Frontiers Music Srl has announced the signing of the GRAHAM BONNET BAND for the release of a brand new studio album of original songs, tentatively due in early 2016.
Currently making preparations for a February tour in the U.K., the GRAHAM BONNET BAND is a four-piece hard rock outfit led by Graham Bonnet, the former singer of RAINBOW, ALCATRAZZ, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP and IMPELLITTERI.
The lineup is rounded out by guitarist extraordinaire Conrado Pesinato, bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone and former FATES WARNING and WARLORD drummer Mark Zonder.
During the upcoming tour, the band will showcase many acclaimed songs spanning Bonnet’s illustrious career, plus new compositions from the band’s forthcoming, as-yet-untitled studio album.
Bonnet says: “It has been a while since I last released a full-length album, but this band is the perfect group of musicians to do just that.
“We are very excited about working with the great folks at Frontiers for our first ‘GRAHAM BONNET BAND record. We look forward to a productive and exciting 2016!”
The new album will also include a bonus disc of brand new recordings of classic songs from the Graham Bonnet repertoire.
GRAHAM BONNET BAND recently released a two-song single titled “My Kingdom Come”, the title track of which was written by none other than Russ Ballard, who previously collaborated with Graham on such hit singles as RAINBOW’s “Since You’ve Been Gone” and on Graham’s solo album “Line-up” from 1981. This collaboration marked the first time the two have worked together since 1990 (FORCEFIELD’s “Let The Wild Run Free”).
