Ratboys & Dowsing // Tour Kickoff + Split Out Today!

Today is a big day for Ratboys and Dowsing! In addition to kicking off the European leg of their World Tour (with Kevin in tow), their Split EP is also out! We first heard about Ratboys from Dowsing, so it's only fitting that we're luck enough to be releasing a split with both bands. Thank goodness they like each other because this is a crap ton of shows that they are doing together. Oh yeah, they'll also have the split on vinyl and cassette at the shows.

Tour info: http://www.topshelfrecords.com/ratboystour

Grab your copy of the Split EP today!
