English term or phrase: cross-buster bat signal
Late last year, the band's Cross-Buster bat signal issued its invitation to the crew at large: Jay Bentley in Vancouver, Greg Hetson in Los Angeles, Brian Baker in Washington, D.C., Bobby Schayer in Seattle, and Greg Graffin at the de﷓facto BR bat cave in Ithaca.

This is what I would say. More information might shed a different light. What type of band is it? I would guess Goth, Metal or Alternative. From having watched the Batman movies with my son in Spanish, all the batstuff is fairly straightforward (in a spanglish kind of way): baticueva, batichica, batiseñal, etc.) ¡Suerte!

Bat signal se refiere aquí a la señal que emiten los murciélagos similar a un radar, para saber la localización de los objetos en la oscuridad. Cross-Buster, si bien parece el nombre del grupo podría traducirse por "busca cruces", o "caza cruces", aunque por la cacofonía es mejor utilizar el primer término. Espero te haya sido de ayuda.

Cross-Buster debe ser un nombre propio, me imagino que el de la banda. Técnicamente el termino "bati" no corresponde porque la bati-señal es la señal de Batman, pero en este caso están usando este símbolo como representación, digmos para que la gente se imagine que se avisó al equipo del grupo como se hacía en el programa de Batman.
