BoneHawk Announce West Coast Tour


Michigan heavy rockers BoneHawk have announced their first tour of the West Coast, set to start July 15 in Chicago as they make their way out and toward Portland, Oregon, before swinging south and back around to finish curiously far away from where they started, in Nashville, Tennessee. They go supporting two new offerings, a Thin Lizzy tribute vinyl and a split with Sweden’s Kingnomad recently released as part of Ripple Music‘s The Second Coming of Heavy series (review pending). They’re keeping good company along the way in Ripple compatriots Blackwülf and the run includes a stop at Summer Spell IV in San Bernadino, where they’ll join The Great Electric Quest, Red Wizard, Desert Suns and others.

Dates and info came down the PR wire:


BoneHawk – West Coast Shows, New Split LP & More!

It is our most devious pleasure to announce Kalamazoo, Michigan’s BoneHawk will be hitting the hot pavement for their first ever, extensive West Coast tour (from July 15-July 30)! This coming on the heels of Hornacious Wax’ release of their “Southbound – a Tribute To Thin Lizzy” 7” EP and Ripple Music’s “The Second Coming of Heavy – Volume III” split LP with Sweden’s Kingnomad.

BoneHawk released their “Albino Rhino” album on vinyl only on Hornacious Wax Records in October 2014 to much acclaim, selling out 2 pressings quickly. The record is on its third pressing of wax and saw worldwide issue on compact disc on Ripple Music in April of this year, garnering new listeners in the process. But the band has toured extensively as of yet (responsibilities can be a bummer sometimes, right?!)…until now! And we’re glad to announce they’re bringing their high energy, fuzzed out, guitar harmony soaked live show to the West Coast this July!

“We’re super stoked that we were able to sell so many copies of ‘Albino Rhino’ on our own,” guitarist Chad Houts said. “But it’s been almost 2 years since we released it, so we’re even more stoked by the ‘Second Coming’ split LP (on Ripple Music) and the Thin Lizzy tribute – both of which have led us to get off our asses and out on the road!”

“We plan on getting out of Michigan a whole lot more through the rest of this year and into next year,” guitarist/vocalist Matt Helt added. “Touring has been a long time coming for us, and we hope to have a new record out next Spring and more touring to go with it.”

The band will have plenty of wax with them on tour (probably most of it in their ears, so speak loudly)! Please follow along with them on all social media, if you’re so inclined (listed below for your convenience).
