"IRATA from Greensboro, NC...not only know the right way to rock; they are fully unconcerned with the trends of today. (They) make raw, unrelenting rock music that grooves when it's supposed to, crushes when it needs to and will leave you wanting more." - Keith Chachkes of Metal Distro

More shows in 2016! 

Thank you so much to everybody who came out for our March tour. We had so much fun traveling with Caustic Casanova, and getting to play in places we've never been to before. Keep an eye on our shows page; we've got several already scheduled for the next few months, including a run with Asheville's Bask in May. More summer shows will be added soon, along with a possible tour announcement?!???!? 


Good health, new shows! 

After a brief recovery period, Jason has completely healed from his injury/illness, and Irata is back! We have several NC shows scheduled throughout the first few months of 2016; check out our shows page (www.iratalive.com/shows) to see where we'll be!

Also, if you live in the upper/middle eastern part of the US, keep your eyes and ears open. We'll be announcing a March tour with dates in your area soon!

Irata announces new album, tour. 

Hey everybody! We are super stoked to announce the upcoming release of our new full-length album, Sweet Loris. It will be available on CD and in digital formats on October 9, 2015. Vinyl lovers, fear not! You all will have something to play with, hopefully by the end of the year.
