GRAHAM BONNET BAND To Film Documentary On U.K. Tour
January 8, 2016
Canada's The Metal Voice will film a documentary diary on the GRAHAM BONNET BAND's U.K. tour. Titled "All Day And Night Long", the documentary will be shot starting on January 22 at the band's warm-up gig at this year's NAMM convention in Southern California and ending on February 2.
The Metal Voice producer Jimmy Kay stated: "We are very excited to work with legendary singer Graham Bonnet and his team.
"The video will be a first-person account, including the fanatic fans, the encounters, the interactions, the hotels, the behind the scenes and the joy of playing live."
GRAHAM BONNET BAND's "The Mirror Lies" video can be seen below. The song is taken from the group's two-song single titled "My Kingdom Come", which came out last summer. The single's title track was written by none other than Russ Ballard, who previously collaborated with Graham on such hit singles as RAINBOW's "Since You've Been Gone" and on Graham's solo album "Line-up" from 1981. This collaboration marked the first time the two have worked together since 1990 (FORCEFIELD's "Let The Wild Run Free").
Currently making preparations for a February tour in the U.K., the GRAHAM BONNET BAND is a four-piece hard rock outfit led by Graham Bonnet, the former singer of RAINBOW, ALCATRAZZ, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP and IMPELLITTERI.
The lineup is rounded out by guitarist extraordinaire Conrado Pesinato, bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone and former FATES WARNING and WARLORD drummer Mark Zonder.
During the upcoming tour, the band will showcase many acclaimed songs spanning Bonnet's illustrious career, plus new compositions from the band’s forthcoming, as-yet-untitled studio album.
Bonnet said: "It has been a while since I last released a full-length album, but this band is the perfect group of musicians to do just that.
"We are very excited about working with the great folks at Frontiers for our first 'GRAHAM BONNET BAND record. We look forward to a productive and exciting 2016!"
GRAHAM BONNET BAND's new album, which will be made available later in the year via Frontiers Music Srl, will also include a bonus disc of brand new recordings of classic songs from the Graham Bonnet repertoire.
Graham Bonnet's authorized biography, titled "Graham Bonnet: The Story Behind The Shades", is tentatively due in early 2016.
