Menace Beach have made their debut album available ahead of its release on Monday.

The Leeds based band are streaming their debut album Ratworld via Hype Machine, before its release on Memphis Industries.

The band was formed after the breakup of Derby band Komakino, whose vocalist Ryan Needham now shares vocal duties with Liza Violet in Menace Beach.

The pair are joined by Hookworms singer Matthew ‘MJ’ Johnson on guitar and production duties, Nestor Matthews of Sky Larkin on drums, and Matt Spalding of You Animals on bass.

Their debut album was recorded in Johnson’s studios last summer.

The band is also offering an entirely alternative version of the album, named Drawlrot, on cassette and download for free for anyone who buys Ratworld from an independent record shop or from their official website.

They will head out on an 11-date tour later this month, which includes a gig at The Castle on January 26.
