Forged in Westchester, NY, BATES is an alt-rock powerhouse that takes influence from, blues, grunge, funk, folk, and metal. After spending years perfecting their craft and some natural chemistry, BATES has created a unique but familiar rock sound that is filled with character. The funky basslines of Jason Dowd perfectly fit into the powerful rhythms of Tyler Katz (drums) and Patrick Devir (guitar), giving the spotlight to Craig Browning's signature effect-driven leads and the soulful yet rebellious vocals of Billy Miscione.
Compared to the works of KALEO, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, and Muse, BATES' debut self-titled album delivers stories of life all while exploring different colors and genres. Whether influenced by funk, country, or metal, the band has created a nostalgic trademark rock sound that is just simply BATES.
Featured in 107.1 The Peak's 9:37 local and WHUD's artist spotlight BATES has become a driving force in the northeast playing at notable venues such as The Knitting Factory (NYC), Toads Place (CT), and Bourre (NJ). With a second album in the works, Billy and the rest of BATES aim to deliver an experience like never before.
