Absolutely stunning debut full of pyroclastic smashers, this volcano will
unleash rivers of lava melting your brain! BATTLEBEATS is the new
garage-punk sensation and finally available on vinyl to enter your hit
list! To cite Faster & Louder: "The sound here is raw and ferocious,
with songs alternating between the wild, blown-out rock and roll of
tracks like "You're My Wild One" and "I Wanna Break Away" and the
snot-drenched rage of "She's So Overrated". This is exactly the way
lo-fi garage punk ought to be: cheaply-recorded, brimming with untamed
energy, and stripped to the essence of three-chord simplicity. Songs for
the most part clock in under two minutes - and even at seventeen tracks, the album leaves me wanting
more. Crank up the volume and make like the '90s never ended!" Andresa
plays everything on his own - working with a guitar plugged into an
overdrive pedal and a 15-watt amp, a floor tom-snare drum set,
tambourine, and no bass. The band story sounds like a budget rock
fairytale, young fanboy Andresa touring with prior band Japan, going to a
bar after a show to meet his idol Fifi of TEENGENERATE! Showing
drawings and pledge for song lyrics, Fifi is overwhelmed and happy to
share the same instincts for rocknroll and power pop. Like a long lost
ninja son, he suggest the band name for his new indonesian friend and
BATTLEBEATS are born. He got his first 45 "You Stabbed Me In The Back"
out on Post Party Deppression in the US in late 2020. You may have heard
the chords before, but this Rock and Roll rawness is turning you inside
out and you feel the TEENTRASH kid in you just going wild. It´s like
having a beer and wondering why it tastes so good as you never had a
beer before! Next time your uncle habitually grabs his stained
PERSUADERS records, you can easily send him off the rocking chair.
"Search & Destroy" got additional KILLER analog vinyl mastering by
A-HULEHULE and BARRATO in Berlin and you won´t believe the outcome.
