“As eclectic as Gorillaz and equally as addictive” – The Times

“A Ratatat number 1 is only a matter of time” Guardian Guide

“So florid and festooned with hooks, it’s as though they wish to make their instruments and sequencers ventriloquise pop melody for them” – The Wire

“LP4, while not sacrificing the duo’s trusted formula, is quite obviously protean to the hilt, with aural particulars interlocking with unprecedented intricacy.” – PopMatters (9/10)

Ratatat kick-off their first proper UK tour in support of LP4, their latest full-length which came out earlier this Summer on XL Recordings.  The band, having electrified crowds all over the world, return to the UK for a tour supporting Vampire Weekend, alongside some headline shows of their own.

LP4 is the 4th studio album from Ratatat (aka Evan Mast and Mike Stroud), and was primarily recorded at Old Soul Studios, in upstate New York, though this time around, Ratatat opted to work with a full string section at Glassworks Studios in Manhattan.  LP4 also features spoken word interludes from films by Werner Herzog and Terence Mallick.
