2006 was a good year for Evan Mast and Mike Stroud, the partners in crime that make up Ratatat.

This past autumn the band toured in support of their second full-length, Classics and played to sold-out audiences in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Philadelphia, ending with a very high profile performance at the Guggenheim Museum on November 6 and a one-off DJ set opening for Goldfrapp. They’ve since toured the U.S. some more with The Faint, and the Classics World Tour has and will include stops in Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, Estonia, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

There’s still plenty for you folks in the U.S. to look forward to in 2007, since they’ll be back in the U.S. this SPRING!

Also, a new mixtape with 14 new remixes is coming soon!

Check out a sample MP3: (seriously, check it out!)
Z-ro, Devin the Dude & Juvenile – The Mule (Ratatat Remix)


“By the end of this album, the listener will still be unsure of whether to call this a rock record or a dance record, but the truth of the matter is, it’s both, so just enjoy it.” – Amplifier

“Although you won’t see Mike Stroud’s name in the usual guitar hero mags, he may be the most original, talented and inventive guitarist to come along in the new millennium.” – Future Music Mag

“Thankfully, with Classics, Ratatat have reinvented themselves, incorporating downbeat rhythms, space-age synths and more fully realized electronica to create a sound that’s truly indefinable.” – HARP

“On wax, Mike Stroud and Evan Mast infuse stadium-sized rock music with Timbaland-sized bounce, a block-rocking formula they established on their debut and developed on this year’s Classics.” – Pitchfork
