HEAVY PLANET presents...HUGE RAT ATTACKS
Huge Rat Attacks was formed 2002 in Minneapolis, MN by two brothers, Jason and Justin Oehrlein, in their parent's basement. Soon, they were joined by their good friend, Casey Holmgren, who brought his bass as well as the band name just in time for their first album 'Montana'. They toured the country with Tora! Tora! Torrance! several times until !TTT! broke up in 2004. Jon Tester (guitarist with !TTT!) united with the Huge Rats shortly thereafter. Jon dove right in and Huge Rat Attacks' sound was finally complete. They recorded their sophomore album 'Cougars' a few months later, expanding on their already full sound.
In 2007, during a band hiatus, Justin moved to Los Angeles and Jon moved to Denver. Neither would be gone long, and when they returned in 2009, the band reformed and starting writing new material. They recorded their third full-length 'Organic Babies' with Neil Weir at the Old Blackberry Way during several recording sessions in 2012. The album's sound shows the band maturing and honing in on their Black Sabbath-meets-Grunge influences.
