The Bat Bites (NL)
They might be considered the new kids on the block, but the 3 boys and one girl have been kicking it for awhile now. One of them is a steady Apers band member, one of them a steady Apers stand-in and one of them dates Ox Accelerator! Oh yeah, one of them writes poetry and one of them drives touring cars around…
Anyway, they play super tight, super catchy poppunk, with cool vocals and hooks. Their ‘Creatures Of The Night’ EP was a massive hit in Japan and Lekkerkerk.
