Free All the Monsters is the eighth full-length album by New Zealand band The Bats, released in 2011. In December 2010, The Bats recorded tracks for the album at a backpackers and stables at the old Seacliff Asylum, between Oamaru and Dunedin. The album was recorded and co-produced by Dale Cotton, who had produced Robert Scott's recent solo album. The album was released on 15 October 2011
Free All the Monsters simply consists of a set of plaintive songs that draw on all the stylistic cues this band has worked hard to establish in the past (a Byrds-ian jangle, a touch of Velvets-style dissonance) and tightens everything up a touch. Parallel feelings of warmth and longing criss-cross through much of the material, with songs like "Long Halls" and "On the Bank" bedded down in Kean's warmly looping basslines, while the vocals cut through the glow with a whole heap of self scrutiny.
Free All The Monsters, the bands eighth album shows them in top form. Recorded at Seacliff, a former asylum in the grand Victorian style just outside of Dunedin, New Zealand, and masterfully produced by Dale Cotton (HDU, Dimmer), it captures some of their strongest songs to date. From the melodic and insanely catchy title track through to the psychedelic thrum of second single, In The Subway, the lo-fi folk of Simpletons and the soaring instrumental passages – Free All the Monsters is filled with powerful and haunting guitars, delicate vocals and rhythms that swerve and stomp throughout . The Bats, Free All the Monsters: An utterly charming set of songs from these Flying Nun stalwarts. Stuff, Simon Sweetman, NZ. It’s The Bats strongest effort in year. his is a classic album from the band.

A new Bats album is like Christmas. Which is to say it’s infrequent, and like the conversations with family members you catch up with for the first time in 12 months, it plays out in a certain familiar, ritualized way, though not without genuine affection. Like family, The Bats are reliable, emerging from the Batcave every few years with a workmanlike long-player for fans of New Zealand’s late-1980s rock scene and Pavement obsessives who heard Stephen Malkmus was pretty hot on the band. The brief, searing solos that leap out of the choruses during Free all the Monsters follow the melody in that ect sort of way that The Beatles mastered with a bit more skill. But, unlike Daddy’s Highway and a couple of their other early albums, Free All the Monsters is 12 tracks long, a much more reasonable length and way better suited to their Byrdsian songs.
His Bat Out of Hell trilogy of albums-Bat Out of Hell, Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, and Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose-have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. More than 40 years after its release, Bat Out of Hell still sells an estimated 200,000 copies annually and stayed on the charts After the commercial success of Bat Out of Hell and Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell and earning a Grammy Award for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance for the song "I'd Do Anything for Love&q. In 1976, Meat Loaf recorded lead vocals for Ted Nugent's album Free-for-All when regular Nugent lead vocalist Derek St. Holmes temporarily quit the band. Meat Loaf sang lead on five of the album's nine tracks.
The Bats evolved from the very active scene in Hamburg- Bramfeld in the early Sixties. Towards the end of the Fifties Skiffle groups turned into the first amateur Rock 'n' Roll bands all over Hamburg. An Indonesian, Peter Bosch, alias Pit Kooy, came to Hamburg in 1947 when he still was a young boy. He grew up in Bramfeld where he played bass for Long Erwin And His House Rockers after his first tries with the four string 'Peter Kraus Guitar'. The bandleader Erich 'Long Erwin' Goetze came via Peter And The Outsiders as drummer for the Tonics
