STRANGE BONES unleash fiery new single UNDERDOGS & announce May live shows 21/02/2020 News 5 STRANGE BONES unleash fiery new single UNDERDOGS & announce May live shows BLITZ PART 2 EP Due 10th April “[Strange Bones] started life as a straight up guitar punk band and as they’ve grown and evolved, they’ve found this really heavy electronica side to their music. That is the best I’ve heard from them, as far as I’m concerned, watch out for Strange Bones in the future” – Jack Saunders, BBC Radio 1 “A punk upbringing, unrivalled fearlessness and really, really good songs. Meet the UK’s most full-throttle young band” – Rock Sound “I hate the phrase ‘guitar music’. It’s not dead, it’s not breathing. It’s music. Everything that once was, will be again, in one shape or form”, smiles STRANGE BONES vocalist and commander Bobby Bentham, “Ever since I started writing, I’ve always loved the idea of exploring every single back alley I could. A korg prodigy or a matchbox guitar – if I can get a mad sound out of it, I’m going to use it”. His words ring true in STRANGE BONES latest offering, UNDERDOGS released today. At just two and a half minutes long, the track is seismic, capturing everything that the Blackpool band embodies – hard graft, unpredictability, frenzied and adrenaline-drenched stage presence, all whilst blurring the lines between venomous punk and crushingly heavy electronica. CLICK TO LISTEN TO UNDERDOGS Produced by Bobby, and mixed by Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters), Underdogs features guest vocals from Jess Allanic of Calva Louise. It follows previous single Napalm Über Alles, which landed plaudits from BBC Radio 1, Clash, Radio X, Rock Sound, Gigwise. Both features on forthcoming EP BLITZ PART 2 due 10th April, the sequel and evil twin to last year’s Blitz Part 1 (KKKK – Kerrang!). Bobby explains, “Underdogs is a paradox, a reaction to the contradictions found within a broken system that’s set up for us to fall on our faces. It’s like playing Texas holdem with your leg in a bear trap. This second instalment of Blitz part two is the embodiment of my disillusionment towards an industry of takers, a narcissistic yet empowering viewpoint on life and its troubles”. STRANGE BONES have spent much of 2020 on the road, with a sold out UK headline tour. Not ones to slow down, the band are raring to get back on the road, announcing a handful of shows in May alongside The Great Escape festival. May 06 – London, The 100 Club May 07 – Manchester, Gorilla May 10 – Glasgow, King Tut’s May 11 – Dublin, The Road To Great Escape May 15 – Brighton, The Great Escape STRANGE BONES collectively grew up on an awe-inspiring diet of punk rock, with brothers Bobby, Jack (guitars) and Will (bass) glued to punk gigs recorded to VHS tapes by their parents under their bracket Jettisoundz/Visionary. Hypnotised by performances from the likes of Black Flag and UK Subs, the sense of community and full-throttle energy is something the band endeavour to recreate at their notoriously ferocious live shows. Highlights include support to Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, Yonaka and Cabbage, alongside Reading and Leeds, Isle Of Wight, Download, TRNSMT and 2000 Trees. Armed with an EP that hits like Tyson, an unquenchable thirst for second-to-none live shows, STRANGE BONES are shaking things up, with a sound that is undeniably exciting.
