Bony Macaroni have released “Grind Me Into The Paste“, their emotionally raw second single on Redfield Records. After exploring the rock bottoms of love relationships with their previous single, “Hollow”, the Dutch newcomers are now striking with an anti-capitalistic, punk-infused emo pop song that is about “the shittiest fucking job” that singer Stefan Bonestroo ever had: Working in a chicken slaughterhouse. Listen to it now below.
“There’s the cruelty of killing innocent animals for food, but there was also the cruelty of grinding away in a cold-ass factory for insanely low wages while your brain feels like it is slowly dying,” Bonestroo explained. “I still vividly remember the 16-year-old me biking to work, seeing trucks full of weeks-old chickens parked out in the blazing hot sun, knowing full well I would be packing their wings and breasts in boxes later that day.”
Slowly but surely Bony Macaroni are revealing that they’re not just an emo band that’s whining about the loss of love (even though they’re great at that, too), their upcoming record is also about losing money, and losing a sense of purpose while everything is around you seems to be in a constant state of decay. “But worry not”, Bonestroo reassures. “BONY MACARONI are here to make decay sexy and infectious.”
