Fan Death, the band, just put out a video for an extended mix of “Reunited” from their upcoming A Coin For The Well EP. Fan death, the Wikipedia article, describes one of the more entertaining urban legends I’ve ever been aware of, which I hope catches on stateside.

Hailing from Bordeaux, France, punk rock tandem Caroline Martial and Orion Bouvier make up the tantalizing Kap Bambino. Drawing upon the likes of Suicide and Nirvana, Kap Bambino fleshes out unruly noise rock for the masses. Revel in Kap Bambino’s “Batcaves”, which Martial helpfully describes as “a call to all the bats out there”, as well as a list of their North American tour dates. The band’s new EP, Batcaves, is set for a digital release on November 16th, and their full length album Blacklist is due 2010.
