"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


We haven't had enough of you yet! We're looking forward to playing with Cusses, Night Battles, Totally Slow, and King Buffalo over the next couple of months! Check out the shows  page to see where we'll be and who we'll be hanging with!

Irata and Sierra 2018 

We are happy to be heading out on the road once again, this time with label mates Sierra from Ontario. We'll be hitting the upper-east coast, and there are several NC dates as well. Head over to the shows page to see when we'll be near you!

Tour Time! 

We thought we were done with the road this year, but the itch has struck again. We'll be traipsing through the middle of the US with our good friends Caustic Casanova starting this Saturday in Dayton, OH, and ending in Albuquerque, NM.

These shows are going to be super-special because we'll have: A) Owen Burd making our sound even thicker and scarier than before B) Sweet Loris Vinyl!!! You wanted it, we have it!!! and C) New songs which will be on the upcoming album!

Go to our shows page to see when we'll be destroying your hometown.

New Member! 

Everyone please join us in welcoming Owen Burd to Irata! He'll be co-slaying on guitar, keys, vocals, carrying heavy shit, and terrorizing small children. 

We have some shows coming up that will be announced soon; you can catch the new lineup AND some brand new songs!



Doin' Stuff 

Hey! Huge thanks to everyone who came out to the shows the past couple of months! We had an absolute blast with our pals in Freedom Hawk and new buddies All Them Witches, and we couldn't have done it without you guys!
So, what's next? Well, we're working on getting Sweet Loris on vinyl, and writing some more music! We hope to have a new release out within the year. In the meantime, keep an eye on our shows page for special appearances near you!

Irata, back on tour in 2017 with All Them Witches. 

We are beyond thrilled to announce that we will be returning to the road in March, 2017 with Nashville band All Them Witches. This tour will be the first to take us out of the country for a couple dates in Canada. All dates for this tour are currently listed on the shows page, along with links to tickets; we recommend grabbing tickets soon, as all shows are expected to sell out.

Summer Tour has begun! 

Irata is steamrolling their way to the west coast! We've got dates in Texas, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Denver. Check out our shows page, and see whwn we'll be in your area!

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?!???!?
