|EvilZ Records / Exor's Magicvision Entertainments|
Hailing from a mythical land called EvilZgate, which may or may not actually be in London somewhere, Jokerbats are a two-piece band comprised of vocalist/guitarist Byron and vocalist/bassist Trix. Along with help from Blond Wolf (lead guitar), Jester (drums/percussion) and Exor (Theatrical voices and keyboards), all of whom help out in studio and/or live situationist, the pair have created a band that is as capable visually as they are musically! Self-described as such: "We're a rock and hard rock band with a penchant for gothic horror and more. With a pinch of parody and a smack of glam, we are, when all is said and done, overall, quite a theatrical thing" the band, who list their influences as being Rob Zombie, Lordi Alice Cooper, Wednesday 13, Bauhaus, Motörhead, The Cure, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Ozbourne, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Murderdolls, Queenadreena, The Stranglers, The Cramps and Metallica has also been described by some sources as a hard rock/heavy metal version of The White Stripes! Truthfully Jokerbats, who will be officially releasing this single on the 24th of February, are all of the above while unlike anything you could imagine! A long-talked about and long-delayed EP was in the works although it now appears as if that will be expanded into a full-fledged album. One can only hope for as much seeing as "Vampire", which can be previewed below thanks to it's official video, is captivating even with it's (somewhat) camp overcoat! Be sure to check this pair out for yourself (and trust me you'll want to friends if for no other reason then the lovely Trix!) and "Like" their Facebook page below so you can be kept up to date on the comings and goings of this EvilZgate-based band!
