Chicago indie rockers Ratboys have announced some new U.S. tour dates for this spring in honor of their latest album, The Window, which was #1 on our Top 100 Albums of 2023 list. Ducks Ltd. will support all dates of the March/April tour. Check out all the tour dates below, followed by Ratboys’ recent performance of “It’s Alive” for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #LateShowMeMusic series, their three recent performances on CBS Saturday Morning, and their full session for KEXP, as well as a stream of their album.

Read our the interview with Ratboys on The Window here and read our rave review of the album here.

Ratboys—composed of members Julia Steiner (guitar, vocals), Dave Sagan (guitar), Marcus Nuccio (drums), and Sean Neumann (bass)—ventured to Seattle to work with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, Tegan and Sara, Foxing) when making The Window. The album was almost fully crafted before heading into the studio, but Walla pushed the band to expand their vision, adding unexpected instruments such as rototoms, talkboxes, and fiddles.

Ratboys previously shared various singles from the album: “It’s Alive” (which was #1 on our Songs of the Week list), “Black Earth, WI” (which also made our Songs of the Week list), “The Window” (also one of our Songs of the Week), and “Morning Zoo” (again a Songs of the Week pick).

Toronto-based duo Ducks Ltd. are releasing a new album, Harm’s Way, on February 9 via Carpark.
