As everybody knows today, the “Fistful Of Fire” album release in 2020 was ill-fated by that worldwide Covid-19 pandemic – store had closed short after the release and the tour had to be postponed and even cancelled in the end. It’s a fact, that the band did not play one single show with their new album to that very day.
However the band from Ingolstadt is trying to looking forward. New plans arouse for an upcoming project. It was summer 2020 when the band again hit the Flatliners Recording Studios to start recording the new longplayer “Roots”, which will be released February 26th. It’s a magnificent “almost unplugged” album with 24 tracks recorded completely over again and interpreted in new ways. It includes very young ballads like “When An Old Man Cries” and old evergreens like “You Make Me Feel”, contains old rock hits like “Ready 4 Reaction” and “American Nights” but also arising rock hymns like “The Devil Made Me Do It”, so every fan of this band will find something on this one. On top of that in features 5 brandnew songs that have been created while a crowdfunding campaign as remittance works for fans.
Today BONFIRE released a brand new single called “Love Don’t Lie”, a song that has been written 2008 for the “The Räuber”, which has been a cooperation between the Theater Ingolstadt and the band – it is their most successful theater piece coop, with 3 seasons, 55 sold-out shows and 50 thousand spectators. The new version of the song, beautifully arranged, comes as a really lovely duet with Alexx Stahl and Lydia Panè, wife of guitarist Frank Panè.
