Abbott in the Firing Line

Sydney Rock'n'Roll act Bonez have released a brand new video clip which flips the bird to corporate America in 4 minutes of channel-changing terror.

Set as though watching from the comfort of your armchair, the clip flicks through channels of mindless corporate propaganda mixed with crazy footage from such occasions as the Black Friday Sales in the US and a Bonez live show at Frankie's Pizza.  Even our own Tony Abbott cops a shot, matched with the vocal line "We got States of fools who make our rules...".


Bonez lead-singer Tomi stated on the endeavour "There's so much information being jammed down everyone's throats every day... it's hard to know exactly what to believe. I don't know what to believe, but I know that when Jay-Z gets beat up by Beyonce's Sister in a lift I wanna know all about it... and odds are I will hear about little else".  


TONEDEAF World-premiered the new clip this morning at 10.30am DST to the masses.  Click HERE for the link.

The clip single Lemonade has been performing well commercially with a current #6 slot on the Triple J Unearthed Rock Charts and a host of other radio station play around the country.  It's a catchy Funk-Rock offering with hints of Hip-Hop and smouldering lead guitar work.

Bonez are currently half way through a 2 month tour of the East Coast of Australia as part of the Make a Scene National Tour with Brisbane brother/sister act Barefoot Alley.

Aside from using music as the medium to push boundaries lyrically and get across a real message, the band is not afraid of making a scene in public to promote Australian Rock'n'Roll.   This has led them to such antics as heading into the JJJ Studios in Sydney and covering a Taylor Swift track in the lobby amidst all the controversy, getting arrested on tour in QLD, Steel Panther related destruction parties and setting up Lemonade stands in the middle of the city to flog the new single. Make a scene with Bonez and LET'S GET WEIRD (title of upcoming EP).
Check out the new clip, download the new single and catch them live appearing all up and down the East Coast of Australia throughout Feb and March. The band will back up with a 2nd single release in April with a subsequent tour.
