Aside from a few festival appearances and comps or re-releases, California’s Tsunami Bomb have been relatively quiet since they officially broke up in 2005. Their last album, The Definitive Act, came out in 2004 right before the last founding member left the band, but today they’ve announced a brand new LP out November 8th on Alternative Tentacles. The Spine That Binds sees the official return of Tsunami Bomb veterans Dominic Davi on bass and backing vocals, Oobliette Sparks on keys and vocals, and Gabriel Lindeman on drums, and also features a couple of new additions in lead vocalist Kate Jacobi and guitarist/backing vocalist Andrew Pohl. Trsunami Bomb are also currently streaming the first single off the new LP, “The Hathors”.
“The story of ‘The Hathors’ is haunting and sad as much as defiant,” says lead vocalist Kate Jacobi. “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.”
