HOLLYWOOD, CA (May 11, 2015) – The BULLETBOYS are back and ready to tear the house down with their new MASSIVE release ELEFANTE on Cleopatra/Deadline Records, June 9th 2015. This long awaited album shows that the BULLETBOYS are unstoppable with their grinding hard rock. Singer Marq Torien's vocals hit every note with the power that is his trademark. “Can't wait for our fans to hear this album. I put my heart and soul into this music,” exclaims lead singer Marq Torien. “This album has sick peaks and valleys ... it is NOT a linear album. A straight out labor of love that I've dedicated to my amazing father, all of our Families and our unfaltering BULLETBOYS fans and friends.”
The band consists of founding member Marq Torien (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Nick Rozz (Guitar), Chad MacDonald (Bass) and Shawn Duncan (Drums). All members pouring their heart and soul into the group’s first album of original material since 2009. ELEFANTE was produced by Matt Thorne (Trapt/Disturbed), Marq Torien and engineered by Ryan Greene (Alice Cooper/Lita Ford/Cheap Trick/Usher). The great Anthony Focx (Miley Cyrus/Aerosmith/Santana/Buckcherry) mastered this new work of art. “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!”

House of Lords just premiered a video for the track "Go to Hell." The band's new album, Indestructible, comes out June 7th via Frontiers. House of Lords isn't a band we usually talk about here... what do you think?

Here's some Def Leppard since my mom let me listen to Hysteria when I was too young to understand what any of the songs meant. All the mothers of my friends at the time were lame and tried to censored what their kids listened to... shortsighted for sure. I can't imagine my life without Def Leppard or Hysteria when I was young!
And here's something really cool: a video of a Def Lep soundcheck from back in 1988. Love seeing Steve Clark at work.

I didn't get to attend M3 last weekend, but YouTube is the next best thing. There really wasn't much buzz online leading up to the event, which is odd, but still. It seems like those who went had a great time. Here's the entire set from the Winery Dogs
Here's "Queen of the Reich" from Queensryche
And of course, some Dokken...
