Bombus: The Poet And The Parrot – new album



In 2008 in Gothenburg, Sweden, a bunch of friends who happen to be called Matte, Feffe, Jonas and Peter, reportedly got together “with a rough idea”. And as it often happens, especially in Sweden, their idea evolved into playing their own, unique kind of “no bullshit metal and hard rock served with a slice of punkrock energy”. Inspired by the record collections of each band member - which we are safe to assume include some MELVINS' stuff, MOTÖRHEAD, METALLICA and, we are told, POISON IDEA, and, after “six to eight beers and the stereo maxed out”, that of WASP and MASTODON - BOMBUS was born. In Gothenburg underground, they have quickly built themselves a solid fan base as well as reputation of “all killer, no filler” live act. Two years later, in 2010, they released three 7” singles and a full-length which they issued through their own label, Mourningwood Records. And, after extended touring across Europe in support of their self-titled debut and when the band started to record new material in early 2012, Century Media Records became aware of BOMBUS. BOMBUS' debut on Century Media is called, poetically, ‘The Poet And The Parrot’; it is out now in Europe, August 26th, 2013, and is due in North America come September 17th, 2013. ‘The Poet And The Parrot’ was recorded, mixed and mastered at Welfare Sounds Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden with the goal:

“to create a timeless sound and feeling that leaves the listener with the best of both worlds: an album that is contemporary and fresh while at the same time got that distinctive touch of yesterday's heroes! Considering the above it’s obvious that BOMBUS isn’t about re-inventing something that already works, it’s about finding their own sound out of what they love and treasure in each member's record collection. The band is extremely happy with the way the album finally turned out and this definitely marks the next big landmark on BOMBUS way into the hearts of all hard music fans! BOMBUS Dominates!”

‘The Poet And The Parrot’ can be found here (CM Distro Europe), here (CM Distro North America), on iTunes, on Spotify and at EMP's and Amazon's.

BOMBUS features: Matte – guitar and vocals, Feffe – guitar and vocals, Jonas - bass and Peter – drums
