NEW ALBUM DUE OUT 10TH OCTOBER 2019
Today, Dublin avant-rock 5-piece BATS have announced details of their first new album in 7 years, ‘Alter Nature’, and have shared the first single to be taken from the record, ‘Old Hitler’.
‘ALTER NATURE’ is a full-frontal attack to all of the senses. BATS incredibly idiosyncratic and cacophonous yet entirely rousing experimental noise-rock delves into intelligent and complex territory both lyrically and musically, but BATS understand that it need not exclude it from having a raw, rhythmic energy and a strong sense of melody.
This translates perfectly into their live shows and has seen the band earn plaudits and fans playing alongside the likes of The Locust, These Arms Are Snakes, The Jesus Lizard, Gang Gang Dance, Sebadoh and Chrome Hoof. BATS will also play this year’s ArcTanGent festival with further live dates TBA.
7 years in the making, the band have purposefully set about honing and crafting these tracks with precision and dedication. If you’re lucky enough to have heard BATS before or have even seen them live, then this incredibly strong third effort should be instantly recognisable as a consummate and direct snapshot of the devastatingly efficient unit; let alone as another step towards wherever the band might take themselves. If you’re still yet to hear them, then you could have picked no better space-time.
‘ALTER NATURE’ is due out 10th October – pre-order HERE
