The Contortionist To Release New EP “Our Bones” In August, Premiere “Early Grave” Music Video

The Contortionist have announced that they will be releasing a new EP titled “Our Bones“ on August 9. The effort will come with four tracks including: “Follow,” “Early Grave,” “All Grey,” and a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979.” You can find an official video for “Early Grave” below. Michael Lessard said the following about the EP:

“We try to do something different with everything we create. With our albums, we tend to work with overarching interconnected themes. ‘Our Bones‘ is a departure. It offered an opportunity to dive into some things we haven’t had a chance to explore, and the shorter EP format allowed us to be hyper-focused on each song.”
