Description[edit | edit source]


In 2017, Bat Out of Hell (musical) ran in Manchester, London and Toronto with the original cast. This album contains the cast performing all of the songs from the production through Manchester and London, even if they were later removed as the show was altered during each run.

The cast recorded much of the album during the Manchester run and the album was first teased for release before the London run began. The album was then delayed, and the structure of the show was altered, so the cast went back into the studio to record again (notably - to record the full version of Out of the Frying Pan as this had been progressively extended). This further delayed the album, so the release was pushed back once again and was not before the end of the London run. However, the album was complete at this time.

On the 8th September 2017, the album showed up on Amazon Canada without description or box art, on 11th October the box art was added, and on 12th October 2017 they started shipping copies out. It was released in Canada first, before it was made available in the UK.

Physical copies[edit | edit source]

A full UK release is planned for the end of July 2018.

On shelves - Canada only at the moment:[edit | edit source]

Folks have spotted physical copies to buy:

  • On the merch stand at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto, $30
  • Sunrise, in Toronto
  • Wal-Mart in Burlington Ontario

Online:[edit | edit source]

So far, people around the world have generally had the most success buying CDs directly from Amazon Canada - the base price is low and customers in UK, USA, and mainland Europe have ordered and received their CDs within 2 - 5 days. However, unless you are in Canada, the shipping fees are quite high and you risk having to pay additional taxes / customs fees.

If you are in the UK, your best bet at the moment is either Dress Circle or third-party sellers on Amazon UK (which often stock the item for a lower price, but shipping times and customer support quality are a mixed bag). 

Known online stockists:[edit | edit source]
