Irish Rockers BATS Share Lead Single From First Album in Seven Years – Here’s ‘OLD HITLER’…

Brand new sonic impulses

12 August 2019

Irish metal/post-hardcore and danceable post-punk rockers BATS formed in 2006, released two albums and an EP, but got silent since 2012. Today they announced
their new longplayer ALTER NATURE and shared lead-single OLD HITLER. From a
band’s press statement we learn that “Old Hitler was a legendary giant hammerhead
shark, nicknamed by US naval officers in the midst of WWII.”
And now it’s also a mind-boggling missile, a rip-roaring hammer and a vicious, head-banging beast. Arrghh!

Here’s the lyric video…
