Download - Dead Confederate "The Rat" + Tour

We've been following the Southern fried psych-rock awesomeness of Dead Confederate for nearly a year now. In fact, we liked them so much we invited them to rock a Tripwire Acoustic Session for us last spring. The band has completed work on their debut full-length album, Wrecking Ball, which was recorded in the same Austin, TX studio where sound effects for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre were taped. The disc will be available in stores on September 16 via TAO Records, and we've got a track from the release to share with you. To get an early taste of what is to come, download the MP3 of the familiar track "The Rat" below.

The guys are also hitting the road in support of their debut album, with one show in Atlanta left this month and then kicking off a full tour in September. These dudes rule live, so don't miss out!
