Bombus: New album "The Poet And The Parrot" out now!
The stunning Century Media debut of Gothenburg's metal heavyweights BOMBUS is out NOW in Europe!
Here is some assorted media praise for the release:
"This is one of the best Swedish albums I've heard in years..." - Kristian Bågefeldt
Close-Up (SWE), 9 out of 10
"The atmospheric textures, plus the band's willingness and ability to avoid any particular pigeonhole, give The Poet And The Parrot a touch of depth and range"
Metal Hammer (UK), 7 out of 10
"An extremely pissed off ride on a Rat Bike through the rotten 'Mad Max'-moderate end scenarios, where mechanically cold aggressiveness hits the groovy roots of rock and roll, punk and metal"
Rock Hard (DE), 8 out of 10, 10x Dynamite, Soundcheck #5
"If Motorhead had a rocking child with Entombed and Venom - it would sound like Bombus"
Metal Hammer (DE), 5 out of 7, Soundcheck #8
"'A Safe Passage', 'Let Her Die', 'Apparatus' or the title song breathe the same spirit as Turbonegro as of Kvelertak"
Spiegel-Online (DE), 8 out of 10
"Perhaps you could also consider extremely pissed Motorhead as reference"
Visions (DE), 8 out of 12
"Bombus sound like Motorhead were swimming in mud. They got the explosives, you got the detonator"
"The Poet And The Parrot" is available now in the following format across Europe:
- Limited Edition Digipak (incl. 2 Bonus Track)
- Standard CD
- Digital Download Version
- 180gr. Gatefold Vinyl (unlimited black version, limited dark-green version)

"Enter The Night": www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_Ejx9WPvec
The band is also proud to announce that they will go out once more as special guest for Danko Jones who invited them to support him in Scandinavia. There is also handful of nice special shows before that and even more important: a full European headliner tour in November/December 2013. The special guest for their headline tour will be announced soon. See dates below.
The guys are psyched about joining Danko Jones on tour again: "Last fall we supported Danko Jones. Last spring we supported Danko Jones. We are happy to announce that his fall, we will go full circle, and support them again, on the third and last leg of their euro tour through-out the Nordic region. Good times ahead!"
