San Fransisco thrash metallers Vio-lence have released their first new music in 29 years with new single Flesh From Bone.

Released via Metal Blade Records, the track arrives ahead of the Bay Area quintet's forthcoming EP, Let the World Burn – due March 4 – and finds Sean Killian and co deploying everything in their thrash arsenal, from frantic palm-muted electric guitar riffs courtesy of Phil Demmel and Bobby Gustafson to monstrous vocals from Killian.
