“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.
“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!”
