Hear Cloud Rat’s new ripper, “Inner Controller”

Cloud Rat

Michigan grindcore outfit Cloud Rat recently announced that they’re releasing a new album, Threshold, out October 6 via Artoffact Records. And today, they’ve shared the second single, “Inner Controller (Lucid Running Home)”. The new single, all one minute and 40 seconds of it, is an absolute ripper, and features a video washed in VHS distortion.

Vocalist Madison Marshall says in a press release, “‘Inner Controller (Lucid Running Home)’ is about becoming enlightened by letting go of everything, accepting Kali and letting her destroy you. It touches on themes of self-hatred and body horror, despising parts of yourself so much that entities begin to manifest. And the idea of death feeling like sleep.” The group are also touring in Europe with HIDE. Check out those dates below.

Threshold follows 2019’s Pollinator.
