German heavy metal punk rock duo, Delta Bats, has inked a worldwide deal with Drakkar Entertainment, who is proud to release the band’s upcoming debut album, entitled “Here Come the Bats”, on July 29th, 2022!
Toby Fuhrmann and Don Canone have been in this business long enough to know that they will not reinvent rock‘n’roll. They were born too late for that. But at least they were born in time to save it. After years as a well-oiled rhythm section in various bands, the two brothers in spirit have made their debut as a duo, the Delta Bats, and have reduced themselves to what they do best: No-holds-barred low blows of drum and bass, mangy vocals and raw riffs that don’t even try to sound virtuosic.
“We are delighted to add another great act to our artist roster with Delta Bats”, says Maximilian Föse, Head Of Drakkar Entertainment. “After listening to the first demos, it was immediately clear to us that these guys have everything it takes to shake up the music landscape with their snotty sound”.
“Drakkar Entertainment rocks and the Delta Bats also rock – so that’s a match right there!”, the band adds. “We’re over the moon to have such an awesome and powerful team by our side. Let’s go! Here come the Bats”!
Delta Bats are having fun, but are bitterly serious. While Don has drifted straight from an East German contrabass forge into metal, Toby has beaten his way up from a boys’ choir via American marching bands to a drummer whose punch would make a Texan blacksmith pale in comparison. The two unmistakably pay homage to their gods – Motörhead, ZZ Top, Ramones, Judas Priest – but without losing sight of the danceability of a Samantha Fox. Wherever the Bats appear, it’s a party. People sweat and drink Coors light from cans. Shells fall from bodies that would have been better left covered. But that doesn’t mean shit. Two friends for one hallelujah. “Here Come The Bats”!
Get yourself in the mood for the Delta Bats and join the party, as the charismatic duo has just released a hilarious, excellent music video for their first album single “Delta Bat”! Watch the video below.
“Here Come the Bats” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jan Oberg (Earth Ship, Grin) at the Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin, Germany. Slated for a release on July 29th, 2022, through Drakkar Entertainment, the album pre-sale has just started here.
