Batillus is just an astounding band. I really can’t do them much justice in the way of fancy praise (step on over to Brooklyn Vegan and check out their Metal section, they have by far the best Batillus updates I’ve come across, just don’t leave me for them), I can just say they’re fucking ugly, and it’s awesome. They currently have their new album, “Furnace,” up on their Band Camp (which I actually just posted in the previous entry prior to getting this email) for a pay-what-you-wish price, so stop by Here and pick it up.(don’t be a bastard((that’s me speaking, not the band)))(Sunn O))).
Anyway, here’s this….
That’s from the Band Camp page
Here’s a handful of tour dates in the US coming up in July, the first of which is on my birthday, a fine day for all.
