New Zealand indie rock vets The Bats will release their new album, The Deep Set, will be out via Flyring Nun on January 27 2017 in NZ and Australia, and February 3 (pre-order). The band's signature sound, led by Robert Scott's strum and Kaye Woodward's snaky leads, remains intact and winning as ever. You can stream two songs of the LP -- "Antlers" and "No Trace" (which premieres in this post) -- below.

The Bats have a couple Australian shows lined up for January. Those dates, along with album art and tracklist, are listed below.
