NORTHERN IRELAND’S THE BONNEVILLES TO RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM “ARROW PIERCE MY HEART” MARCH 18TH VIA ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS!
“Do they serve Guinness in juke joints? If not, they need to start. Coming straight outta Northern Ireland (believe it or not), this guitar-and-drums duo’s third album channels the bare-knuckle blues-rock and garage-punk of the old Fat Possum roster, with nods to early White Stripes, Black Keys, Blues Explosion and countryman Rory Gallagher. On target.” – TORONTO SUN
“Simply a band that needs to be on any rock fans radar regardless of where you stand sub-genre wise, you want to dance and feel like a bad ass at the same time. Spin this record on your turntable and turn it up well past your comfort zone.” – NO DEPRESSION
“The Bonnevilles carry on the tradition of stripped down, blues rock run through with headbanging punk energy.” – POPMATTERS
“The Bonnevilles bring out primal urges in you, but you’ll love every moment.” – THE REVIEW
“Raw and gnarly… don’t be expecting a reel or jig, or Bonoesque bombast; these lads from Northern Ireland look to Chicago and the Deep South for their muse… Turn it up!” – THE BIG TAKEOVER

The Bonnevilles are a Garage Punk Blues duo straight out of Northern Ireland featuring Andrew McGibbon Jr. on vocals & guitar, and drummer Chris McMullan. The twosome will be unveiling their explosive third full-length studio effort Arrow Pierce My Heart later next week.
With two studio albums already under their belt, the band has become one of Europe’s top alternative blues acts, sharing the stage with bands such as Left Lane Cruiser, James Leg, Johnny Walker and Guadalupe Plata, and appearing at both The Deep Blues Fest in Clarksdale, Mississippi and its counterpart in Germany.
Rick Saunders on his Deep Blues blog describes them as “deep, dark punk and stylish hard roots music with good pop-sense and without a whiff of retro poly stink.”
The Bonnevilles’ Arrow Pierce My Heart will be available March 18th on CD, digital and limited edition silver splattered vinyl through Alive Naturalsound Records. Click here to pre-order Arrow Pierce My Heart.
