Shooting From the Hip with BULLETBOYS

“It’s been received ridiculously well,” enthused Bulletboys frontman and founding member Marq Torien on the Los Angeles rock machines 12th album, From Out of the Skies. “People are ecstatic about it. I’ve been getting so many amazing interviews and reviews which is great because we took some risks on this record…”

Bulletboys will be in Australia for the first time ever next month, a fact made even more surprising by the fact they have been a band since 1987, with Torien warning fans to brace themselves for a musical onslaught.

“You can expect anything and everything,” he promised. “We’re a bunch of naughty gentlemen (laughs). Please don’t fear the villains because we’re fun-loving villains and we’re coming out there to turn it up to 15. We’re a monstrously energetic band so get ready to see a real rock band perform. We also play extremely loud so please bring your earplugs.”

One thing with a band making their debut appearance on our shores is we don’t know exactly what to expect, but that also works in reverse.

Direct Underground – Leaderboard

“No we don’t really,” laughed Torien, “so we’re looking forward to it. I have so much love for your country and the people are just amazing and passionate. I can’t wait to get out there and show what this little band from Southern California can do and blow the roof off the places we’re playing!”

To find out exactly what risks Bulletboys took on their new album, plus the complexities of trying to outdo yourself musically with each record as well as an insight into recording with Dave Grohl plus a look into the history of this underrated band tune into the audio.

Starting work for Barfly in Cairns and then Time Out at the Cairns Post, Kris always found his taste in music a little too eclectic for the mainstream market but has found his niche writing for Heavy with its heavier content suiting his writing style and passion. Based in Brisbane, Kris also runs a promotions company, KSP Productions, and currently manages a number of Australian bands. If you see him at a gig he loves Chartreuse so buy him a drink and have a chat about music. His knowledge is only superseded by his ability to spin a good tale.
