Bio

Australian-Gothic punks Horace Bones make intense, dark and frenzied music. Inspired by the likes of The Birthday Party, The Drones and The Cramps, the four-piece ransack the shadows of the Australian landscape and psyche to produce a sound equally unique and gut wrenching.

Born from the remnants of a house they’ve shared/soiled since 2015, the band comprises of members: Christian P Fish (drums), Caz (lead guitar), Dern Cockburn (bass) and Oisin Kelly (guitar/vocals).

Cutting their teeth on stages shared with the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses (UK), British India, The Pretty Littles, Bad//Dreems and Lurch & Chief, has seen each show mount with sweaty uproarious anarchy. Add to that, a signing to boutique management label Thirds Music and jaw-dropping sets at NYE On The Hill and St. Kilda Fest, its clear why Horace Bones’ are becoming one of Australia’s most dangerous up and comers.

I'm out in the dirty desert on this new one. It's rough and all sorts horror. I'm diggin' my teeth right into this.

Trust friendships to turn the original's horror punk sneer into this industrial nuclear meltdown.

I heard this for the first time last week and listening to it again - I love it even more. This is packed full of energy, keeping that unique sort of style Horace Bones have. Love the screaming bits too.
