In August 2011, BITCH‘s classic album “Be My Slave”, which could be seen in the hands of Tipper Gore as she campaigned to save our children throughout the ’80s, was repackaged with the “Damnation Alley” EP and a live DVD. The DVD includes BITCH‘s performance at the Keep It True festival in Germany in April 2011, along with a myriad of early ’80s live performance and cable access footage.
BITCH was the first band ever to be signed by Metal Blade Records, ultimately releasing five albums in the 1980s — “Damnation Alley”, “Be My Slave”, “The Bitch Is Back”, “Betsy”, and “A Rose By Any Other Name”.
