With a band like Bare Bones‘ reputation, you can only assume it’ll be a couple more years before they absolutely blow up bigger than anticipated. This year was an indication of that happening after the Sydney boys scored two prime-time opening slots for Rise Against and Andrew W.K.‘s Australian shows after releasing their stellar debut album Bad Habits last year.
The good news is more new music is on the way, but before we even start frothing over that idea, let’s see what frontman Tom Kennedy frothed over this year with his contribution to our Wall of Sound 2018 Year In Review…
