Anglo-Kiwi rockers DESPERATE MEASURES return this week with a brand new video and live dates.

'Back To The Rats' is the band's first new material since the widely acclaimed mini-album Rinsed, which came out through Easy Action in the autumn of 2021. Since then they've been playing whenever and wherever, sharing stages with The Professionals, Spear Of Destiny, The Boys, The Wingmen and Killing Joke.

Set for release on 12 May, 'Back To The Rats' is available to stream/download from Apple, Amazon, Spotify and all the usual platforms.
