Much water has passed under the bridge since BONAFIDE last full length offering “Something´s Dripping”, released late 2009.
Above all, BONAFIDE has been building an ever growing audience all over Europe by constant touring. 2 long European tours, covering 12 countries, both on their own and as support. Add to this countless of festival appearances and week long tours of Spain and the UK. In other words if anything BONAFIDE is a band that knows that success and longivety can only be achieved by hard work. And hard work for a rock band means being on the road, doing what rock bands should do: Play 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 video´s that raced to number 1 in the Swedish Mid-price chart and gave BONAFIDE a place 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.
At last “ULTIMATE REBEL” is here. 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” is already on heavy rotation on several European radio stations, and a second single / video will be released prior to the album, early August 2012.
The album was recorded during two hectic weeks in engineer Conny Wall´s Gig Studio´s in Stockholm in February, and was produced by band frontman and main songwriter Pontus Snibb.
Summer 2012: BONAFIDE has just played to a record breaking audience of between 8 and 10 thousand people on Sweden Rock Festival´s Zeppelin stage, and will continue to play festivals and clubs in Scandinavia and the UK before heading out on yet another European tour.
ULTIMATE REBEL is out August 15 2012
