Bat Fangs

with No Love, S.E. Ward


Time: 9:00PM

Admission: $12 | All Ages

Doors: 8:00PM

On February 2nd, Don Giovanni Records released the self-titled debut record by Washington, D.C. / Carrboro, NC super-ghouls, Bat Fangs.

Formed in 2016 by guitarist/singer Betsy Wright (Ex Hex) and drummer Laura King (Flesh Wounds, Speed Stick), the duo specialize in prescription-strength shred and churn meant to stiffen the upper lip and crack the third-eye. Slick and sick visions channeled from the midnight mirror world. Acid-soaked hard-rock to thrill the living and raise dead.

The band began just as Wright’s other gig, Ex Hex, settled down for an extended breather. After two years touring as a bassist, she was eager to reconnect with the electric guitar and to push her pop-songwriting into freakier territory. She sent a few demos to King, who signed on to play drums. Together, they pushed the music into a deeper, more overtly psychedelic space.

Recorded earlier this year, Bat Fangs’ debut includes nine tracks engineered by Mike Montgomery at Candyland Studio in Dayton, Kentucky and mixed by Matt Boynton (Gang Gang Dance, Kurt Vile). Rooted in the pop-metal of time beyond memory, the tunes are spiritually corrupted, but also boldly anthemic. Thunder and feedback meant to demolish the airwaves and unfold the collective cranium.
