Swedish hard rockers Bonafide are back with a vengeance. Bombo (Released through Off Yer Rocka Recordings September 1), a Pulp Fiction style tale of rock’n’roll debauchery over 10 chapters, sees the band return to the in your face, crotch kicking sound of their first three albums.
The first single release from the album; “Harmony”, witnesses Bonafide bringing down the tempo slightly but still holding true, the Bonafide hooks and shredding skills throughout its production. “Harmony” is a perfect example of Pontus’ quite eclectic, yet very blues / r’n’b oriented songwriting and will be sure to be a popular addition to most radio play lists over the course of the year.
Since their formation in Malmö, Sweden late 2006, Bonafide has grown to be one of Sweden’s most popular and hardest working rock bands.
Singer and front man Pontus Snibb got the band together in an urge to play loud and raunchy hard rock true to it’s roots in the electric blues and early R’n’B.
Bonafide spends most of their time on the road throughout Europe, constantly building an ever growing fan base all over the continent. Their two latest albums have both secured the number One slot in the Swedish rock chart, and besides playing clubs on their own, they have supported bands such as Deep Purple, Europe and Status Quo only to name a few.
Two of their singles, “Doing the Pretty” and “Fill your head with Rock” was among the top tracks in Classic Rock Magazines “Top Tracks of the Year” in both 2011 and 2012!
Bonafide will tour extensively in 2013. As special guests to the Quireboys, they begin a full scale World Tour in Bristol (UK) on October 6 that will take the band throughout Europe and beyond.
