Okay, can we all just stop for a second and recognize that “The Whiskey Bats” is legit the coolest band name ever? Cool, glad we could all agree on that. So, that all being said, The Whiskey Bats gave us a copy of their latest album, Creepy Movie Marathon, (again, killer fucking name) and I am definitely a fan. They’ve got this almost Flogging Molly vibe, but with an 80’s hard rock twist. Oh, but it gets better. It shouldn’t be a surprise with an album named Creepy Movie Marathon, but they’ve got some great classic horror movie references in their songs such as, “They’re coming to get you Barbara” which I so appreciate. I am a huge horror movie fan and it was my dad who got me into scary movies by letting me watch Night of the Living Dead when I was three years old, so The Whiskey Bats hit me right in the heart with that one.
Creepy Movie Marathon dropped on September 5th, so it’s available for you guys now. The copy they gave us now lives in my car (sorry not sorry Alonna, you’re not getting it back). Be sure the check it out for yourselves and give the band some love! I’m really hoping that we see more work like this out of The Whiskey Bats soon, keep at it guys, you’re doing great!
