Beach Rats - Rat Beat (Translucent Clear Vinyl, Indie Exclusive)
LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER.
Against the backdrop of Asbury Park, NJ rock and punk history comes BEACH RATS.
With a membership that includes four impossible-to-avoid New Jersey punk stalwarts including Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, Bad Religion), Ari Katz (Lifetime), Bryan Kienlen and Pete Steinkopf (The Bouncing Souls) and rounded out by Danny Windas, AKA "Dubs" on drums. Beach Rats play a brand of hardcore/punk that stays true to their members' roots while creating something completely fresh and urgent. "I had moved to Asbury Park," recounts guitarist Brian Baker. "And it turned out that Pete [Steinkopf] and Bryan [Kienlan] from the Bouncing Souls were sniffing around and had the idea to do a fun side-band with Ari Katz from Lifetime. They had recently played together at a memorial for Dave Franklin [Vision frontman, R.I.P.] and had a blast. That was the foundation of it. Like most of my career, I walked into a pre-existing situation, ready to go. They were talking about it and I was immediately like, 'I want to be in a band! Bands are great, let's go!" The common denominator for BEACH RATS for was simple. "It's a mix of the Jersey Shore thing and a bunch of guys that can endlessly create 80's hardcore riffs because we were there," states Bryan Kienlan. "You're gonna get authentic punk and hardcore from BEACH RATS because we are all from the 80's. It's literally taking it back to some of our biggest influences like Negative Approach and Poison Idea, And of course, Minor Threat."

We're so fortunate to have wonderful vinyl community customers who continue to leave us wonderful reviews about the Rock This Town Records online shop.
How We Ship Vinyl
As vinyl collectors ourselves, we're very concerned with the way that our favorite online record stores ship vinyl. Our goal is to always be as good as the very best, so we've invested a lot into the process.
All vinyl records we sell are brand new and factory-sealed.
What We Do
- We inspect every record when it arrives checking for any damage like bent corners, seam splits, and creases. Those records are flagged, set aside, and are only offered as damaged in our shop.
- We ship all vinyl with the WHIPLASH V03 mailer considered by many the best vinyl record mailers in the world.
What We Don't Do
- Unfortunately at the moment, we do not ship internationally. We hope to offer international shipping in 2022.
- We do not recommend package-forwarding companies. If you are outside the United States and decide to order from us using a package-forwarding company, we only guarantee delivery to the shipping address you've provided. Once delivered to that address by the USPS or UPS, WE ARE NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PACKAGE and you assume all risk for the remainder of the delivery. WE DO NOT OFFER RETURNS OR REFUNDS for items that package-forwarding companies fail to deliver to you.
