The Meligrove Band return with BONES OF THINGS

After a four-year hiatus from touring, Toronto's Meligrove Band return with their strongest album to date, recorded by Jose Contreras (By Divine Right) at his Chicano Power Studio in rural Caledon, Ontario. "Bones of Things" is adventurous and full of catchy melodies you can't get out of your head. It's big and heavy, but it's also pop, and captures the band at its best. 

The new album will see a November 18 release via We Are Busy Bodies, the label that first released the vinyl edition of their breakthrough Planets Conspire album in 2006, and have long been friends and champions of the band. "Bones of Things" will be released on 180g vinyl.

"Equal parts Tin Pan Alley showmanship and spastic, psychedelic freakout" -SPIN
