After being main touring support for Rise Against, Bare Bones have announced their own Australian headline tour, which will see them playing venues all through Australia. Joining them in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane is MAVERICK.
Since their formation in 2013, Sydney’s Bare Bones have been all party and recklessness, a suspenseful maelstrom of off-kilter guitars and razor sharp vocals. This is sweaty, visceral, and feisty rock music that bears shades of The Bronx at their most relentless.
After the release of their two EP’s, ‘Villains’ and ‘Cut Throat Living’, Bare Bones wasted no time in establishing themselves as a moving force within the Australian Punk scene, garnering sterling reviews from Australian music press, and turning heads of industry insiders.
Recently Bare Bones joined the ranks of iconic heavy label Resist Records, with the band stating “Each one of us cut our teeth in a scene that was pioneered by punk and hardcore bands under the Resist banner, so in that regard Resist has been held in such high esteem by all of us for more than a decade. Being asked to be part of the Resist family was extremely humbling, and feels like the perfect label for what Bare Bones is about.”
With this signing came Bare Bones long awaited debut full length record, ‘Bad Habits’, which features their single ‘Ravensburg‘. This is a natural progression from Bare Bones’ two EP releases ‘Villians’ and ‘Cut Throat Living’. There’s more melodic dynamics in these songs, but they’re balanced by tones and riffs more crushing than ever. The result is inspiring, stated by Rolling Stone Magazine as “a hit record of the genre.”
Bare Bones have more than held their own on-stage supporting high-profile heavy acts from Every Time I Die to Northlane, Black Label Society to Cancer Bats, and opened the main stage at Sydney’s 2015 Soundwave installment alongside Slipknot and Marilyn Manson. A fearsome set at UNIFY 2017 grabbed attention from wasted punters and admiring industry folks alike. More recently, the band completed a national tour with Stone Sour as main and only support, playing to around 15,000 across one week. They also scored another main support slot with the notorious The Bronx for their Australian side shows while on tour with Pennywise. The crowds go nuts for ’em, because you never know exactly what kind of wild shit you’re going to get. There’s something damn sexy about it.
