Betsy Wright is the bassist for DC power pop trio Ex Hex. Laura King is drummer for North Carolina garage rockers Flesh Wounds. Together, they are also Bat Fangs! The band releases its debut self-titled album on Friday, Feb. 2 via Don Giovanni Records. One week later, Sasha Lord presents Bat Fangs playing that new album at Comet Ping Pong on Friday, Feb. 9!
Bat Fangs recorded their first album in 2017, putting down nine songs with Mike Montgomery at Candyland Studio in Dayton, Kentucky. Hailed as “acid-soaked hard rock,” the songs deliver a powerful thump of garage rock with Betsy on vocals and guitar and Laura on drums.
Watch the official music video for “Rock the Reaper” by Bat Fangs on YouTube:
Bat Fangs released “Wolfbite,” the first single from the upcoming album, in November. Stereogum called it “a catchy, propulsive monster-sneer of a song.”
Listen to Bat Fangs’ self-titled debut album on Bandcamp after Feb. 2 (or listen to the first single “Wolfbite” prior to Feb. 2):
