The Rat Bastard Syndicate is the culmination of Steve Theado and Keith Pickens' long association in American Dog, having written hundreds of songs together, toured the world together and having similar musical tastes. Lennard James compliments this association with a thundering low-end and killer vocal style. This band is LOUD, DIRTY and REAL. What you see/hear is what it is. Uncompromising and generally ill-behaved, too old to give a shit and too stubborn to give up. This is The Rat Bastard Syndicate.
