Bat For Lashes Back With 'The Haunted Man' This October
Bat For Lashes' Natasha Kahn will release The Haunted Man on October 15 in the UK on Parlophone/EMI and likely the day after Stateside. The record, Bat For Lashes' third release, is a followup to 2009's Two Suns.
The enigmatic Kahn has also announced a fall UK tour that will support the album's release; no North American dates announced yet. Tickets for the UK tour go on sale this Friday, June 15, at 9 a.m. Bat For Lashes will also be hitting the EU/UK festival circuit hard this summer; a full lineup is here.
Bat For Lashes will be playing an intimate gig in Cambridge, UK tonight. Coincidentally, frequent Bat For Lashes touring guitarist Charlotte Hatherley, ex of Ash, recently launched a new band called Sylver Tongue and also has a gig this evening in London, opening for Bright Light Bright Light.
Below is video footage of a new Bat For Lashes song, below, that was played in Sydney last year.
