Pontus Snibb 3 will play Custom Bike Show in Norrtälje on Saturday the 7th of June. The show is at 14:00 in Societetsparken and there will probably be some tasty bits from Pontus new album Wreck of Blues as well as PS3 songs and more…
There were plans for two shows earlier in March this year, but they had to be postponed. We’ll be back with news about that later on. Here’s a short update to what we have been up to:
Bass player Mats has been busy recording a new album with Abramis Brama, Enkel Biljett, which will be released on May 2nd on Transubstans Records. He’s also toured a bit with the band Streets of Mars – who has a new single out called Avenue.
As you know, Pontus and Niklas have been very busy touring with Bonafide since the release of Bombo this fall, and they have an extensive tour of Spain coming up in May. Here are the dates:
The video for opening track and first single was just released today, the song is called More Blues and Blue Sounds, and the video was made by Gustav Kronfelt, who also did Bonafide’s Rock’n’Roll Skål.
This band is also a trio and also features former Bonafide bass player, and long time blues buddy Micke Nilsson on the bass, and Pontus’ father Håkan Nyberg (also in Nationalteatern) on the drums. The album was recorded in Lemon Studios in Klippan, Sweden by (current Bonafide bass player) Martin Ekelund early this year in just a few days, almost entirely live. Here’s the album sleeve!
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. Follow Bonafide’s tour blog hosted by Rocknytt (in Swedish) and 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!

The tour kicks off on Friday the 17th of May at Red River Saloon in Heilbronn, Germany and finishes up on the 15th of June at the Alta Soul & Blues Festival in Alta, Norway.
It also includes a stop at the Sweden Rock Festival (Wed 5th of June at 16:20, Sweden Stage) where also Mats and Niklas will play with their band Backdraft (Thu 6th of June at 17:45, 4Sound Stage).
