Army Of Bones
OnlineHaving already built a reputation for their visceral and engaging live shows, Brighton-based band Army Of Bones got together last year to record their self-titled debut album, out now via their own label Bones Music Group.
Formed of Martin Smith, Jonny Bird, Reuben Harsant and Steve Evans, Army Of Bones create songs of hope infused with doubt. Produced by Gethin Pearson (The Enemy, JAWS), the album strives to bring things that are in the dark to light - whether that’s the pain of a struggling relationship, the feeling of lack of identity or desperation for a city, the band want us to rise up and realise how vital we all really are.
Following the release of their anthemic AA-side Batteries / River last year, on their debut album Army Of Bones deliver a collection of emotionally engaging and hauntingly captivating tracks, each oozing a unique, profound power. As frontman Martin Smith sings “Oh my love, in you I’m found, take my hand and I will follow... there’s no fear in our tomorrow...” in ‘Ecclesiastes’, a strong sense of hope is exuded with heart-wrenching force as Smith’s impassioned vocals soar. Musically exquisite and lyrically rich, Army Of Bones is an album that truly believes in the power of music to heal divisions.
Having already received acclaim from The Revue and BBC Introducing, and headlined explosive sold-out shows across the country, with their debut album Army Of Bones look set to become of the stand-out bands of 2017. You can catch the band live at the following dates:
