Buffalo Tom surprised fans this week with Bones, a free acoustic EP released exclusively via their website http://www.buffalotom.com. The short-player features four songs, including two Buffalo Tom favorites and a rendition of "Arise, Watch," the lead track from the band's upcoming eighth LP, Skins. The digital-only release also includes a rousing cover of New Order's "Age Of Consent."

In addition to offering a free download, the band's website also features in-studio video performances from the Bones recording sessions at Q Division in Boston, and a live rendition of "Age Of Consent" from a recent performance at The Paradise. All video was shot by Michael Gill, and offers a unique and intimate glimpse at a seminal act in their element.
