BAT, the unholy supergroup featuring Municipal Waste guitarist Ryan Waste on bass/vocals, former DRI drummer Felix Griffin and Volture guitarist Nick Poulos, are very pleased to announce a Summer run of live infiltrations. Set to commence on August 22nd in Brooklyn, New York, the tour will trample its way through ten cities, making its final descent on Richmond, Virginia on September 5th. The band will be joined by Toronto ear bleeders, Chainbreaker, on select dates.
Comments Ryan Waste of the upcoming live debauchery: "After an insane response from our first gigs with Satan and the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze Fest, we have been itching to hit the road for real. All it took was an invite to the Canadian cult festival, Wings Of Metal in Montreal, to get BAT back in flight. Since we were heading up to the Great White North we decided to bring along our brothers in nastiness, Chainbreaker. Our styles of primitive speed metal go hand-in-hand and we're all old friends so it will surely be a blast. These will also be the first shows for BAT in almost all of the cities from New York to Chicago so they must not be missed."
Adds Chainbreaker's Al Positions: "Greasy sewer sucking street metallers, Chainbreaker, are set to lose the confines of our homeland like a bad bowel accident and leak down all over the United States on a tour with our lewd comrades in perversion, BAT. We promise to disgust and stimulate all who are willing to bend over and get plowed by our smelly, slippery, sexual sound. Defiant of the trends, iconoclast to your weak moral code, Chainbreaker stands on guard to offend all norms and unsuspecting strays while fulfilling the true underground's every lethal desire."

The Virginia/Texas punk metal marauders in BAT will be touring in support of their Primitive Age EP. Invoking the spirits of Venom, Hellhammer, Motörhead 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."
