Screaming Eagles Live at Bonfest

Screaming Eagles will release their new live album ‘Live At Bonfest’ on March 29th 2018. The album will be released on CD and digitally with pre-orders available from March 16th  2018.

‘Live At Bonfest’ captures the bands raw and energetic performance at one of their favourite festivals – the internationally renowned Bonfest Festival in Kirriemuir, Scotland. The performance took place on April 29th 2017 in a year that took the band to France, Germany and all over the UK including performances at Ramblin’ Man Fair and Camden Rocks.

Lead singer Chris Fry says of the new live album “Bonfest was our first show of 2017 and is one of our favourite festivals to play, we were chomping at the bit to get onstage, I think this came across really well in the recording and captures us doing what we do best, warts n’ all as they say, with the help of a few cans of Tennents and the national tipple of Buckfast of course…the spirit of the festival is pure rock n’ roll, it’s the birthplace of Bon Scott after all, with a huge international attendance in a tiny Scottish town. With bands playing on flatbed trucks in the street, Phil Rudd on the bill, what more could you ask for, a special place for sure and a festival we felt privileged to be asked to play”.

The 9-track album spans the bands two albums with a few covers thrown in for good measure.

Live At Bonfest was recorded with the help of Graham Galloway at DD8 Music and mixed and mastered by Frankie McClay at Einstein Studios.

The album is available on CD from www.screamingeagles.bigcartel.com and on all digital platforms.

Screaming Eagles are currently working on their third studio album in N. Ireland.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
