Rockshots RecordsÂ is proud to announce their signing of dirty rockersÂ Bad BonesÂ for the release of their sixth albumÂ “Hasta El Final!”Â on March 17th, 2023.
Influenced by NWOBHM to the LA street rock scene,Â Bad BonesÂ was formed in 2007. The band has made a name for themselves with tours across Europe along with making the move from Italy to LA in 2009 to make a foothold in the USA until returning to their home country in 2010. Over the years, the band has consistently toured the USA and Europe with appearances at events such as the Hollywood Rock Convention, Italian Gods of Metal, and Metalitalia Festival along with supporting bands like Steel Panther, Hardcore Superstar, Crucified Barbara, Entombed, Gotthard, Crazy Lixx, Strana Officina and more.
True Metal Magazine namedÂ “Bad Bones”Â the Best Hard Rock band of the year for 2010 along withÂ Metal Hammer ItalyÂ awarding “Demolition Derby” the Best Album of The Year for 2016.
A musical amalgamation of blues, punk, classic rock, and heavy metal,Â Bad Bones’Â latest offeringÂ “Hasta El Final!”Â is a powerful record, that shakes your bones and must be listened to in one go, in its entirety, just like taking a shot of whiskey, throw it down and then enjoy it while it warms your guts.
“Hasta El Final! hits you like a punch in the face, we thought it like this, compact and powerful, we didn’t use samples, nor quantized/triggered fake drums, everything was played live, even the overdubs were kept to a minimum, and we wanted to keep the fierce spirit of our first albums.”Â adds the band.
Making uncompromising rock that is meant to be loud in volume and make ya sweat in the pit,Â Bad BonesÂ give listeners classic old-school rock n’ roll fun. Their lyrics reflect the things they see and hear, from memories, and life experiences, but also from movies or places they’ve been, there have many sources of inspiration that fans can clearly relate to.
Today, they share the first singleÂ “Bandits”, a song that hammers fast, between Motorhead and Iron Maiden, to sum up street life and bad intentions in the alleys of a big city.

âRough, Rude, dirtyâ¦ simply irresistible!!! Bad Bones know how to Rock !!â – Metal Maniac
âBad Bones are on a mission for the god of rockânâroll!â -Rockandmetalinmyblood.it
âBad Bones have harnessed all the great sounds of the 80âs and brought it into the present. These guys just have that element that instantly grabs people and gets you going. They have the high gain distorted guitar sound with catchy riffs full of hard rock and blues. The leads are flashy and tight as well. They have a great rhythm section and every song is packed full of melody. They have a sound that is reminiscent of Trixter, Whitesnake, Def Leppard and Mr. Big, This album is 100% awesome form start to finish. Demolition Derby is already top of my play list and with one listen it will be on the top of yours. âThe Dirty Room – USA)
âBad Bones liefert sauber eingespielten, klassischen Hardrock amerikanischer Art. Knackige Gitarren, solider halbhoher Gesang, satter Groove und dieser nicht unerhebliche 80er-Touch sorgen fÃ¼r Stimmung sowie GefÃ¼hlswallungen in Richtung Sunset Strip. Man kann die Herren getrost zwischen rockigen Trixter, Hardline, Firehouse und Whitesnake platzieren â und selbst dann findet sich immer noch die eine oder andere Truppe, die man ebenfalls mit dem Stil der Italiener in Verbindung bringen kÃ¶nnteâ – Classic Rock Deutschland
” … Over the years, the Bad Bones have become the nicest thing of hard rock of our country” – Simone Sacco – Metal Hammer Italyâ
