22.10.23: The End: Album Release "Blastoff to Nowhere"

In spring 2020, Rat.Ten went separate ways, just as our favourite squats, autonomous spaces and anarchist projects always change and become something else. We all struggle on in our way and there will always be more music projects for some of us, some even with songs from Rat.Ten.

The good news is, we just managed to record our latest songs at the same time, for the album "Blastoff to Nowhere". This Album is now released and you can download it from here or from Bandcamp (Where we might get a kick from the downloads stats - our own website doesn't log anything). It was meant to be quickly followed by a third album, for which we already had almost all the songs, but the title became prophetic. Our band went separate ways just as society self-isolated itself. After a while we found a nice person (Ben Rehkotzt) who mixed our recordings for us, and fate struck again. The working files vanished after the laptop on which they were stored disappeared after a wild punk concert in a basement in Halle. All that remains are the half finished that is what you get to hear now on this album. We don't want to delay anymore, as we're all involved in new projects and we want to move forward - just as the struggle for a better world must move forward, especially in times like these. Okay, this has gotten long enough. Enjoy our Music if you remember us, and we'll see each other at diy shows and on the streets. Thanks to everybody who has supported us over the years, it was one hell of a rocket ship ride with Maurice.

28.12.20: BackToPolitics - Soli Sampler

Die Tonne in Wangen hat dieses Jahr statt Punkfescht nach Weihnachten eine Zusammenstellung guter Musik aus den letzten Jahren gemacht. Reinhören lohnt sich! Wir freuen uns, dass wir zum Sampler beitragen durften. Unterstützt unsere Freiräume (und erkämpft auch neue)!

23.12.19: Rat.Ten - LIVE! …dans le Quartier Libre des Lentilléres

Just a few days ago, we had a great gig in Dijon, at the Grange Rose in the Quartier Libre des Lentilléres, where they just managed to stop a major development project which would have turned the whole area into a concrete urban jungle. We taped the concert there on a good old small handheld recorder, and as a gift to all those fighting out there right now, we present a live album, almost the complete concert in Dijon, available as a download from Bandcamp!

We're also hard at work on our upcoming first "real" album, whatever that stay tuned, and we'll see each other on the streets in the meantime.

22.09.18: EP Release

EP Release! We finally have managed to commit our first songs to "digital tape". The EP is available in CD-Form with booklet directly from us (at every gig, or write us an E-mail) or as a download from Bandcamp. We'd really appreciate donations, so we can record the first full-length album as soon as possible. We're excited to get your feedback, enjoy!

01.12.17: First Gig!

Finally we will stand on stage! Our first gig is together with Malfunc Prism in the KTS in Freiburg im Breisgau on the 15th of December. Come by, enjoy the noise and drink a beer with us ;-)
