Release the Bats Ends after 10 Years

After 10 years as a record label, Release the Bats is calling it quits.  RTB had released many great albums from many great artists, such as Glass Candy, Black Eyes, Woods, Heavy Winged, Dolphins into the Future, and many more.

According to label founder Matthias Andersson, “The reasons for the folding are many, but I’ve lost my inspiration completely the last year or so. The label has been a very big part of my life for the last 10 years, and at this point there are so many other things I’d rather do in life.”

Expenses, a lack of purchases, and the inundating plethora of record labels are mentioned factors for Andersson’s closing, but he adds that regardless of circumstances, he wouldn’t have kept doing the label forever.

The label will release two final records, by Sverige and Timeless Reality.
