Its hard to believe that its nearly been three years since BONAFIDE´s last full length offering “Something’s Dripping” was first released
Above all, BONAFIDE has been building an ever growing audience all over Europe by constant touring. 2 long European tours, covering 12 countries, headlining and as support. Add to this, the countless festival appearances and week long tours of Spain and the UK and it can be easily seen, that these boys are Rock n Roll Road Rats on the up.. Quite simply, BONAFIDE is a band that knows, that success and longevity can only be achieved by hard work, which inevitably means non stop touring and keeping it Live.
The third single from that second album was the song “Fill your head with Rock”. A single that actually became an EP of unreleased songs and videos that raced to number 1 in the Swedish Mid-price chart and gave BONAFIDE a spot among the top songs of 2011 on Classic Rock Magazine’s annual list! A successful UK tour followed, culminating in a show at Islington O2 Academy in London.
2012 marks the year of “ULTIMATE REBEL”. An album packed with loud, energetic yet melodic hard rock, firmly rooted in heavy electric blues and steaming hot old school r´n´b.
The first single “Doing the Pretty” has already been A listed and on continued heavy rotation on several European radio stations The main album release will be supported by a second single / video, which will be released prior to the album, early August 2012.
This hotly tipped monster of an album, was recorded during two hectic weeks in engineer Conny Wall´s Gig Studio’s in Stockholm in February, and was produced by band front man and main songwriter Pontus Snibb.
This Summer,.. BONAFIDE have just played to a record breaking audience of over 10K on Sweden Rock Festival’s Zeppelin stage, and will continue to play festivals and clubs, doing their outstanding live shows in both Scandinavia and the UK before heading out on yet another European tour this fall.
“ULTIMATE REBEL” is out August 15 2012. For full details go to www.offyerrocka.com
