: “‘Super Rat’ was written to cheer a friend up when she was feeling down.
“It’s a fun and happy song at its heart.
“Everyone needs to let off a little steam now and again.
“This song lets me do that every time we play it.”
‘Super Rat’ follows a flurry of radio support for earworm single ‘Killer Bangs’ across Radio 1 and 6Music.
Having just announced their first full headline tour taking the band to all corners of the UK this September, Honeyblood will also return to the States in July.
Full details of the 13-date UK headline run are below, with tickets on sale now.
With escalating acclaim across Europe and the US, the duo are fresh off tour with close comrade Courtney Barnett on her recent sellout tour that finished last week, as well as recent stints with both Real Estate and Angel Olsen.
May’s outing took in festivals such as The Great Escape and Dot To Dot festivals as well as a coveted homecoming place at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
Honeyblood’s self-titled record is scheduled for July 14.
