Rat Boy Announces The Dumb & Confused Tour

Set to drop new music later this summer, RAT BOY and his band will hit the road with their riotous live show this November with The Dumb & Confused Tour. Opening at Nottingham Rock City, the tour will culminate with four special themed shows in each corner of London:

November 15th – East London, Oval Space – playing tracks from his early mixtapes.

November 16th – West London, Bush Hall – playing tracks from the present and future.

November 17th – South London, Electric Brixton – playing the ‘SCUM’ album in full.

November 18th – North London, Electric Ballroom – The setlist will be decided by a special fan vote via RAT BOY’s socials. Pick your favourite track: it could be a deep cut, a lost b-side or a cover of your choice.

Tickets go on sale on Monday 11th June and can be purchased from http://gigst.rs/RatBoy or for Edinburgh https://bit.ly/2JzeHZQ. They are priced £15 regionally, £18 for London and £16.50 for Edinburgh.

Fronted by 22-year-old Jordan Cardy, RAT BOY emerged as a hot tip when he won Best New Artist at the NME Awards and was nominated for the BBC Sound poll. His debut album ‘SCUM’ earned widespread critical acclaim and hit the Top 20 when it was released last summer. He commenced 2018 by dropping the seven-track ‘CIVIL DISORDER’, a ferocious cocktail of contemporary hip-hop, 70s British punk and 80s American hardcore.

A whirlwind of energy, RAT BOY’s live shows often receive such a frenzied reaction that Cardy has to pause to appeal for calm. His biggest headline to date saw him hit London’s Roundhouse and he has also toured with Liam Gallagher and The 1975.

In addition to The Dumb & Confused Tour, RAT BOY will also play some select summer festival dates:


1st – Community Festival

19th – Truck Festival (Market Stage headliner)

20th – Tramlines

27th – Leopallooza


2nd – Bestival

31st – Bingley Music Live
