chicano Batman Campaign



The Agency Group & Red Light Management approached The Syndicate to use Chicano Batman’s appearance at Coachella 2015 as a springboard to build the band’s profile and promote tour dates throughout the year. 


We secured regional press during the dates with Alabama Shakes to build a national story and released the new single, “Black Lipstick” – which we debuted at Entertainment Weekly.

The campaign culminated with Chicano Batman signing with with ATO Records to release their next album, Freedom Is Free, and The Syndicate running the PR campaign leading to the March 2017 date and still going today.
