The Graham Bonnet Band will play four UK shows later this week to promote their well received new album, ‘Day Out In Nowhere’, which was released in May via Frontiers Music Srl. The dates are:
28.07.22 WOLVERHAMPTON KK’s Steelmill
29.07.22 LONDON Boston Music Rooms
30.07.22 EBBW VALE Steelhouse Festival
31.07.22 MANCHESTER Academy 3
‘Day Out In Nowhere’ sees the veteran powerhouse rock vocalist Graham Bonnet joined by his regular bandmates Beth-Ami Heavenstone (bass) and Conrado Pesinato (guitar), along with keyboardist Alessandro Bertoni and drummer Shane Gaalaas, while it also sees guest performance and co-writing appearances from the likes of Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore), John Tempesta (The Cult, White Zombie), Mike Tempesta (Powerman 5000), Roy Z (Halford, Bruce Dickinson) and Don Airey (Deep Purple, Rainbow).
“In a similar way to the first two [GBB] albums, this new record reflects different eras of my career, but with a contemporary twist,” stated Bonnet prior to its release. “I’m delighted to be playing with original band members Beth-Ami Heavenstone, who has been my constant partner on and off stage since we met in 2012, plus Conrado Pesinato, whose innate musical style elicits some of my best songwriting.”
Bonnet is a hard rock legend, with solo offerings and stints with Rainbow, MSG, Alcatrazz and Impellitteri proving that he is one of the finest rock vocalists and songwriters of his generation. From his late 60’s and now into his mid-70’s, he has written and recorded three of the best albums of his career; two regal, rocking yet elegant sounding records with the Graham Bonnet Band, ‘The Book’ (2016) and ‘Meanwhile, Back in the Garage’ (2018), plus a 2020 reunion album with Graham Bonnet’s Alcatrazz entitled ‘Born Innocent’.
