Northern California’s punk rock cult favorites Tsunami Bomb are back with their first new LP in 15 years, “The Spine That Binds”.
The LP, which was produced by the band and mixed by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Jeff Rosenstock), will be released on November 8th via Alternative Tentacles.
Keyboardist/vocalist Oobliette Sparks told Kerrang!, “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 Spine That Binds” will be released digitally and on limited edition colored vinyl.

With the long-awaited third full-length release, ‘The Spine That Binds,’ Tsunami Bomb have 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, and disbanding after many member changes in 2005, Tsunami Bomb reformed at the end of 2015.
This new release finds the quintet brought to life with the return of founders Dominic Davi bass/backing vocals, Oobliette Sparks keyboards/co-lead vocals, and Gabriel Lindeman drums. Joined by Kate Jacobi lead vocals and Andrew Pohl guitars/backing vocals.
