Floridian metallic doomsayers Weltesser have debuted the official video for their new track “Rats” through Brooklyn Vegan. The crushing and dismal track, which is set to images of the innards of a decaying building, will appear on the group’s forthcoming Crestfallen LP, which is due out on February 10, 2017 via Prosthetic Records. Vocalist/guitarist Nate Peterson said the following regarding the new tune:
” ‘‘Rats’ is one of the key pieces in starting this band. One of the more straightforward songs, has more feeling than some others for me. This album is centered around the harder times and the emotions that came with them. Rats is about growing up in a punk scene and seeing some of my friends, the people I looked up to, do shitty things and gossip about other people. It really spiraled, which affected the DIY music scene. Watching my friends and the music scene fall apart changed me as a person. We all were on the same page when it was being written, and it still holds value to us so we wanted to rerecord it for the LP.“
