"White Bat is the purest, most passionate, and the most united He is Legend has been since we wrote It Hates You. I think this album has something for every fan of each chapter in our history," says singer Schuylar Croom about the album, which is He Is Legend's sixth full length overall and second for Spinefarm. The quartet — the aforementioned Croom, Adam Tanbouz (lead guitar), Matty Williams (bass), and Jesse Shelley (drums) — is bolstered by a cult fan base that includes members of your favorite band. For White Bat, the band diligently worked across the country. Shelley recorded drums in Atlanta at Glow in the Dark Studios with Matt Goldman. Guitars and bass would be tracked at Warriorsound with Al Jacobs. Meanwhile, Croom ventured out West to reteam with Mitch Marlow for vocals in Los Angeles. Inspired by Michelle McNamara's true crime classic 'I'll Be Gone In The Dark', Croom wandered around the shadiest and most shadowy corners of the city of angels. Getting into a menacing mindset for the concept, he visited the grave of Walt Disney, canvased mausoleums, went to the Museum of Death, and "sat in crazy seedy little bars, wrote, and got into this headspace—like preparing for an acting role." Ultimately, White Bat "has a moodiness and heaviness we haven't ventured into in a while," according to Croom. "It's conceptual. More than the content and concept, the music is representative of what we are now." White Bat track listing: 01. White Bat 02. Burn All Your Rock Records 03. When the Woods Were Young 04. Eye Teeth 05. Talking Stalker 06. Bent 07. Resister, Resist Her 08. Uncanny Valley 09. The Interloper 10. Skin So Soft 11. Boogiewoman

Why the bat gotta be white? Bats is black, and now He is Legend is cultural appropriatin'. Racists.

not asked for. probably the most irrelevant band covered here after clutch of course

anonymous 4/26/2019 7:49:42 AM

Clutch is irrelevant to this site on the basis that this site only covers shit music, and Clutch is an actual talented and quality band.

Californians live in their cars and they shit on the sidewalk.

Silicon valley is one of the dirtiest places in US. people on this site from there live in rented walk in closets, gender neutral bathrooms or their vehicles as stated. sanctuary cities protect illegals and sh*t covered sidewalks.

Hay guys! What did you think of Tony stark dying? Like OH MY GAWD! right?!

anonymous 4/27/2019 10:31:23 AM

These saps tried to sign with me "back in the day". With me? I came from nothing, and worked my way to the top. How many music label owners do you know? How many can claim they owned the #1 independent record label in the world? Well I don't own a "music" label, I own a lifestyle company. I decided not to sign these guys because during a meeting, I gazed at the drummer's crotch and was disappointed to see only a small bulge. Satisfaction is still the best selling Hatebreed album of all time.

Everyone is Los Angeles has the measles because they've been making out with all the illegal immigrants they love so much.

Every front man wants to be a movie star, and every movie star wants to be a front man.
