THE BONES are back with their sixth full-length album, “Flash The Leather”
It all started out for THE BONES back in 1993 in a lovely little harbour-town called Karlskrona in the Southwest of Sweden. Sharing a mutual love for high energetic punk and rock music in the vein of The Ramones and Motörhead and 50s and 60s rock’n’roll. In addition to these icons more surprisingly The Bones were always influenced by the melodic qualities of bands such as The Bay City Rollers and The Barracudas too.
The result was the sonic equivalent of Elvis, Johnny Cash, The Ramones and Social Distortion jammed in the backseat of a Cadillac watching Grease at a seedy Drive In. A sound with no genre boundaries that was embraced by Punks, Rockers and even Metalheads. Five albums and a fist-full of EPs followed which were devoured by an ever-expanding fan base.
Since signing to People Like You Records in 2012 – the foursome have become an unstoppable Rock’n’Roll machine. The Bones hit the road hard and have already shared stages with icons such as Die Toten Hosen, Social Distortion, Motörhead and The Dropkick Murphys. Like their previous album ‘Monkeys With Guns’, The Bones’ trademark smashing beats, screaming guitars, a sweaty evil bass and sing-along melodies collide in rock n roll perfection to make this their best work yet, and given their track record, that’s quite something.
The Bones are;
Beef Bonanza on lead vocals & guitar, Spooky on drums, Boner on vocals & guitar, Andi Nero bass.
