BATAVIA - Debut Full-Length Out Now And Available For Streaming In Full

Florida (USA) based gothic/industrial duo, Batavia has just released their first proper full-length album, Mythos via Tigersqwak Records. In the tradition of their previous entries, Mythos is a highly conceptual release. Each song is an exploration of legend and folklore, from both home and abroad. Mythos explores tales both known and obscure, new and old; from The Bell Witch and Red Headed Hitchhiker to the infamous Buzzer radio signal of Moscow.

Recording of Mythos began shortly after their previous EP, Quite Mean Spirited, with musical ambitions set higher than anything they had released previously. The result is a collage of influences, ranging from post-punk, goth rock, noise rock, industrial and EBM, with no song standing firmly in one singular genre. While each song was written to reflect the mood of the subject matter, Mythos is a release that was written as a singular listening journey into the stories that have captured our imagination for generations.

Joining Batavia on this release is label mate Beta Virus, who provided vocals on "UVB-76". JD Tucker lent his mixing talents to "Azafrán", with James Scott of Populist Recording and Eric Oehler of Submersible Studios providing mastering for the release. The band has also included three retro-flavoured remixes of the songs "Mercy's Burning Heart", "Her Vacant Chair", and "Anthemoessa". The entire album is available for streaming and you can hear it below, as well you can watch the lyric video for the hit single "Azafrán". Link
