Press release:

 

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of BULLETBOYS to the label for a new album to be released in the last part of 2016!

BULLETBOYS formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles hard rock movement. With record companies constantly searching for new talent, they possessed a pedigree that most bands would kill for. Unlike the other rockers of the day, the BulletBoys were more hard rock and blues fusion than pure hair metal. Using their credentials, they were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world while frontman Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of Aerosmith and especially Van Halen, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract.

With a debut album, produced by none other than Ted Templeman (Van Halen, Montrose) which sported the the smash hit single "Smooth Up in Ya," BulletBoys officially established themselves as the leaders of the then LA rock scene. Constant tours and the support of MTV soon brought the album to platinum status. Two more albums soon followed, “Freakshow” and “Za-Za”.

The band continued to tour and release albums surviving throughout the grunge era and outlasting the nu-metal craze. With 8 more studio albums under their belt, BulletBoys are ready to start again with a new label, feeling stronger than ever!

“We could not be more ecstatic about signing with Frontiers” says Marq Torien. “Thank you to the Executives at the label and Artists Worldwide for believing in our music. We have worked diligently over the past years musically, touring, writing and performing. We are excited to embark on this new venture with Frontiers as our support and really looking forward to releasing our new music with your amazing label. Our new joint is going into a completely new direction musically that has not been heard from us ever. We promise not to disappoint!”

Bulletboys:
Marq Torien, vocals/lead guitar
Nick Rozz, rhythm & lead guitar
Chad MacDonald, Bass
Shawn Duncan, drums & percussion

Holy shit... what's going on at Frontiers? "Enuff Z' Nuff" and "Bulletboys" in two days, both of which feature one original member, and both of whom surely have tiny fanbases these days. Bulletboys' last album was not as bad as it seemed, but they're hardly relevant in the genre anymore... or are they?

Quote 2004 -

 

As good a debut as there is out there. Regardless of any comparisons, this album is a f*cking killer. When 'Hard as a rock' hits you know you're in for a hard rockin' explosion. After that it's a free for all with the naughty, but killer 'Smooth up in ya', my favourite 'Kissin' kitty' (MMM!), the awesome hard rock of 'Hell on my heels' and 'Badlands' and my other fave, the closer 'F#9' with it's awesome solo. Good on 'em for doing a debut without the obligatory ballad! Excellent CD!

 

.......so was it only in later life you became the wimp we all know and love ;):lol:

 

All joking aside (& I am only winding you up Geoff) , I have a vinyl of this album residing somewhere in my loft but with no record player and no cd I have no way of hearing this - honestly cannot remember one thing about it ???? Very weird.

I'll respond for Geoff so he doesn't need to -

 

"this only backs up my theory that I will always rate an excellent rocker over a ballad"

I'm just interested to see how Alessandro Del Vecchio will be involved in this.

:o ...I'll give Marq credit for trying something different, but I'd rather listen to the tune released by the former Bulletboys members (Lies, Deceit & Treachery), which interestingly had a similar song title.

And pretty apparently on purpose. Lies, Deceit, & Treachery release "Devil" as first single and now, new BulletBoys song is called "D-Evil"?? 

:rofl2:

Marq is still a major tool.

Not bad. Just not great though either.

Similar to the previous song, not a terrible song but not a great one. I do kinda like it, but it does not wow me.

I think the album will be ok, but not sure I will rush to buy it on release day.

Yeah mate, you're speaking a lot of sense in this thread. They are three absolute shithouse songs.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
