Seminal punk icons Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls) and Cheetah Chrome (Rocket From The Tombs/Dead Boys) today announced their new band "Batusis", followed by a 4-track EP on Smog Veil records and a nationwide UK Tour in May 2010.
Following their March 18th concert debut at the prestigious SXSW festival, Batusis, whose name is derived from when Adam West danced a version of the watusi on the popular Batman TV series, will release their self-titled debut EP on collectable 7” inch multi-colored vinyl and digital download on May 4th. The EP also features Enzo Penizzotto (bass) and Thommy Price (drums) of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
To coincide with 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). Tickets: 0844 477 2000 / www.ticketweb.co.uk
“We’ve got the name,” Sylvain muses, “Now we just need the shtick.”
