Rat Stomp also has a small following in Europe, which was ignited by their performances in the UK in 2012 . Rat Stomp is occasionally interviewed and featured on local radio stations KVMR 89.5 FM  and KDVS 90.3 FM.

Rat Stomp released a self-titled album in January 2012 (recorded live in the kitchen with original drummer George Salazar).
