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.
