Sean Bones, the reggae-influenced rock band featuring former Sam Champion members Sean Sullivan and Ryan Thornton, will release a new two-track digital single. “Rhumba Beat” will arrive on April 13 via Frenchkiss. The single’s b-side is the song “Lets Do Somethin’ Else,” which will premiere early next week. The physical edition of the songs will be available on tour and will come with a ‘zine of art and “randomness put together by Sean.”

“This winter I fought off the nasty weather with a drum machine,” Sullivan said in a statement. “I got this old wooden Hammond thing in the fall, and I’d hide out in my draughty bedroom at night, meditating on tonal beats while winter buried my van and ripped leaves from the trees. After a period of falling asleep to its punchy tick tock on the bedside table, song skeletons started to take shape in my dreams. Specifically a melodic “Latin” setting started to infect my day like all the nose blowers at work. Soon I was sick. And I was coughing in time. I called my brother to come over with his bass and we blasted our new song out the window until the snow started to melt. That’s how I made the spring happen on my street .”
