Kning Disk feel very proud and honoured to announce that on June 1st, Kning Disk release the new CD by legendary New Zealand group THE BATS in an exclusive Scandinavia only release, with new and handmade cover in an edition of 499 copies.

Titled "The Guilty Office", it is yet another masterpiece of original "Bats-sound"; proud and vibrant sunshine-drenched pop, deeply rooted in the nature and universe at the same time... Strong songs, beautiful lyrics, excellent musicianship, eternal joy.

The Bats, who started out in Christchurch in 1982, have released numerous records on labels like Flying Nun, and are considered to be one of the most influental bands to come out of the New Zealand scene.

The influence and magic continues as strong as ever, and the Bats have done it again; The Guilty Office is a true classic!
