stream Bat Fangs’ “Boys of Summer” & a playlist they made with Superchunk
Bat Fangs is the new project of singer/guitarist Betsy Wright (Ex Hex, Chain and the Gang) and drummer Laura King (Flesh Wounds, Speed Stick), and they’re releasing their self-titled debut album this Friday (2/2) via Don Giovanni. Ahead of its release, we’re premiering the track “Boys of Summer,” which is not a Don Henley cover but which is an awesome glammy rocker that’s cut from a similar cloth as Ex Hex. Listen below.
Some of Bat Fangs’ upcoming tour dates are with Superchunk, and ahead of those shows, Bat Fangs and Superchunk curated a Spotify playlist together. It featuers some Bat Fangs songs, in addition to music by Judas Priest, Poison, Sparks, Roky Erickson, La Luz, Neighborhood Brats, Missy Elliott, Run DMC. Kendrick Lamar, Dead Moon, X-Ray Spex, The Breeders, ESG, Beastie Boys, Screaming Females, and more. Needless to say, it’s a great playlist. Listen below.
Bat Fangs aren’t on Superchunk’s NYC shows, but they play their own show here on February 16 at Union Pool with Beech Creeps and Simon Doom (tickets). All dates are listed below.
