So I found this little group a few months ago and wrote up a little piece for Stagedive mag about them. Do have a read, I hope you decide to check out some of their tunes as they have worked hard for the wicked sound produced. Be sure to get amongst this tour that kicks off in September!
Not your typical punk rockers, smashing and gritty Bare Bones are so much more than awesome rock riffs held together with banging drums. Receiving great reviews and wrecking PA's everywhere, popping their profile up on Australia's own Triple J Unearthed website proved to be a major game changer for BB winning the opener spot on the Sydney leg of the Soundwave 2015 tour. These five young blokes from Sydney town have been playing sold out gigs in some of Australia's more musically historical haunts including Oxford Art Gallery, Newtown Social Club and The Manning Bar since 2013. In their own words BB write 'no frills, genuine music under the adage that music should first and foremost be written for personal enjoyment.' which is testament to the dedication shown to their art.
Their virgin EP 'Villains' gained radical prestige with KillYourStereo.com stating the EP was “one of the most top quality releases from a local hardcore band we've heard, period..” Gigging intensely they earned themselves a very loyal following around the traps for all ages, scoring some dream International support slots with names like Senses Fail, For Today, Harms Way, Heights, Every Time I Die, Northlane and Slates. Not to be the type to rest on their laurels they followed up 'Villains' with the 2014 release of 'Cut Throat Living'. These 6 tracks were noted by keepitfast.com as “...drunk ‘n roll that will batter you around the head and body with its frantic and caustic speed”. True to form and all the street press hype, they have skyrocketed in popularity with their Soundwave success and there is no doubt in my mind that Bare Bones are heading towards a massively successful touring career.
Tom, James, Chris, James and Chris have created a furiously large cacophony of sound that is reminiscent of Every Time I Die, August Burns Red and Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster, and both EP's 'Villains' and 'Cut Throat Living' are out now through iTunes / Spotify and BigCartel...get sweaty with this new wild and frenzied masterpiece.
