Fresh from announcing new album ‘Internationally Unknown’, Rat Boy has shared a video for new track ‘Chip On My Shoulder’ from the record. In the clip, we see Rat Boy’s Jordan Cardy skateboarding around Los Angeles during the recording of the new album. You can see the new video below.
Rat Boy’s second album was made alongside punk legends Rancid’s Tim Armstrong in LA and will be out in January.
“I wanted to do this completely differently because [debut album] ’SCUM’ took so long, and I was learning the whole way through making it,” Jordan Cardy says of the new collaboration.
“I wanted to make something more personal and raw, which reflected me more. I was trying to find that sweet spot between hip-hop and punk, and Tim really understands that stuff. I’ve never really spoken to anyone else who love hip-hop and punk like I do.”

Besides being a musician, Jordan Cardy is also a dab hand with a pen and paper. So, obviously, we interviewed him via the medium of drawing.
Rat Boy’s a whole a lot smarter than he’s ever allowed himself to be shown as.
