UK four-piece Strange Bones have shared their new single and video “DEATHWISH” today, marking the second track released from their forthcoming debut album ENGLAND SCREAMS due out August 20th via FRKST / 300 Entertainment. “DEATHWISH” is an apocalyptic anthem, capturing the band’s penchant for huge choruses, intertwined with shattering riffs and pummeling electronica. In the accompanying video, the band’s night out quickly takes a turn when they run into a group of zombies and chaos ensues.

Speaking on the track, frontman Bobby Bentham explains: “Nobody is getting out alive. ‘DEATHWISH’ is about feeling trapped by your surroundings and understanding the restraints that we have are put in place by nobody but ourselves. I have a strange relationship with Blackpool, UK, the dystopian Disneyland sea-side town that time forgot, the good and the bad of this place and how it has influenced me is portrayed in the song.”

A mutant creation spawned from a year of experimentation and pushing personal boundaries, the forthcoming album ENGLAND SCREAMS is Strange Bones’ most authentic and ambitious work to date. With Bobby at the helm on writing, production, mixing, and engineering, the record is a seismic, bone-crushing sonic escape. Focusing on the relationship between chaos and balance, it’s a healthy reality check that rips through the highs and lows of life. The album marks the band’s first full-length release with FRKST, an imprint of 300 Entertainment run by Johnny Stevens, frontman of the band Highly Suspect.

Expanding on the album themes, Bentham says: “The idea for 'ENGLAND SCREAMS' album came from trying to understand the relationship between order and chaos, the two factions that fly different flags but create balance when they meet in battle. I’m not afraid of taking things to extremes, which aligns with the highs and lows of not just songwriting, but life in general. It's where I feel comfortable when creating, completely outside of my comfort zone, Which asks the question if there was ever a comfort zone there to begin with.”

About Strange Bones:
Hailing from the murky depths of British seaside town Blackpool, the Bentham brothers Bobby, Will and Jack, were raised on a diet of classic punk and have been playing music together since they were children. Joined later by Nathan Sanderson on drums, Strange Bones’ unhinged and full-throttle sound is a mix of distorted guitars and heavy sub-bass, all held together with venomous vocal delivery and biting lyrics. “Strange Bones has never been driving in one lane, the whole fucking highway is open”, smiles Bobby.

The band have toured the UK and Europe tirelessly, earning a reputation for ferocious and adrenaline-fuelled live shows that are as experimental visually as they are sonically. Recent highlights include support to Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, alongside performing at festivals such as Reading and Leeds and Download. Their EP, Blitz Part 2, was independently released in April 2020 and saw support by the likes of NME, Rock Sound, Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1, Kerrang, and more. Since then, the band has released collaborations with Bob Vylan, Calva Louise and Death Tour.
