Bullet released new album


On February 4th Bullet released their new album "Highway Pirates"!

"Highway Pirates" is Bullet's third album, and the follow up to "Heading For The Top" (2006) and "Bite The Bullet" (2008). The album is mixed by Tobias Lindell, who has worked with Swedish rock bands like Europe, Mustasch and Hardcore Superstar. Together with Bullet he has succeeded in creating a sound that is retro and modern at the same time. Hampus Klang’s and Erik Ahlström’s guitar sound is incredibly pure.
Bullet is, and always will be, a band which is to be experienced live – but "Highway Pirates” is an album that completely captures the intense feeling of their live performances.

The new album has received smashing reviews in the media – with album of the month award and highest position on the "Richterskala” section in Germany’s Rock Hard, album of the month award and highest position in the "Soundcheck” section in Sweden Rock Magazine to name a few.

On February 5th a huge releaseparty was held in their hometown Växjö. The releaseparty was totally sold out with almost 1000 people attending, and the band delivered a classic rock show, finishing off with singer Hell Hofer sawing off the arm of a guy playing keyboards. Specially made Bullet beer and hot dogs were served.

In the beginning of January the band headed off on a Scandinavian Tour with 15 dates booked so far, many more are to be added.

In April Bullet will head off on a European tour together with Enforcer. The tour, that starts in April, will see the band perform in Germany, Holland, England, Poland, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.

Bullet hit it big in 2008 with the album "Bite The Bullet” which climbed to position 3 in the Swedish charts which led to Bullet being one of the most booked bands in Sweden the following year. The album was released to nothing but critical praise and an ever growing crowd of followers. The success culminated when they made an acclaimed performance as support act to AC/DC at a sold out Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden.
