Milan/London exper­i­men­tal band Throw Down Bones are tour­ing their new album Three, with a live appear­ance at The Gold­en Lion, Tod­mor­den tak­ing place on 12th October.

It’s a pow­er­ful work that feels both apoc­a­lyp­tic and jubi­lant. Three is Throw Down Bones’ eager­ly-await­ed return fol­low­ing Two in 2018, and the trag­ic pass­ing of found­ing mem­ber Dave Cocks in a motor­cy­cle acci­dent in 2019. 

Choos­ing to con­tin­ue the band in his hon­our, sur­viv­ing co-founder Francesco Van­ni returned to London’s New Riv­er Stu­dios with long-term col­lab­o­ra­tor and pro­duc­er James Apari­cio (Spir­i­tu­al­ized, Nick Cave) and a new band in tow: bassist Mar­i­on Andrau and drum­mer Raphael Mura. 

The result is a 9‑track album span­ning feed­back-blast­ed indus­tri­al psy­che­delia, heavy elec­tron­ics, krautrock and dark ambi­ent. Three is a pow­er­ful and mov­ing record – a post-indus­tri­al tri­umph that’s at once hedo­nis­tic, cathar­tic and poignant. 

“Every sin­gle note in this album is ded­i­cat­ed to our broth­er Dave Cocks.”

Also appear­ing on the line­up: Cal­lis who we have fea­tured here, with more about their new work to come this week. Also garage band Holy Popes.
