Bulletboys, one of the premier hair metal bands that emerged out of the LA metal scene during the mid to late 1980’s, with chart topping hits such as “Smooth Up In Ya” and “For The Love Of Money“. Taking us back to a time when music videos ruled the day and MTV actually played them.
The original founding member Marq Torien has teamed up with a very talented group of musicians, guitarist Nick Rozz, Bassist Chad MacDonald and Shawn Duncan on drums to release Bulletboys first studio album since 2009, with a completely modern hard rock feel. The album, “Elefante‘” was released in June packed with powerful guitar riffs and dynamic vocals. The album has a somewhat heavy folkish tone, with a high energy, feel good party riff that makes you want to get up and move. It maybe important to mention, this album is not a 80’s metal remake, the effort and production quality is outstanding and has an entirely modern sound. Guaranteed to appeal to an entirely new generation of fans as well as providing a fresh; new sound for the previous generation of fans.
Bulletboys have already begun a national US tour in support of the new album and ZTPMAG had was able to catch a live performance recently in Sandusky, OH during “Ohio Bike Week“. The set was extremely energetic and vigorous, jumping all over the stage, pulling out aggressive guitar solos, wide ranging vocals, and a powerful rhythm. The audience was equally enthralled with the excitement of the moment and the entire set list, which included several classic hits as well as a solid taste of some of the new material.
Bulletboys will be joined in July by Tracii Guns (LA GUNS) and a Swedish rock band called KILLER BEE featuring guitarist Paul Chapman from U.F.O. for the Armed Alliance Tour. Be sure to check out the band links below for more tour info, dates, VIP packages and meet and greet opportunities near you.
