Austin trio Woven Bones has hereby signed with Hardly Art, and now we are going to tell you about it, dammit. Fronted by Andy Bones, the Bones trio has been bonesing around Texas for the past few years. What is bonesing, you ask? Well, you'll just have to ask Andy Bones. Having previously released 7"s with Sweet Rot and Needless, a 12" on Zoo Music, and a full-length on HoZac, Woven Bones will be releasing their next 7" on Hardly Art, with a full-length coming up in 2011. The aforementioned Hardly Art 7" will be sold on their upcoming West coast tour, which is coming up in.. August! THAT'S NEXT WEEK! So clear your schedule and check the tour dates below, which also includes new dates with the Coathangers, PAVEMENT and Frankie Rose & the Outs.

WOVEN BONES LINKS:
Whip up a few cuts in your gritty basement studio, route them through a string between two tin cans, and hope for the best. Loop some steady bouncy drumbeats and whip up a blistering cascade of guitar fuzz to form the perfect washed-out soundtrack to the Chicago garage rock scene.
Radar Eyes is a three-piece grizzly punk group hailing from Chi-Town who have just released their debut self-titled cassette on PlusTapes. This blistering six-song installment is an excellent showcase of their killer hooks and penetrating blanket layers of overdrive.
Radar Eyes is all about hard edges and spiky barbed wire: twin hard driving guitars, muffled bass, and squeaks of distortion tumble into a brutal wall of sound. A whirlwind of resonating riffs face off with lo-fi chanted lyrics. It's a tape that is aggressive and spunky. A no-holds-barred rocker with smugly confident lyrics and frantic percussion.
Particularly notable is the intricate attention to texture and interplay, best demonstrated by the fancy footwork of their dueling guitars: one peppers the mix with plucky notes while the other provides epic crashing chords. It is a sweet harmonious relationship. Or, at least it's as sweet as it gets on a thrasher like this.
Radar Eyes will be playing shows all across Chicago this summer. They just recently released a 7" single on HoZac Records.
