THE RATCHETS want you to know that they?ve rolled back into town. Guitars in tow, their new record First Light in hand, they?re ready to continue pushing their musical boundaries to deliver on their unique brand of punk that fans have come to know and love. This album is fresh, full of hooks, artful lyrics, and politically, with everything going on in the world - is just on-point.

Following the release of Glory Bound (Pirates Press Records? first LP) in 2006, THE RATCHETS were hailed by many as an integral part of the answer to a world without THE CLASH. First Light, full of its gunslinger politics and humanist tendencies, is a statement piece from a band who?s long since cornered the market on authenticity. From the rousing power-pop hit ?Gotta Be Cool,? to the punchy socio-political commentary of ?Dotard At The Dial,? THE RATCHETS cover a lot of terrain jamming out proto-punk bangers, ballads, and everything in between.

With this album, THE RATCHETS show us that they?ve been carving their own path this whole time, somewhere between the real world and the stuff of rock and roll dreams. So whether you?ve been here since the beginning, or are new to the party, we present First Light as a shining example of why THE RATCHETS hold a special place in the hearts and playlists of so many die-hard music fans across the globe.

It?s been a long drive though the night but First Light is here at a time when it?s so desperately needed!
