Lady Bones share "24 Hour Party Girl," tour (2015)

Lady Bones are excited to share “24 Hour Party Girl,” the second single from the Boston trio’s upcoming full length debut Dying.
Due out June 30 via Midnight Werewolf Records (Kal Marks, Big Mess, Sneeze), Lady Bones premiered their latest single via VICE together with the beginning of their summer tour dates. After sharing lead single “Botch” with Stereogum, “24 Hour Party Girl” takes Lady Bones on another rollercoaster ride through rough edged grunge, twisted Americana, and pounding post-punk. Vice noted the band’s hometown influences, stating “They’ve taken cues from their hometown heroes and kept a similar grunge spirit alive with dark vocals, semi-ironic balls-out solos and polyrhythms, and lyrical introspection that avoids becoming too self-serious”.
Speaking about the song’s lyrics, vocalist/guitarist Sean Gilston said, “”24 Hour Party Girl” is about a person addicted to attention… not being able to feel accomplished without approval from peers.  Letting other people’s opinions and views of you control and change the way you would naturally live your life.  I wrote the lyrics from the perspective of a young girl at a club.”

Dying, produced by Dan Angel and James Ryskalchick at Sex Dungeon Studios (Pile, Fat History Month, Little Big League) in Philadelphia, is a spectacular record of dark and haunting indie punk with a backwoods twang that sounds more like the product of a band living near the Floridian swamps than the bustling Boston DIY scene.
Call it “sludge pop” if you will. The young trio are very much a part of that burgeoning Boston scene however, another hardworking band void of self-seriousness that have been molding their sound since forming while in high school in 2011. They carry the torch for Boston’s underground indie punk, representing a city they grew up in and Lady Bones continue to build upon the city’s reputation of exceptional post-punk indebted bands comprised of impeccable musicians and a generally carefree attitude. Lady Bones’ self described “ugly pop” is full of intriguing melodies, riffs, and vibrant polyrhythms that contort between deranged and sincere, pulling influence from the scene around them and molding it into their own sound.
