Honeybone to play The Tote with the Naysayers 

Join rock locals Honeybone and The Naysayers at The Tote for their first live performance in god knows how long on February 19th 2021!

Dunedin expats Honeybone will electrify with their blistering psych-garage blend, performing numbers from their latest and highly acclaimed album 'Spheres' for the first time for a live audience. The Naysayers meanwhile, will tantalise with krautrock-post-punk concoctions from their album-in-progress – drawing from a wide pallet. If you’re into off-kilter music, chances are you might hear something you like. Part of the furniture of the local scene, these bands aim to be at least three times more exciting than actual furniture

New album Spheres out November 13th 2020 

Honeybone will be releasing their newest LP Spheres digitally on Bandcamp and all streaming services on Friday 13th November.

Exposing their darker and heavier side, from psychedelic rock band Honeybone comes the brand new album 'Spheres'. Bringing you a collection of songs written between 2015 and 2019, 'Spheres' split the writing equally between drummer Rachel Trainor and guitarist Drew Handcock. Recorded in 2019, the band took a real DIY approach, mostly recording at their home studio and Three Phase Studios in Brunswick, Melbourne, with Drew producing and mixing the album. "There's an undercurrent theme throughout the album of unease with the state of the world, alongside concerns for the environment and relationships" explain Honeybone. The second album to come from the band shows a real growth and maturity in their sound and songwriting style. 

The LP will be available on vinyl through Kozmic Artifactz label on 28th November.

New single 'Stratosphere' out Friday 24th April 

On Friday 24th April Honeybone are releasing a new single ‘Stratosphere’ along with a music video directed and filmed by Nick Manuell at Big Door Studios. 

Stratosphere is the first single off their forthcoming album ‘Spheres’, and deals with apocalyptic themes surrounding climate change and frustration with the state of politics around the world. Drummer Rachel Trainor and guitarist Drew Handcock share lead vocals on this song, blending vocal harmonies with heavy riffs and dreamy progressions. Honeybone have found a newer, psychedelic sound with this new album, and the ‘Stratosphere’ music video reflects this, using psychedelic effects in a dark room to reflect the themes of the song.

'Stratosphere' will be available on all streaming platforms and free/pay what you can download on Bandcamp. Any proceeds made from downloads will be donated to Support Act’s COVID19 Emergency Appeal.
