About Chicano Batman
Chicano Batman source their high-spirited alternative Latin synthesis from Tropicália, West Coast psychedelia, and late-'60s/early-'70s soul, among other styles. Eduardo Arenas (bass, vocals), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, organ, guitar), and Gabriel Villa (drums, percussion) made their recorded debut in 2009 with a self-released, self-titled album. After Carlos Arévalo (guitar) was added to the lineup, Chicano Batman issued the four-track Joven Navegante EP in 2012. The Los Angeles-based band released only handful of additional singles in the next few years, but they greatly expanded their fan base in 2015 with dates opening for Alabama Shakes and Jack White, as well as a performance at Coachella. In 2016, Chicano Batman signed to the ATO label, where they released Freedom Is Free, their third album, in early 2017.
Chicano Batman released the collaborative single "Hablame/Corazon de Rocka" with Caloncho in 2019, the same year they put out the Black Lipstick EP. The full-length Invisible People followed in 2020. ~ Andy Kellman
