Next month, Washington, D.C. / Carrboro, NC dup Bat Fangs will release their self-titled debut LP on Don Giovanni Records. Today, you can watch the duo’s “Rock the Reaper”. The clip was directed by Drew Hagelin, who has worked on videos for Flasher and Priests and is also part of the Washington, D.C. band, Cigarette.
In February, the duo will perform a handful of shows on the East coast and then head West for a week’s worth of dates opening for Superchunk.
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.
