Fan-filmed video footage of the legendary Los Angeles-based metal band BITCH led by frontwoman Betsy Bitch performing the song "Skull Crusher" at the Keep It True XIV festival, which was held April 29-30, 2011 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Knigshofen, Germany, can be viewed below. Fellow Los Angeles metal act ANGER AS ART served as Betsy's backing band for BITCH's appearance at the event.
"Planning this tour has been bittersweet," Betsy said in February 2011 statement. "We lost our drummer/founding member Robby Settles to leukemia last year, and it took the wind out of our sails. We already had Keep It True booked before Robby passed, and other members were less than enthused about going over to play the show. When I spoke with our bassist Steve Gaines, he had just played Keep It True with ABATTOIR in 2009, and was adamant that it was an opportunity that shouldn't be missed. Steve offered that if we couldn't find anyone to fill in that ANGER AS ART would be honored to perform as BITCH. The rest is history."
Metal Blade Records is planning on a reissue of BITCH's classic LP "Be My Slave" sometime in 2011.
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".
