Ink Bomb Drop Music Video “Human Remains”

Ink Bomb

The Dutch melodic punk rock band Ink Bomb is releasing a new song today: Human Remains. The song consists of melancholic verses and explosive choruses, typical for the four piece that is increasingly following their own path. With the accompanying beautiful, almost film-noir like, true crime video the band presents the first single from their upcoming second album.

Human Remains is about a broken relationship told through a metaphor of a murder. “Love is dead, but the corpse is still warm,” singer Joost Hoedemaeckers explains. The song has a classic song structure and illustrates that Ink Bomb has developed their sound further, but meanwhile has remained loyal to their formula melody + melancholy. With relatively quiet verses that almost sound like new wave, catchy choruses and a heavy bridge, Human Remains shows Ink Bomb in all their facets.

Human Remains is the first track from an upcoming album. At the moment they are still working hard on completing this second full-length. Guitarist Quirijn Foeken, who is responsible for the recordings at his own Fiction Studio: “We wrote our first album Fiction in two years and then recorded everything. Now we alternate: we write a couple of songs and record these. After that, we focus on another couple of songs. That’s not only faster but also makes the album better. We keep each other sharp by getting the best out of short recording sessions.”

For the music video, Ink Bomb worked together with Edwin Willemsen from Ambivalent Aardvark Productions. Willemsen is also known as the singer-guitarist of the punk band Circle of Friends.

When the members of the Nijmegen melodic punk band Ink Bomb stepped in their practice space for the first time in 2015, they were complete strangers to each other. Fast forward a few years later and the band has toured several countries and released a split (2021), a full album (2019) and two EPs (2017, 2016). They shared stages with bands like The Toy Dolls, SNFU, The Last Gang, I Against I, MakeWar and Martha.
Ink Bomb is currently writing and recording their second album. These new songs again feature the band’s trademark: fast, aggressive songs that don’t always follow the standard song structure or punk rock clichés, but always features great melodies with a healthy dose of melancholy. The band is reminiscent of bands like Bad Religion, No Fun At All and Pears. They love playing live and in 2022 the band played many shows, including the prestigious Valkhof Festival in their hometown Nijmegen, Jera on Air, Haltpop and a UK tour.
