SPB exclusive: Batboy/Sarchasm split EP

Batboy/Sarchasm - split EP

Scene Point Blank is excited to feature a stream of the new split EP from Bat Boy and Sarchasm, out this Friday (June 8) on Asian Man Records. The new EP pairs two songs by each artist.

The Weekly World News may no longer be a checkout lane staple, but its influence reaches wide. Bat Boy features former members of Spraynard and Sundials, calling Philadelphia and Richmond home and playing punk with a quirky power pop heart.

Sarchasm are a poppy punk band from Berkeley, CA in the vein of “Tilt meets Raoul meets Pansy Division meets early Green Day” with a lo-fi, high energy sensibility.

Enjoy the record below.
