It's been a long road to album three! The music landscape has changed, more and more the album has become secondary to a constant stream of singles. Digital formats dominating like a hell-beast made of 1's and 0's. The physical becoming more and more niche. Well BATS say "To hell with that!" We've spent the last 7 years honing and crafting a very deliberate set of songs with precision and dedication. A sequence of massive tunes meant to be heard as a whole piece and, we are proud to say, will be immortalised on wax for the first time in BATS' unusual history.
Remember the days when you would buy an album in town and gaze at it on the bus-ride home, wondering what treasures it held? Throwing it on and reading the liner notes and lyrics like some ancient text that needs decrypting? Well BATS are here to bring that back for you. We've recorded a terrible monster and now need your help to bring it over the finish line. As an independent band playing non-commercial science-based tunage, we need your help to pay for the mastering, printing, PR, music video costs, quaaludes, burnt offerings to Nyarlathotep etc...
We extend a fond thanks and induct you into the BATS league of honour.
UPDATE: RITAC Vinyl Stretch goal €12,000...
If we get past €12,000, we're planning to reissue a remastered vinyl of Red and Tooth and Claw with exclusive bonus material.
RITAC has been sold out for at least 7 years and in that time has been frequently requested on Vinyl. NOW it looks like we could finally put it back out there!
Thanks so much for all your support so far.
