BARE BONES - Drop "Gold Leaf" From Upcoming Album and Announce Headline Tour!

Sydney Hard Rock / Punk Rockers, Bare Bones, are back with their third single "Gold Leaf". The new single is the last to be pulled from upcoming album 'Rival Minds', out Friday November 1 through Resist Records (Parkway Drive, Polaris, La Dispute). The Sydneysiders will also be jumping on tour with support from friends in Fangz to launch their album in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne late November/December!

"Gold Leaf" serves up driving riffs and a fierce sound that Bare Bones has earned a reputation for. The brand new single is a crushing wall of sound and an anthem of frustration that vents about inauthentic people, from close relations to those we falsely admire. Vocalist Thomas Kennedy says 'Gold Leaf is about fake people, fake friends, false idols, feeling alienated, and like you can't relate to the people around you."

"Gold Leaf" is the third single cut from 'Rival Minds', the bands sophomore album due out in just a few weeks. 'Rival Minds' is produced by Stevie Knight at Electric Sun (Tonight Alive, Dream On Dreamer, Yours Truly), mixed by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore, Hands Like Houses) and mastered by Grant Berry (You Me At Six, All Time Low). Kennedy explains that as a whole, the album deals with "the duality, the light and dark of the human mind, both introspectively, and outwardly."

Preceding "Gold Leaf" was "Rust" and "Crawl The Night". As the first taste of music in two years, both singles were received with open arms and snatched up national radio play on Triple J's Short. Fast. Loud. and plenty of media love worldwide. Check out a couple of rave reviews below!

Bare Bones is Thomas Kennedy (vocals), James Dean (guitar), Scott Daniels (guitar), James Clarke (bass) and Chris Blancato (drums). The five piece materialised in 2013, and the band wasted no time in taking their sweaty, visceral and feisty sound to the masses, quickly carving out their own path in the Australian music landscape. In celebration of 'Rival Minds', Bare Bones will be taking to the road for a quick run of shows starting Friday November 22 at The Vangaurd in Sydney alongside Fangz and Spitting Teeth, Saturday November 30 at Crowbar Black in Brisbane supported by Fangz and Old Town and finally Melbourne on Saturday December 7 at Stay Gold with Fangz and The Last Martyr.

"Gold Leaf" is out now and available through iTunes & Apple Music/Spotify/Google Play and all good online stores and streaming outlets. 'Rival Minds' will be available through Resist Records Friday November 1, with pre-orders available at: Tickets to the 'Rival Minds Tour' available below!
