Bat Fangs is the newish duo of singer/guitarist Betsy Wright (Ex Hex, Chain and the Gang) and drummer Laura King (Flesh Wounds, Speed Stick). If you like any of their other groups, chances are you'll dig the glammy, riffy hard rock sound they make together. Their self-titled debut album will be out February 2 via Don Giovanni and you can listen to "Wolfbite," and check out a Bat Fang comic made by Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster, below.

The band will celebrate the album's release with shows in Laura's hometown (NC) and Betsy's (DC) in February before joining Superchunk on tour. Those dates do not include the two sold-out NYC shows (Swearin' open), unfortunately, and are mostly West Coast. Bat Fangs are playing NYC around that time at Union Pool on February 16 with Beech Creeps and Simon Doom (tickets). All dates, which also include appearances at the Savannah Stopover and SXSW, are listed below.
