Richter Collective presents
‘THE SLEEP OF REASON’
With very special guests
NO SPILL BLOOD & TURNING DOWN SEX
BATS are a group of mammals comprised of various molecules based mainly on carbon.
They began their musical quest in 2006, releasing an EP ‘Cruel Sea Scientist’ in 2007 and their debut LP ‘Red In Tooth & Claw’, produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, in 2009. Sporting their own brand of science inspired post-hardcore and danceable post-punk, they’ve played support to such big-name acts as The Locust, These Arms Are Snakes, Gang Gang Dance, Sebadoh and Chrome Hoof. With the forthcoming release of their sophmore album ‘The Sleep of Reason’ , produced by These Arms Are Snakes’ Chris Common, BATS seek to continue their ongoing quest of promoting science and reason while combating superstition and pseudoscience with blastable riffage and erudite hookage. This will be the final release on Irish label The Richter Collective, set for release on October 20th of this year.
No Spill Blood :
Ireland’s vitalic rock scene has once again created musical alchemy in the form of No Spill Blood. A band formed from the much-loved, respected and established bands Adebisi Shank, Hands Up Who Wants To Die , Elk and Magic Pockets just after releasing their debut EP Street Meat internationally through Sargent House.
Matt Hedigan (Hands Up Who Wants To Die, Elk) on bass and vocals, Ruadhan O’Meara (Magic Pockets) on synths and Lar Kaye (Adebisi Shank) on drums took time out of their other bands to jam in Dublin in early 2011 after Matt had moved to the city from Cork. The trio’s shared musical influences, the agile post-rock electronic punch of Trans Am, the playful noise of Devo and the low-down post-punk of the Melvins can be heard melded into No Spill Blood’s spirited hurtling rhythms.
Turning Down Sex :
Turning Down Sex is an instrumental band from Dublin/Wicklow, playing a groovy mix of effect-laden math, loud noise and intricate hardcore.
They released a split EP on Quarter Inch Collective with Ginola
