Alcatrazz releases first song from new album in 30 years

Graham Bonnet‘s band Alcatrazz will release a new album after 30 years. One of the greatest hard rock bands from the 80s is back with three founding members: Graham Bonnet, Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea. The new album will be called “Born Innocent”. The first one since Dangerous Games (1986).


About Alcatrazz new album, Graham Bonnet said:

“The name Alcatrazz is a brand name. People know what Alcatrazz delivers, and on this album you have the original ideas of Alcatrazz but played in a modern way with new inspiration.”

The work also has guest appearances of Chris Impellitteri, Bob Kulick, Steve Vai, Nozomu Wakai, Dario Mollo, Don Van Stavern, D. Kendall Jones and Jeff Waters.

Hear new Alcatrazz song “Polar Bear”:

“Take the song ‘Polar Bear. I heard those words ‘polar bear’ and thought it’s an intriguing title because it sounds all cuddly and nice, but it’s not. It’s a story of how when the Eskimo got too old, they would take their lives by sitting in snow, freezing to death and letting the polar bear take the body. The polar bear was very prominent in their lives as a God and also as a way of committing suicide, which is kind of awful. But when an Eskimo loses all his teeth and he could no longer eat, he would lose his strength obviously and then become a weak old man. He could no longer contribute to the tribe, he’d feel his life was useless and so he’d walk out into the snow and sacrifice himself to the bear.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
