The Black Skeleton is a powerful, melodic rock journey!
Quinn Gardener-Kane has been making what started as a fun journey of writing and recording with other super creative friends, into an emotive rock ‘n roll beast all of its own. The Black Skeleton is a window to the inner thoughts and stories of Quinn’s life experiences; some dark, some haunting, but always personal. The themes and depth of this collection of songs will resonate, provoke and have a different point of resonation with each listen. 
Quinn has sought after, and secured, some of Australia’s most accomplished musicians to assist in the final recordings, and form the live band to showcase these amazing, kick ass songs. Give it a listen and get hooked too.

Quinn Gardener-Kane, the artistic force behind The Black Skeleton, provides a refreshing take on their latest release. Rejecting lofty pretenses,  Kane describes earlier single “The Snake” as a thrilling and unapologetic celebration of rock music. The band’s ability to merge hauntingly familiar elements with an unbridled sense of fun sets them apart in the contemporary music scene. 

The Black Skeleton’s forthcoming album ‘The Rear View’ is released on 11th August on Golden Robot Records.

Track by track: 
New York post-punk mayhem incarnate, Raiser is the sexual tyrannosaurus of The Rear View” album and The Black Skeleton in full flight. The unholiest of unholiness. Enjoy! 
The first single from the forthcoming album, The Rear View,’ ‘Swear’ is about as grunt and as catchy as it gets. Listen to it as loud as your system can handle it. You wont be disappointed. The Black Skeleton is at the wheel and the pedal is to the metal. 
The Rabbit Hole
Gritty, edgy, honest. The Rabbit Hole is one of the earliest tracks completed for The Rear View album and steps away rom traditional rock songwriting into an energy all its own. What we trying new things like to call a “grower”.
Some people deserve the slow cold touch. Play ‘em this one. There’s an homage to one of my favourite movies in here too. I loved working on this one. It started as a completely different outline many years ago. I hope you like it enough to tell someone about it.
The Snake
“The latest release from The Black Skeleton is a hauntingly familiar stadium rock tragedy that tugs on the heartstring and inspires… nah… that’s bullshit.. This new track, The Snake, is just a whole mess of rock n roll fun. Get in in ya ears!”
The Rear View
When you don’t like what you see, re-invent it. This is a track about reclaiming the person you were always meant to be. Put everything about the past you dislike in the rear view and head toward the sun.
Puppy Run
“Most of my lyrics are constructed of metaphors – this is the exception. Puppy Run is all about a dog I had that just wanted to run until he couldnt go on any longer. Hed wait or me to finish work and be ready and off wed go. Its all he wanted to do aside from lick his deck and eat. Best dog I ever had.
Jaded Ways
“Relationship gone stale? Flip it, exit and get busy being happy!
This is a piece of music that I’m really happy with exactly how it is. It was a bunch of fun to create and I hope it sends an energy of looking forward through you as it does me.
How do you know when enough is enough? As soon as someone asks the question. “Change”, the 2023 version, is about as close as it gets to the truth of romantic love – it never lasts.
