Honeybone are a three piece Psychedelic/Garage Rock band based in Melbourne, Australia, and hail from the city of Dunedin, in the deep south of New Zealand. Featuring drummer and vocalist Rachel Trainor, bass and backing vocalist Peter Jermakoff, and guitarist/vocalist Drew Handcock.
Making the trans-Tasman move in March 2012, Honeybone have finely crafted their brand of psychedelic tinged garage rock since May 2009. Live show highlights so far have been supporting slots for NZ greats such as The Datsuns, Dragon and Luger Boa.
After releasing their debut EP ‘Soul on Fire’ in 2010, Honeybone concentrated on writing and recording for a follow-up album, releasing their first studio LP ‘Talk Back Baby’ in October 2013. They embarked on an NZ tour to promote the release in February 2014.
Honeybone then released a new single 'Dance' in April 2016 with an accompanying video. This was followed by their latest EP 'Spits and Curses', produced by Lee Jones released in May 2016.
Their latest single ‘Right Hand’, released in March 2018, features heavy riffs and drummer Rachel Trainor on lead vocal, and the band are in pre-production for their next release slated for early next year.
