Latest Bulletboys News
Below is our complete Bulletboys news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The Bulletboys will embark on a national tour starting with some key headline dates in June before being joined by LA Guns with Tracii Guns for the first leg of the Armed Alliance Tour. VIP ticket packages are available here.
The band consists of founding member Marq Torien (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Nick Rozz (Guitar), Chad MacDonald (Bass) and Shawn Duncan (Drums), with all members pouring their heart and soul into the group’s first album of original material since 2009 - "Elefante."
The album was produced by Matt Thorne (Trapt/Disturbed) and Marq Torien and engineered by Ryan Greene (Alice Cooper/Lita Ford/Cheap Trick/Usher), with Anthony Focx (Miley Cyrus/Aerosmith/Santana/Buckcherry) handling mastering.
“Working with the Bulletboys was an amazing experience,” explains Ryan Greene. “Most singers, from back in the 80's, were pretty good but I will tell you Marq knocked it out of the park on this record. His power and passion was second to none and he can sing in tune! No auto-tune needed, he's the real freak’n deal. If you think for a second this is going to be some rehashed 80's record you are completely wrong!”
