The Bent Bones set to release Seasons EP
Friday Sep. 2nd, 2016
The Bent Bones, a Bozeman-based funk rock band, have developed a reputation as one of the hardest working music groups in the region. The band stormed onto the scene in 2014 playing huge house parties and released a self-titled EP. These shows and recordings sparked the interest of a Grammy award winning engineer/producer who then helped record their album, Drivin’ to the Rhythm. The band also launched a Kickstarter campaign that successfully covered costs of the album. Drivin’ to the Rhythm’ and associated shows fueled the band to perform throughout Montana. These gigs included TedX Bozeman and the Moods of the Madison summer concert. Now, the band is charging on with the upcoming release of Seasons EP.
Seasons EP is entirely written, recorded and produced by the band. With lead vocalist/recording engineer Cody Lindblom, The Bent Bones were able to take a unique approach to the album and set up a studio in a family home on Flathead Lake. In May 2016, the band brought all their music equipment, studio gear and food for the weeklong recording session. The living room became the drum room and the bass rig was in the basement. Guitar amps went in one bedroom while another became the control room. In just three days, three songs were completed. Lindblom recalls, “It was the most relaxed session. We were able to record with minimal distractions.”
The lake setting, and the change of season out of winter and into spring, with summer on the horizon, was the perfect place for capturing the music. Lyricist/guitarist Anthony Gaglia describes the material as, “A reflection of life and its changes.” It was a special experience for the Bent Bones. They feel they are not only becoming a better band but also more efficient at self-producing their music. Bringing the recording process in house gave the band more control over their sound and created a product that accurately depicts their music. Band members feel that Seasons EP is their best material yet.
The Bent Bones headline a release show for Seasons EP on September 9th at Faultline North in Bozeman. Opening acts Hubba Hubba and The Permians kick off the night. The show is all ages with tickets available online at www.faultlinenorth.com and also at Cactus Records in Bozeman. $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Doors open at 7pm and music starts at 8pm.
