Bonafide to release new album ‘Are You Listening?’ on October 27th
Big news from the Bonafide camp as the Swedish rockers consisting of frontman Pontus Snibb, drummer Niklas Matsson, bassist Martin Ekelund and guitarist Anders Rosell will be releasing their first studio album since 2017’s Flames. Bonafide‘s new studio album is titled Are You Listening? and will be released on October 27, 2023.
The group’s discography consists of Bonafide (2007), Something’s Dripping (2009), Fill Your Head With Rock – Old, New, Tried & True EP (2011), Ultimate Rebel (2012), Bombo (2013), Denim Devils (2015), Flames (2017) and Live at KB (2019).
Bonafide‘s sophomore album Something’s Dripping landed the #2 position on Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2009 to which Sleaze Roxx stated:
“While things were quiet on the Airbourne front as they wrote new material, someone had to step into their shoes in 2009 and Bonafide did just that. Truth be told, this Swedish four piece probably has more commercial appeal than even the Aussies do. On Something’s Dripping they managed to meld AC/DC riffs with a heavy dose of attitude and created the ultimate shit-kicking rock album. Bonafide were able to walk the fine line between being too heavy for the mainstream and too soft for headbangers, landing right down the middle for an incredible sonic assault.”
