Long time no update! As you know, Bonafide have a new album out, “Bombo” and Pontus and Niklas are of course busy touring in support of it, currently in the UK together with the Quireboys. Do NOT miss them playing all over Europe this fall, see the tour dates here! Meanwhile bass player Mats is busy recording with Abramis Brama and also touring a bit with Streets Of Mars, who also have an upcoming album with release TBA this fall.
But enough about that!
Here’s our 7″ vinyl split single together with Thalamus – the song is “Hounds Of Hell” featuring Mats Ronander on harmonica. It was originally released on the album “Loud Feathers” but have been remastered for this fine collector’s release on vinyl, and Thalamus contribute a great, unreleased track called “Bruised and Broken Boned“.
We have a few copies left of this, so if you wanna own one of these limited edition 7 inches, you can order by email directly from the band, cost is now 6 € plus shipping. And while you’re at it: we do have a few t-shirts left as well, black with the eagle logo in gold… so if you want that, just ask about availability of your size and save on the shipping! We are currently offering the shirts for 15 € and the full length CD “Loud Feathers” for 12 €.
PS3 would like to thank all that came to Akkurat, and to the other shows this spring, and will now take a little break for most of the summer. Stay tuned to this page and our Facebook for updates!

Thanks to each and everyone who came down to KGB:s anniversary last week! We had a blast and enjoyed very much the company of maestro Conny Bloom (Electric Boys, Hanoi Rocks…) who helped us out with his fabulous Strat work on Love Letter, as you can see below. We will do this once again, but more extensively, at Akkurat on Tuesday the 30th of April (and yes… no excuses, day off on the 1st of May). The first of two sets will start at 20:00, and admission is free as always, which gives you the opportunity to fully enjoy the finest beer selection in all of Sweden – and perhaps buy a CD and t-shirt or two.
First off, we’re playing Gävle on the 30th of March. The venue is Harry’s, and the event is hosted by Dirty Harry’s and GHK, Gefle Hårdrocksklubb.
We’re also playing Heakrogen in Mockfjärd on the 20th of April, along with Thalamus. This is a celebration of the release of our vinyl 7″ split single, by Transubstans.
KGB, 10th of Jan 2013: “Love Letter”, from Loud Feathers (2012) and Snibb (2002)
