Backsliders latest album - their 15th - BONECRUNCH is their most varied release to date.

The 12 tracks represent a band with varied musical influences-swamp-blues feels on 'Dog in the Fight' and 'Tea & Sugar Train', intense blues riffs on 'No Know-How' and 'Bad Recruit'; surf sounds on 'Tombstoning'; to the eccentric 'Obake' [Ghost] where 1960s Japanese soundtrack music meets dub-reggae.

"We [Rob Hirst and I] wrote this album over a period of a few years, which has resulted in a really diverse collection of songs. As always though, we tend to try to glue it all together with a gritty blues-based sonic aesthetic." Dom Turner

'It's been a joy writing and recording these 12 new songs. The tracks went down in one or two takes, at our favourite Sydney studio, with minimal overdubs. As the name suggests, Bonecrunch summons Backsliders' raw elements - strong vocal & guitar melodies, urgent beats and blazing harp - then blends and bends them into something else again. Best of all, the album has a restless energy and broad dynamic range which replicates the on-stage power of the band'. Rob Hirst
