Richmond, Virginia metal-punk trio Bat has been carving their path of blood-spattered horror since emerging from the underground a decade ago. Founded by Municipal Waste guitarists Ryan Waste & Nick Poulos, their second full-length album, Under The Crooked Claw, is set to release on May 17th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Pre-order Under The Crooked Claw here.

Today, Bat unveils the infectious second track from the album, titled "Streetbanger". The music video, directed by Ryan Waste with cinematography by Jeff Howlett, accompanies the release.

Waste shared the following:

'Streetbanger' was a title and lyrical concept I've had since the BAT demo days, so it's been marinating for some time. It's one of the tunes we reworked and played live for a while so it's already been a staple in the setlist. For the video, we walked the streets of our hometown, Richmond, VA and shot the performance in our actual rehearsal space. I was able to direct the video clip on my own terms with the help of our close friend Jeff Howlett. Jeff is an amazing photographer who shot the band photos for our upcoming album Under the Crooked Claw as well as a documentary filmmaker known for A Band Called Death (2012). 'Streetbanger' embodies our raw, no-frills attitude in BAT and what you see is what you get.




This summer, Bat will embark on a series of 5 headlining dates across the US, followed by joining the first half of the 'Lifeless Birth Tour 2024' alongside headliners Necrot
