The Mess video from Hard Rock Hell

The Mess is single no 3 to be lifted from Swedish rockers Bonafide’s third highly successful album release Ultimate Rebel (Off Yer Rocka Recordings 2012).

Ultimate Rebel went on top of the Swedish rock charts within a week of its release, and has been hailed as one of the top releases of 2012 by rock media all over the world.

The Mess is a dark, mesmerizing rocker with a catchy lead riff, coupled with great guitar work, and an infectious chorus to die for. The Mess is released on the 14th of March 2013 and will be backed up with a live cut from the forthcoming Live DVD release, which will be out shortly. It was recorded at last year’s Hard Rock Hell Festival in Wales, where Bonafide were accompanied on stage by some very raunchy dancers in front of a packed audience, adding some sexual solidarity to the riffage.

Since their last release, Bonafide has continued to play shows all over continental Europe and the UK, and will continue touring the European club and festival circuit throughout 2013.

Expect the unexpected from these rock’n’roll rebels!

2013 will be massive!

Hi y’all!

Long time since we said anything here… been quite busy touring, and then some…

Hope you all had a great new years eve, and look forward to a great 2013 as much as we do!

Songs are being written, plans are being made… 2013 will be massive!

We just heard that Hot Metal Magazine just voted Ultimate Rebel the 2nd best album of 2012 (read the complete list here). Only beaten by the mighty Van Halen and their excellent Different kind of Truth. Thanks!

There’s a vote going on through Rock Fusion in the UK for best band of 2012, and we are nominated among Rival Sons, Gun, The Treatment and others! Make sure you cast your vote – click here.

Wonderful news about tours and a new single & video coming your way soon!

Loads of Love

Happy Holidays!

Hi everybody!

Back home again after some eight weeks of touring. We finished off with a great weekend at the Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales this weekend.
Just as we got home we learned that Doing the Pretty has been voted one of the top tracks of 2012 by UK’s Classic Rock Magazine.
Thank you everybody! This, our third UK tour in less than a year, was a GREAT success!
We’ll soon update the tour section with a bunch of shows for 2013! Stay tuned!

Happy Holidays!

Ultimate Rebel is finally out!

It’s there for you all to enjoy, and we hope you do just that.

10 songs – all rehearsed in hotel rooms, airports, dressing rooms and on tour coaches all over Europe. Recorded during a couple of weeks in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this year.

We sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it.

Making a record nowdays is easy. The hard part is to fund the whole goddamn thing and make it sound true to your original intention. We are lucky. We managed to create something that we can be proud of. Now and forever.

This record is dedicated to ALL of you who bothered to go and see Bonafide in France, Sweden, Germany, UK, Austria, Holland, Czech Republic, Italy, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Spain and Switzerland over the years.

And so the Never Ending Tour Continues… See you soon brothers and sisters.

UK tour over

Just arrived to Sweden again after a fantastic UK tour. The second in less than eight months, and also the second out of three in less than a year!

This time the places were packed, and we even headlined the Cambridge Rock Festival last Saturday.

A big THANK YOU to each and everyone for coming to our shows, and also a big cheers to all the friends in the business who busted arses to get the show on the road, including our friends in support act Silverjet.

See you in November everybody! Now go out and get yourself a copy of the new album Ultimate Rebel! The critics say it’s kind of spectacular…
