Rats, the second album, was released on 15 October 2012. It has 10 tracks and three singles among them: The Oldest Of Sisters, Do Not Claim Them Anymore and Sinking Ship. At the Music Industry Award in 2012, Balthazar won the award for best album for their album Rats. Recognition for the album went beyond Belgium and the Netherlands, in France the prestigious newspaper Libération claimed Rats was the best album released in 2012.

The second album, Rats, was released on 15 October 2012 in Europe, excluding the UK. This was again produced by Jinte Deprez and Maarten Devoldere. The album was mixed by Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, The Strokes) in Los Angeles. On 26 January 2015 Balthazar released the single "Then What", which preceded the album "Thin Walls" that released two months later. Then What was generally well received, with among others a first place in Studio Brussel's Afrekening for four weeks in a row. "Thin Walls" was released on 30 March 2015 and is their first album where a producer is involved.

Hailing from the small Belgian town Kortrijk, a city bursting with creative talent, Balthazar debuted a couple of years ago with the dificult to catagorize but splendid Applause, an album that's hard to pinpoint but having a level of magnificence rarely seen within the Belgian music scene. Well deserved, the album achieved small success internationally, resulting in the follow-up Rats being given an international release right from the start. Needless to say, my expectations and those of many fellow countrymen were raised to sky-level for this one.

The Oldest of Sisters.
