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 4th studio album
“Dirty Photographs” with LA based Alive Natural Sound
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 McMullans
heavy metal drumming style the band has become
Europe's top alternative blues act.
2018 saw the band team up again with LA based label
Alive Naturalsound to release their 4th studio album “Dirty
Photographs”. Their best recorded work so far they toured
heavily in support of the release starting in April with a
monster 3 week and 9000km European tour which saw
them play in Eastern Europe for the first time.
The Bonnevilles first album “Good Suit & Fightin’ Boots”
released on Motor Sounds Records in 2009 was reissued
on vinyl for the first time by Norwegian based Blues For
The Red Sun Records and in November the boys did a full
Finland and Norway tour in January 2019 to support this
release. This was then followed by a full UK tour in May,
Croatia in June and Norway December 2019. Due to the
pandemic they had to put tours on hold for 18 months and
they will be continuing to support the release of their new
album Dirty Photographs and their reissues of Good Suits
and their first ever EP Hardtale Lurgan Blues on vinyl for
the first time throughout 2021 and 2022.
