About the single, keyboardist/vocalist Oobliette Sparks stated:
“Petaluma is about reaching a crossroad and realizing after choosing your path, that no matter how fast you run or how far you go, your past will find a way to catch up to you. How you decide to face it when it does is the only real path to finding absolution.”
The long-awaited third full-length release, which was produced by the band and mixed by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Jeff Rosenstock), will be Tsunami Bomb’s first new LP in 15 years. With ‘The Spine That Binds’, the band has proven that this latest chapter of the band not only embraces their signature style of aggressive pop-punk supplemented by a touch of darkness but has taken it even further. 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, the band disbanded after many member changes in 2005 then reformed at the end of 2015.
This new release has come to life with the return of founding members Dominic Davi (bass/backing vocals), Oobliette Sparks (keyboards/co-lead vocals), and Gabriel Lindeman (drums). They are joined by Kate Jacobi (lead vocals) and Andrew Pohl (guitars/backing vocals). They all combine their skills to create a sound that effortlessly mixes dark musings on the search to find one’s place in an increasingly uncaring world, into unforgettable anthems, calling on you to get up and sing-a-long.
‘The Spine That Binds’ is not asking for your acceptance, it demands it. This album will scratch the itch of all the die-hard fans looking for that familiar sound, but also show a new, angrier and brutally honest side of the band. With the support of Jello Biafra’s legendary punk rock label, Alternative Tentacles Records, Tsunami Bomb has not only heard your call, but they are also ready for the newest chapter to unfold and they are taking us all with them.
