Northern California’s punk rock cult favorites Tsunami Bomb are back with ‘The Spine That Binds,’ their first new LP in 15 years.
The LP, which was produced by the band and mixed by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Jeff Rosenstock), will be released on November 8th via Alternative Tentacles.
The first single (“The Hathors”) is now streaming everywhere.
Vocalist Kate Jacobi says, “The story of “The Hathors” is haunting and sad as much as defiant. In the journey of learning to be happy with who you are, there are those that won’t believe in you and people who will be let down with who you become. It’s about turning down the voices in your head of everyone that said “you can’t” and silencing the doubt, knowing that it will never fully go away.”
‘The Spine That Binds’ will be released digitally and on limited edition colored vinyl.

Honing their skills of melody while being more in-your-face and more aggressive than ever, they conjure a dark journey of discovery with each track. Originally formed in 1998, and disbanding after many member changes in 2005, TSUNAMI BOMB reformed at the end of 2015.
