Album Notes
After 10 full-length studio albums and two decades of being called a "Gothic" musician, Aurelio Voltaire (formerly just "Voltaire") finally makes a Gothic album! 
"In truth, it's a tour of all of the kinds of music I loved growing up. There are songs on this album that are Gothrock, Deathrock, New Wave, New Romantic, Darkwave and Dark folk. It's the album I've always wanted to make. Some of the songs were written as far back as 1984 when I was 17 years-old!" says, Aurelio Voltaire.
Voltaire is not alone on this epic journey. He is joined by some incredible talent on Raised by Bats including:
Brian Viglione on Drums 
      from The Dresden Dolls/The Violent Femmes
Ray Toro on Guitars 
      from My Chemical Romance
Knox Chandler on Guitars  
      from Siouxsie and the Banshees/Depeche Mode
Craig Adams on Bass
      from The Mission UK/Sisters of Mercy/The Alarm/The Cult
Melora Creager on Cello 
      from Rasputina
Frank Morin on Guitars 
      from World Inferno Friendship Society
Emilio Zef China on Bass and violin
      from Peter Murphy's band,
I, Synthesist on synthesizers and

Oh My Goth is right!
Have been looking forward to this album so much and it has not disappointed. It's gothier and rockier than what we are used to from Voltaire but it still has the same honesty and humour. And if you've not looked at the musical heritage of the artists playing with Voltaire on this album you will be blown away. The fact that so many amazing goth rockers have lined up to play on this album is a testiment to Voltaire's regard in goth rock circles. And the results are amazing. Bloody brilliant & so much fun!
