Here come the Rattles - A Great New Kids Music Group

About the GroupArmed with a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed fusion of classic rock and power pop, The Rattles are on a roll!  Parents, kids, and music lovers of all ages have been singing unanimous praises for ‘RATTLE ON’ (August 17th), the lively full-length debut from this furry musical menagerie – composed of life-long friends Gus, Sal, Hal, and Kitty.

Acclaimed parenting author and ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ Editor, Susan Heim referred to the album as “unique”, “catchy”, and “awesome” while Blissful Bee Blog recommended it to “anyone who has children that love music.”  The Clever Mommy Chronicles drew comparisons to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and Rilo Kiley, and raved, “Really, truly, the CD is fantastic. In fact, I was disappointed because it only has nine tracks.  I found myself wanting more.  That’s pretty big for a kids’ CD!”

To celebrate the ‘RATTLE ON’ album release, The Rattles recently unveiled their snazzy new official website,  This fully decked-out, colorful little corner of cyber-space allows The Rattles’ biggest fans to read up on the band’s back-story, listen to some groovy tunes, scope out a slew of tour photos, play interactive games, and shop for official band gear at the online store. There is even a special section for parents!

Also in support of their debut release, The Rattles are launching a special presale for ‘RATTLE ON’ offered directly to the fans, starting on August 10th.  All fans that purchase the album before its official release will receive a deluxe package with Rattles gear and a CD with one bonus video, courtesy of The Rattles themselves!

Stay tuned for more news about upcoming videos and tour dates!

My Take on the Group
My kids love listening to music so I am always willing to try out a new group! The kids were definitely intrigued with the cover art on this album and once we put the CD on they were hooked! The music was definitely upbeat and catchy and were tunes that even adults can love. As a person who always liked They Might Be Giants, I found this group to be similar (but geared more towards kids)!
