BONFIRE to release new album "Temple Of Lies" on April 13th!

Bonfire's trademarks are and have always been deeply melodic hard rock songs, driven by captivating guitars, grooving rhythms and haunting vocal melodies. All the features that came together so perfectly on their most popular releases Fireworks (1987), Point Blank (1989) and Branded (2011) are present on their current release Temple Of Lies.

Thanks to their new vocalist Alexx Stahl, who joined the fold two years ago, and a first-rate line-up on all instruments, the band's creativity explodes on Temple Of Lies and is bound to wow a younger generation of rock music fans, too.

Hans Ziller: "With this line-up, we'll be able to increase the hardness level of our material whenever we feel like it. Numbers such as 'Temple Of Lies' and 'Stand Or Fall' wouldn't have been possible with previous line-ups."

It's not only the occasionally tougher pace that impresses on Temple Of Lies (produced by Hans Ziller at the Flatliners Recording Studios in Ingolstadt) from the first to the very last note, but also the album's diverse high-quality songwriting in general.

BONFIRE sign with AFM Records!

After BONFIRE's latest studio records "Glörious" (2015) and "Byte The Bullet" (2017) - both made it to the Top 50 of the German album chart - and more than 160 live shows played in the last two years, AFM Records and BONFIRE decided to strike a new path together!

During the more than 30 year-long history of the band, there were of course several different label partners releasing BONFIRE's 16 studio records and some were not available at times. So in Autumn of 2017, big parts of BONFIRE's back catalogue will be made available again before the new album will be released in Spring 2018.

Besides being in the studio to record their next record, BONFIRE will be on tour for the rest of the year!

New CD: BONFIRE "Byte The Bullet"

With their heavy touring schedule, over 80 shows in 2016, BONFIRE at the same time recorded their new album "Byte the Bullet" (UDR-Music / Warner Bros) at Flatliners studios in their hometown Ingolstadt, Germany.

"Byte the Bullet" is set to be released on March 24, 2017 with 12 rocking new tracks plus two additional bonus tracks. With the incredible new line-up "Byte the Bullet" will prove to be an outstanding album.

IRON MAIDEN have their 747 to travel.... but we have our Locomotive for our fans!

There is probably no band worldwide and no artist who can call a locomotive "own". The cooperation with the Stauden-Verkehrs-Gesellschaft and the BBG has made this possible. This locomotive is not a museum piece, but is active in local and long-distance transport. The power of 1,600 Maybach-PS meets the power of BONFIRE!

Virgin ride of the BONFIRE Lok

On the 20th of January, the locomotive went on her virgin ride from Augsburg to Munich and Ingolstadt and back.
During the ride the worlds first album listening session in a rolling band-train took place in South-Germany! BONFIRE presented their new album "Byte The Bullet" (in stores 24th March 2017) to 138 fans and music journalists from all over Germany (even some fans from England were there).

It was an amazing 7-hour party and a great experience!
There was the chance to meet the hardrockers personally, to take photos with them or to fulfill autograph wishes. With drinks and fingerfood the participants of the virgin ride were well supplied, there was even the possibility to have a look at the driver's house of the locomotive. Every guest got a free Shirt and a free CD as a souvenir.

Thanks to all the fans, media partners and the Staudenbahn AG Augsburg who made this fantastic event possible!
