Bats is the name of more than one artist.

1) Progressive / Post punk / Math Rock band from Ireland.
2) alias of Mike Martocci
3) South African garage rock band with Pete Clifford.
4) a variation on The Bats

1) 2007–present

BATS are a Progressive / Post punk / Math Rock band based in Dublin Ireland. (Not to be confused with New Zealand’s The Bats.)

Formed in the early part of the Pliocene age, BATS (featuring ex-members of Martha Washington) have spent millions of years developing their sound from a series of intermittent bleeps to the sexy sonic bullets they create today. 4 out of 5 BATS hail from Ireland’s alpha-smoke- Dublin, while the other crawled his way on bloody knuckles out of the haunted town of Carbury, Kildare in the mid 1600’s.December 2007 sees the release on independent label Armed Ambitions of their debut EP entitled ’Cruel Sea Scientist’ and the frightening of some smaller children. Strong supporters of the Earth to space elevator and strong opposers of the plan to strip-mine the moon for Helium 3, BATS strive to disperse their audio seed into the ears and minds of as many receptive humans as possible. They do so with valiant gusto and in the face of a limited gene pool. A product of Natural Selection, a constant source of erection. BATS.

From early 2007, BATS have been playing shows around Ireland and have since played support to such acts as These Arms Are Snakes, Gang Gang Dance, Down I Go, The Locust, Liars and Chrome Hoof.

    Band that makes you want to sing, dance and research the lyrics on Wikipedia all at the same time. Awesome band!

    I keep singing 'Oh the arrogance' over and over to myself . Not great when you work with the public daily. Damn you BATS, what have you done to me!?

    @theatmosphere No such problem here! Isn't too surprising though since Richter Collective are calling it quits from what I've heard...
