INCLUDES LONDON SHOW AT THE 02 FORUM ON SEPTEMBER 22 ND
“The cheeky and punk rock project of 19 year old Essex newcomer Jordan Cardy delivers upon his growing buzz.” – THE FADER
“A potent mix of Blur’s cockney knees-up side, the urgency of The Libertines and Beastie Boys’ in-yer- face raps.” – NME
“Rat Boy is the next in the lineage of Ian Dury and Mike Skinner.” – Noisey
“One of the UK’s most exciting new acts.” – DIY
After a sold-out UK tour in May which included headlining Brixton Electric, the rise of RAT BOY continues with the confirmation of his largest headline tour to date kicking off on September 16 th in Sheffield and includes a date at London’s 02 Forum, Kentish Town on September 22nd .
Building a reputation as a riotous live performer (an NME Gig of the Week review stated “Essex indie rapper Jordan Cardy destroys the kitchen at a chaotic house party gig” and his performance at Heaven received a 4* live review from The Times), every single RAT BOY headline gig has been sold-out.
It’s been a busy year for RAT BOY so far, featured on the BBC Sound of 2016 longlist, the MTV Brand New for 2016 shortlist, nominated for Best New Artist at the NME Awards, and played his own biggest headline tour, he’s also preparing to introduce himself to his biggest audiences so far when he plays festivals across the UK and Europe this Summer, including Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading and Leeds.
