Merry Xmas from PS3, who have been on a bit of hiatus during much of 2017 – with Pontus and Niklas being busy with Bonafide and Mats with Avatarium, Abramis Brama and however many bands he’s got at the moment. We are celebrating this moment at the famous restaurant here in Chicago which has an incredible aquarium with mail order tropical fish from Oddball!
Next up, Pontus will release his second Wreck Of Blues album on February 21st, titled “Too Late To Die Young“. Single “What Must Be Done” is out now! This will be followed by some Swedish gigs and a UK tour:
Feb 21 – release party show, Folk å Rock, Malmö
Mar 2-3 – Fjellispriset, Victoriateatern, Malmö
Mar 30 – Skillinge Bluesfestival
Apr 11 – The Underworld Camden, London
Apr 12 – The Cluny, Newcastle
Apr 13 – Bannermans Bar, Edinburgh
Apr 14 – The Musician Pub, Leicester
Apr 15 – HRH Blues @ o2 Academy, Sheffield
Mats will be releasing a new album in the spring with Abramis Brama, as well as new project Peace Conspiracy fronted by Meja, and featuring PS3 friend and collaborator Conny Bloom.
Bonafide has also announced an extensive UK tour later in the spring, see below!
Ho ho ho!
Triffid & Danger Concerts present two shows with The Edgar Winter Band in Sweden this fall, and we’re thrilled to open the show at Debaser Medis in Stockholm on Sunday, November 15th!
Winter made his debut in 1970 and has since released mega-sellers They Only Come Out At Night and Jasmine Nightdreams. In 1973, Edgar had a Billboard #1 with the million-selling instrumental classic Frankenstein. His latest album, Rebel Road, was released in 2008.

We just finished a mini-tour with the great Southern Kings – playing Malmö, Halmstad and Höganäs as well as opening at Stampen in Stockholm yet again. Thanks to everyone involved, to Stacie and Al Collins and Micke Fässberg who jammed with us in Malmö, to Pierre and Jonas in Halmstad, all the people at Garage, Breakout and Folk å Rock, Håkan Bladh, and all the people who came to the shows!
Here are a bunch of nice photos from the Malmö show, courtesy of Lars Brundin!
Starting today, Pontus Snibb is once again taking his seat at the drums of Jason and the Scorchers for four UK dates:
22nd of July – Academy 3, Manchester, UK
23rd of July – The Greystones, Sheffield, UK
24th of July – The Musician, Leicester, UK
25th of July – Ramblin’ Man Fair, Maidstone, UK www.ramblinmanfair.com
Then Bonafide has a whole bunch of tour dates which you can check out here…
We’ll most likely also book a number of PS3 shows later in the year, probably including one or two more at Stampen, Stockholm. And looking in some further traveling with the PNW backpack as well. Stay tuned and have a good summer!
Pontus, Mats & Nick
