The Ratchets – “First Light” Is OUT TODAY, Along With Back Catalog Re-Issues & “ESSENTIALS” Box Set!

OUT TODAY! PIRATES PRESS RECORDS is thrilled to announce the release of FIRST LIGHT, the brand new, long-awaited, hotly anticipated second LP from New Jersey punk rock & rollers THE RATCHETS! Delivering on the promises of all that came before it, this record is both a return to form and a continued pushing out of the boundaries, comprised of 11 songs worth of the band’s signature punky reggae party with a socio-political conscience and a heart firmly on its sleeve.
