The Bonnevilles Confirm Tour For May/June

The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in a way it hasn't felt since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977. The Bonnevilles don't so much play punk blues as use it as a springboard to create a completely new genre. And now they release their fourth studio album, Dirty Photographs, with LA based Alive Natural Sound Records.

The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill blues and punk rock and mix their own unique dark Northern Irish punk blues stew which drew the attention of the fore mentioned Alive Natural Sound which saw them release the award nominated, Arrow Pierce My Heart, on the label in 2016.

The Bonnevilles formed in 2009 and quickly released their debut, and now legendary, album, Good Suits & Fightin’ Boots, on Motor Sounds Records.  McGibbon being a blues fan was moved to create The Bonnevilles after a brief time in another duo and being heavily inspired by RL Burnsides “ A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey” and bands like The Soledad Brothers, The Immortal Lee County Killers along with blues heavyweights like Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, Chess Records etc., combined with McMullan’s heavy metal drumming style the band has become Europe's top alternative blues act.
