To The Bones

To The Bones

 Bolton, England, GBR
BandRockAlternative

TO THE BONES are frightening in both terms of power, aggression and their unrelenting squalling mass of heads down no nonsense, blistering pulsating rock 'n' roll groove. Their 'take no prisoners' punishment of this raging schizoid doom laden colossus is naturally evolving into something special.

Biography

To The Bones are essential. Hailing from glamorous Bolton, the four-piece play a feral mix of riffs and melody; imagine the Pixies tackling QOTSA/Motorhead and you're along the right lines. Vocalist Rhys.G.Bradley possesses the most glorious guttural growl since Kurt Cobain shredded this larynx for our listening pleasure. The band write amazing, hook-laden rock songs that you'll find rumbling around your head days after your last To The Bones fix.

Having released a split single through Org Records at the start of 2008, To The Bones signed up with new label Medici Records in May. In July, the band released a double A-side made up of the scuzzed-up fuzzed-out melody of 'Sonic Mammoth' and the terrifying aural assault of 'Sharkie's Bone Symphony'. They received airplay from Zane Lowe and Bruce Dickinson at the BBC and were invited to record an Xfm session for John Kennedy. The NME, Rock Sound and The Fly gave them mentions – from out of nowhere had appeared a fearsome new force in rock. Even MTV2 noticed what was going on, playing the band's video on 120 Minutes and Headbanger's Ball. Having heard about the building buzz, producer Dave Eringa (Manics, Idlewild, Ash) offered his services to the band for free. In 24 hours, the band recorded and mixed their second Medici Records single. Entitled Rex, and released on September 29th, it's a hypnotic, mesmerising blend of crushing riffs and tribal, chanted melody. It's a song that demands an immediate re-listen – and then another, and another and another… With two new b-sides and featuring exclusive artwork by acclaimed comic book artist 'JackAdemus', it's another signal of intent.
