Really love their first album but hardly ever listen to it as not on Spotify. I think I bought it on iTunes but never use that anymore.

3 euros on their bandcamp!

thank you for your invitation to this thread. i enjoy the musical stylings of popular beat combo BATS and am somewhat excited for their new long player.

Could have sworn they said they were recording the 3rd album “soon” early last year? That it went completey silent afterwards had me worried. Glad that there’s more stuff coming.

Hope they do a good sized tour, doesn’t seem like they (ever?) play that many shows.

there can’t be that many bands whose name can be reversed to spell another word. Offhand I can only think of one: the Enid (ENID <-> DINE).

Speed of Snakes (Rupert from BATS and Vinny from Adebisi Shank) album out on St Patrick’s Day

Excellent artwork.

The Sleep of Reason art always reminds me of the Alien films.

Kickstarter/pre-order release is out now on MP3. Think the vinyl has arrived, but I need to get it from the post office later.

Diving in now, already sounds huge.

Didn’t realise it was going to arrive today, but it’s a nice surprise that it has. Looking forward to sticking it on over the weekend. The shirt it came with is great too.
