Batusis, whose name is derived from when Adam West danced a version of the watusi on the popular Batman TV series, release their self-titled debut EP on collectable 7” inch multi-colored vinyl and digital download on Smog Veil records throughout North America and Europe on May 4th.
“I’ve known Sylvain since 1975,” says Cheetah. “The Dolls were a huge influence on me.” Sylvain adds “We’re just nuts about rock ‘n’ roll. We knew that’s what we’d come up with, no matter what!” The EP also features Enzo Penizzotto (bass) and Thommy Price (drums) of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
To coincide with the record release, Sylvain and Chrome will undertake a nationwide “Batusis” UK tour that starts at the Glasgow ABC2 (May 3), followed by dates at Sheffield O2 Academy2 (May 4), Liverpool O2 Academy2 (May 5), London Islington Academy (May 7), Hatfield Forum - Attic Room (May 8), Oxford Academy2 (May 10), Southampton Joiners (May 11), Bristol O2 Academy2 (May 12) and Birmingham O2 Academy2 (May 13).

What can I add ?

It's a **** thing a dit…

Got my tickets for Glasgow. The ABC2 is a pretty small club sized venue. So it's going to be a blast.
Iggy and the Stooges on the Sunday in London. Batusis on the Monday in Glasgow. This is my rock and roll weekend of a lifetime.

Anonyme a dit…

Hey, this sounds really promising! I bet it will rock harder than the Dolls albums. Thanks for the heads up!


For sure that's a real rock'n'roll weekend ... just tell us how it was ...

It's a **** thing a dit…
