|Bang Bang Romeo have big things planned for this year, their first ever UK headline tour, the release of their debut album, a 16 date European & UK stadium support tour with pop legend P!NK, countless European festivals …. world domination. But before all of that, to get 2019 really started they’ve just unleashed their new single ‘Bag Of Bones’ and the accompanying video.

Filmed in London, the band worked with Trigger Happy’s Dom Joly and Matt Campion to bring the story of ‘Bag Of Bones’ to life. The video follows a woman returning to her childhood bedroom to deal with her personal demons. It tackles gender politics, self-identity and sees the character owning her own androgyny with confidence. With lead singer Stars being a strong and open voice for the LGBTQ+ community the song’s message is one that comes from the heart. The band have been encouraging fans to get involved with this message using their hashtag #somuchmore.
The band commented about the track:
“In a world where we’re told to conform and align ourselves into categories, we say, unapologetically, “no”. To anyone feeling they may not be ‘normal’ in the eyes of today’s society, or feel as though they were just put here to wake up, work, and be this vessel that everyone else wants them to be, we would like to remind you that you are not just a Bag of Bones, you are so much more. ‘Bag of Bones’ is the second offering from our debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy’ out June 14th. The single is also our first release of the year, so to say we’re excited about it is a total understatement. “
Dom Joly commented “I was blown away by Anastasia’s voice when I first heard this track. I loved the fact that this was a rock band fronted by a woman and really wanted to make the video. We kept the company concept pretty simple as the band’s power sort of speaks for itself. It was an easy shoot and I’m a big fan of the band and their sound.”
