Published Apr 24, 2014Coming off the recent release of Ratking's debut LP, So It Goes, the New York rap trio have announced a quick stretch of North American dates that will have them up in Canada for a pair of performances.
The outfit currently already had a couple of U.S. festival appearances and a European tour on lock this spring, but an extra handful of North American shows to keep them busy this June. This includes an up-north stop at Montreal's La Sala Rossa on June 19, as well as their previously revealed participation in this year's NXNE festival. You'll find the band's tour schedule down below.
Exclaim!'s recent review of So It Goes described Ratking as "new, fresh, young rap with an edge," praising the LP as a "kaleidoscope of soundscapes equally indebted to electronic, indie rock and the traditional rap blueprint."
You can peep the video for the set's "Canal" beneath the tour info.
