FOR THE BATS VOLUME III - Bat Conservation Fundraiser Compilation Released

Halloween is almost upon us, and meanwhile, musicians from all corners of the globe's gothic, post-punk, deathrock and darkwave communities have once again rallied together to support Bat rescue, rehabilitation and conservation. Leading names like The Eden House, The Danse Society, Red Sun Revival and Bloody Dead And Sexy (feat. Gitane Demone) spearhead a cast of twenty-five bands and recording artists on For The Bats Volume III; the final installment of the successful fundraising compilation series, with all proceeds paid directly to the Bat Conservation Trust. Since the movement's inception, bats have been an enduring symbol of the gothic and deathrock music scenes. They adorn landmark début record sleeves from Bauhaus and Christian Death, while London's Batcave nightclub in Soho became a thriving hub of the early eighties subculture. But they are also more than just a symbol, says For The Bats curator Candy Durant: "They are beautiful animals, often misunderstood to be vermin or pests when in reality, they are very important to the balance of the Earth's delicate ecology. They spread seeds for reforestation and help to control insect populations that would otherwise overrun crops in their billions."
Beside the four before mentioned bands the compilation features acts such as Disjecta Membra, Ultraviolence, Dystopian Society, Sounds Like Winter, The Death Of Analog, Dogs In Trees, Legion Within, Thalie Némésis, Soulscape and many more. For The Bats Volume III was just released and is available from Bandcamp. Link
