Currently in the studio hammering out their third album, Bat Wings for Lab Rats are preparing to release their most dexterous, defiant sound to date. The band anticipates this album will break down barriers and usher in untold opportunities by once again capturing their live performance energy on a studio crafted album.
"It's a challenge to translate the frenzy of our show into a studio recording, but I feel like the time is ripe to bring it to the people and show the world what our loyal fan base is already well aware of", says front man Brandon "Lowki" Atencio.
Bat Wings for Lab Rats' style emphasizes catchy songwriting, thoughtful lyrics, and a penchant for the unpredictable. "Guitarist Rob Nakai and bassist Phillip Ortiz have perfected a sort of stoner-surf rhythmic drive that keeps the music rolling like Bay Area breakers lazily lapping the shore." (Andrew Beale, Daily Lobo)
Incorporating elements of hip hop, punk rock, and psychedelic rock into their signature style, Bat Wings for Lab Rats released their debut album, "Punk-Hop-A-Delic" in July 2010. This album garnered many successful headlining shows as well as gigs opening up for national acts such as Kottonmouth Kings and The Revolting Cocks.
With the release of the EP "Make It Red," (June 2011) the band was invited to play the Ernie Ball Stage on the Vans Warped Tour. Later that fall, they became the first unsigned band in history to perform live at the Playboy Club in Las Vegas (Sept. 2011).
With both a strong local following and solid national response, Bat Wings For Lab Rats continuously produce new music, videos, blogs, and Podcasts, keeping in touch with their friends and fans. With all of their endeavors, the band keeps a powerful momentum that drives creativity, endorses positive energy, and promotes success both on and off the stage.
Bat Wings for Lab Rats' third album is projected to drop in the summer of 2012. "We have the ability to soothe beasts and incite riots. It's all about the alchemy of uniting opposites, forging a weapon to tear down vulgar machinery and build up the power of the heart." (Brandon "Lowki" Atencio)
