(Groningen, 2022 – now)
Rat Race starts out in 2022 as a show organization by Jeroen Klootsema/Glitch, Haico Menger/Frontsector and Tim Prins/Glitch. The intention is to put on strictly hardcore punk shows in Groningen on a regular basis.
In 2023 Tim decides to use the Rat Race moniker to release some of the music he’s involved in or just likes, obviously only in the hardcore punk spectrum as well. The concert organization and the label coexist mutually.
