BAT, the unholy supergroup featuring Municipal Waste guitarist Ryan Waste on bass/vocals, former DRI drummer Felix Griffin and Volture guitarist Nick Poulos, is very pleased to announce their recent addition to this year's Gwar B-Q in Richmond, Virginia alongside the likes of The Descendents, Cro-Mags, Ghoul, Ringworm, Child Bite and more! The band's Gwar B-Q appearance follows a headlining performance in Raleigh and serves as a precursor to a rare run of live abrasions through Richmond, Cleveland, Chicago and Pittsburgh in September.

Comments Waste of the oncoming onstage demolitions, "After finishing up our debut full length album on Hells Headbangers this summer, we in BAT are gearing up for a short run around some rad US festivals. The first being the Gwar B-Q in our hometown of Richmond, which is always wet and wild. Come September, we hit the road again to play in Cleveland at the Hell's Headbash. We're thrilled to play with our pals in High Spirits and Midnight on the opening night. Beforehand, we're cramming in another hometown gig and hitting Chicago and Pittsburgh to round out the Labor Day weekend. Come rage with us and always beware of the BAT!"

The Virginia/Texas meta punk marauders in BAT released their Primitive Age EP last year on cassette via Tankcrimes and on 12" vinyl via Hells Headbangers (already sold out!). Channeling the spirits of Venom, Hellhammer, Motorhead and Discharge, the EP features five filthy numbers of confrontational Kill 'Em All angst and enough vocal venom to level a nation. Said Last Rites of the offering, "This nasty little beast is a crust-a-licious demo-nic hybrid of ugly gutter thrash with a vicious punk spirit and a dose of injected blackness. Jump back thirty years to an uncomfortable-yet-awesome three-way between Cronos, Lemmy, and Tom Warrior (or, whatever, Satanic Slaughter) - then BOOM, BAT! A close 21st-century equivalent would be Midnight, only with less sleazy Satanic debauchery and more of an all-encompassing generalized rebelliousness."

A statement from Ryan Waste reads: "We could not of found a better home for BAT than HELLS HEADBANGERS. Not only does the label have a great roster and distribution, they still have their ear to the underground. It's important for us to put out everything we do on vinyl, and there will be no shortage of BAT wax to come. We're gonna hit the road hard and start laying down tracks in the studio for our first full-length this fall. Expect another nasty onslaught of pain from Nick, Felix, and myself to follow up our Primitive Age demo. Beware of the BAT because we are not slowing down."

THE BEWITCHER MANIFESTO:

Rock n' Roll is the devil's music, and heavy metal is it's bastard child. In the 1980's, the radical fundamentalist Christian right-wing in America waged a war against this music, bringing it's practitioners and it's unholy muse to the forefront of the
public consciousness.

Over a quarter-century later, the devil's rock n' roll is still alive and well, but the war is far from over.

And so it came to pass...

In the year of Thirteen of Satan's third millennium, a new force rises to defend the ways of old. Bewitcher is the ancient black flame of magic, mayhem, freedom & liberation, burning in blatant opposition to the laughable norms of this modern age. Instead, they look to that bygone era, before it's pollution by crybaby emo-kids, when heavy metal in all it's glory truly represented the tenets it was founded upon.

May your children be corrupted, may your foundations
be shaken, may your mundane existences be forever altered, for this spell cannot be broken. Fall and obey! And beware the curse of the Bewitcher!
