Strange Bones are a four piece from Blackpool. Bobby Bentham, vocals and guitar. Will Bentham, bass guitar and vocals, Jack Bentham guitar and vocals, and Stuart ‘Spud’ Newburn, drums and vocals. In their early teens they formed a punk-band and played nearly 1000 shows together around the world: Japan, US, Australia, Italy, Spain, Germany – played them all. Toured with Rancid, did a Maida Vale session and a Big Weekend for Radio 1. Had a Zane Lowe Hottest Record and won XFM Awards.

First came ‘Sick of it All’ (SOIA) a powerful slab of Blackpool Rock, followed by the anthem ‘God Save The Teen’, which have both had continuous plays and heavy support by Annie Mac, Dan P Carter, Phil Taggart, and Abbie McCarthy on BBC Radio 1, as well as Julie Adenuga on Beats1, Alex Baker on Kerrang Radio, and Ian Camfield on XS Radio.

The band decamped to LA for two weeks and recorded with Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters at their Studio 606 – using the SoundCity Neve desk, the desk that Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Fleetwood Mac Rumours, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Cheap Trick and Guns and Roses all recorded on. Dan Lancaster (Blink 182, Bring Me The Horizon, Lower Than Atlantis) then mixed all the tracks.
