A theatrical work of art, Bedlam by Mr. Bones and The Boneyard Circus takes us to a dark self-discovery adventure.
Just before they release their next album, Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus teases us with a new single. Bedlam is their new single straight off of their upcoming 3rd album, “The Grand Phantasma”. And this time, they kick it up a notch with an accompanying animation lyric video!
Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus is known for their horror-inspired sound and visuals. For a local rock band, they’re showing off this unique sound that’s rare to hear in OPM. Lead by Bones Frankenstein on vocals, he brings forth a unique rock ensemble together with “Doc” Alvin Chan and Karl Kliatchko on guitars. In addition to the group are Paige Buan on bass, Karl “Wolf” Vito Cruz on keyboards, Aldreen Alcantara on drums, and Xombie on backing vocals.
Abysmal take on self-discovery
Bedlam is me exploring how the grand monstrosity that was this past riddled with vices led me to understand who I really am
Bedlam isn’t different from their previous tracks. It still has that gothic and eccentric horror aesthetic. But the takeaway in their newest track is the concept originality. According to Mr. Bones himself, Bedlam displays his relationship with his vices. It’s his artistic take on how his self-discovery went.
In the lyric video, it features a girl who found herself trapped in Boner Haus. (It’s not what you think it is!). It’s basically a living mansion with a malevolent Warden who cares of lost souls. However, instead of nurturing them to betterment, the girl suffers, craddled by her turbulent emotions and past.
It’s quite theatrical, giving off a Tim Burton-esque vibe. At the same time, you’ll find yourself relating to the girl. Lost in the world and not knowing where your place should be. It might be a dark take on someone’s self-discovery journey. But despite that, it’s enlightening to know that you’re not the only one feeling muddled up inside.
So be sure to support Bedlam by Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus on Spotify!
