Swedish Hard Rockers DEAF RAT will support legendary JUDAS PRIEST at their show in Dalhalla, Sweden on June 13, 2020.
Deaf Rat released the album “Ban The Light” in late 2019 which received great reviews from the metal press. The band recently confirmed a 13 show European tour together with Swedish fellow classic rock act H.E.A.T which will take off during May and bring the bands to Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland.
DEAF RAT‘s first album “Ban The Light” came out on 1st November and today, the band has another earcandy to tease us: The Swedish Hard Rock hopefuls release their third single “Tying You Down“ via all streaming services.
The album “Ban The Light” is inspired by yesterday’s and tomorrow’s evening news, where politics and religion are used to justify horrible acts. The album tells the story of people stuck in a world where free will is taken away, slowly, step by step, without anyone noticing. The first stroke of DEAF RAT was produced by Erik Berglund and is the soundtrack of a dark and grainy dystopia, a should-have-been-made movie directed by the Devil with a cast of thoroughly bad men and evil women. Basic tracks were recorded live in the band’s own Ballroom Studios in Falun, to capture as much as possible of the band’s on-stage energy.
“Ban The Light” was released on 1st November via AFM Records. The album is available as CD and Clear Red Vinyl, limited down to 300 pieces.
Are you already in the right mood for Halloween? DEAF RAT definitely are! Their new single “Hail The End Of Days” is a dark and sinister hymn for the lost and forsaken that breathes the spirit of Rock’n Roll and Hard Rock legends. The new song foreshadows “Ban The Light“, the first album of the band that will be out on 1st November via AFM Records.
DEAF RAT have released the first single of their upcoming album “Ban The Light”. “Fallen Angels” is a catchy song breathing the air of the golden Rock’n’Roll days – and foreshadows the debut of DEAF RAT that will be out on 1st November via AFM Records.

A light will be illuminating the dark season: DEAF RAT will release their debut album „Ban The Light“ via AFM Records on 1st November.
With their first stroke, the Swedish Hard Rock band serves a dark longplayer with heavy riffs, strong melodies and seductive tunes to twist your mind.
The title was taken from the first song that was written for the album – an emotional masterpiece about being different and about standing up for your individuality towards prejudicing people.
Singer Frankie Rich states: “I had a rough time in school being different in every possible way. I had a funny name, red curly hair, parents from a different country. On Top of that I was listening to KISS and WASP while the kids in my school listened to Backstreet Boys and The Spice Girls. I was miserable from being made fun of because I was different”.
„Ban The Light“ is a statement for everyone who has been made fun of in school, had people pointing fingers behind their backs in the street, or have had to put up with comments at work because of the way they dress, what music they’re in to or just because of the way they are.
„Ban The Light“ will be available as CD and Clear Red Vinyl (limited to 300 pieces).
