What indeed, Billy? What indeed? I have long pondered a name change for the band…not because I don’t like the band name Bones (sheesh, using a double negative in a sentence linked with Shakespeare is just…ironic?!). But more so because…there are just a lot of other musical acts named Bones. Like a lot. And, well…in this day and age of Internet weirdness, lawsuits, and tomfoolery, now is the time to make a change, with a new album in the works and with the running out of business cards and such. And I just hate that when you see our music in Spotify, it links to someone else as the artist too. Efffff that.
So….I am a bit saddened and a little scared to announce that Bones is growing into Bonesyard. Though it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue the same way, I think it’s a good transition. I mean, that’s the webaddress. And the Internet doesn’t lie.
So meet Bonesyard. Bonesyard! A new logo is in the works. So is a new album. And…I guess reissues of the old ones under the new name…Bonesyard.
Hang-on to your hats, join along with me. Bonesyard is here to rock ‘n’ roll. Lo-fi style. In Americana.
