Strange Bones are back on tour with a handful of dates supporting Aussie punks Amyl and the Sniffers in the Netherlands as well as headline shows in Germany and back on British shores. To celebrate, the Blackpool boys have announced they will be releasing a brand new song in three weeks.
However, fans will be able to get their hands on ‘Here Come The Wolves‘ as soon as tomorrow (21st Semptember). The twist is the band will be sending the new track directly via Whatsapp messenger to everyone who sends ‘Howl‘ to 07999527181 in the app.
Strange Bones say they want to ‘cut out the middleman’ and give fans a chance to receive the music ‘straight to their phones – sparking the revolution in secrecy’.
They said: “Here Come The Wolves is a reaction to a society of hypernormalisation. Society has anxiety, and nobody really knows the true from the false. When the public narrative is curated by the state run media, a generation in search of equality is left with divide.”
The Lancashire rockers, who are the three Bentham brothers: Bobby, Jack and Will and their childhood friend Spud Newburn, have worked their way up through the punk scene in the UK. Radio support from the likes of Annie Mac, Julie Adenuga and Mistajam undeniably brought them attention but their raucous live shows are what made their name.
Touring with Cabbage and Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes certainly did them no harm, earning them festival slots at Reading and Leeds, TRNSMT and Download Festival to name but a few.
Here Come The Wolves is a three-minute noise rock fireball. It’s animalistic by nature and frontman Bobby Bentham, who also co-produced the track, provides the growling guitar and snarled vocals.
