The Skinny: Following a promising 2013 that included a UK tour with Californian heavy rock outfit Throw The Goat and an appearance at Bloodstock Festival, York-based quintet The Bastard Sons are pleased to announce that they will be releasing their new EP Roads on March 10th via Kaiju Records, the follow up to their debut 6-track Bones. To celebrate, they’re streaming the crushing new song “Raise The Horse” on SoundCloud – listen above.

Recorded and mixed at Edge Recording Studios by Rory Vallely and mastered at Air Studios by Ray Staff (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Clash), Roads is a brutish slab of heavy, punk-infused rock’n’roll that holds no punches and leaves no riff behind. The lyrical musings of larger-than-life frontman JJ range from rants about ancient warfare on the galloping battle-punk of “IV” to the beer-sodden laments of monstrous radio friendly regret anthem “O Brothel Where Art Thou”; the eagle eared might even pick out the Game Of Thrones referencing “Winter” – a timely punk love song to the Stark family of the hit HBO drama which returns in April this year.

Roads EP Track Listing:

01. O’ Brothel Where Art Thou
02. Raise The Horse
03. Sobre La Muerte
04. Seasons End
05. IV
06. Winter
