The two have also shared a brand new single.
Liverpool rock duo Rival Bones have announced their new EP Strangefruit, due to be released 23 November via Alya Records. The band have also released their new single Hot Blooded.
Rival Bones are comprised of just two members: Chris Thomason (formerly of Boss Keloid) on drums, while the powerful riffing and vocals come from James Whitehouse. The duo sit astride several musical worlds, bringing to mind Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and Audioslave, all while showing that less is more.
Rival Bones made their debut back in 2015 with the release of You Know Who You Are, followed up by Robot Girl and Lost Along the Way in 2016, the two-piece began to establish themselves as one of the hottest rock bands to emerge from the North West in the last decade. In 2017, Rival Bones released their self-titled EP, signing soon after to Alya Records and playing Zandari Festival in Seoul, South Korea.
Upon their return the band were invited to support Frank Turner’s Mongol Horde, Electric Six, Dead! and Fizzy Blood at their respective shows in Manchester and were booked to perform at Sound City Liverpool, Focus Wales and The Alternative Escape, as well as Amplified Festival and INmusic Festival Zagreb.
Now follows Strangefruit, a highly impressive four-track collection further showcasing the band’s undeniable talent and muscle.
