23:30 Bonfire (Germany)
During the most successful period of their career, the much-loved veteran German melodic heavy metal unit Bonfire were one of the most acclaimed international hard rock acts. Formed in the city of Ingolstadt in 1980 under the name Cacumen, the personnel changed over time, with the only permanent member being founder Hans Ziller. The band, which has drawn comparisons to like-minded decibel-pushers like Scorpions, Accept, Whitesnake, and Saxon, released its debut long-player, Don't Touch That Light, in 1986. The group issued three more full-length albums, Fire Works (1987), Point Blank (1989), and Knock Out (1991), before closing up shop for a short period of time in light of the peaking grunge and alt-rock scene. They returned in 1996 with the aptly named Feels Like Comin' Home, followed closely by Rebel Soul (1998) and Fuel to the Flames (1999). The turn of the century saw Bonfire continuing their newfound prolificacy, releasing a string of LPs and concert albums, with highlights arriving via 2003's Free, 2006's Double X (which celebrated their 20th anniversary), and their ambitious 2008 rock opera The Räuber. In 2015, the band released Glorious, their 15th LP, and in 2016 they issued their first double album, Pearls, which featured newly recorded versions of some of their best-loved songs. Byte the Bullet, an album of all-new originals, arrived in 2017, with another new set, Temple of Lies, dropping the following year.
20:00 SWMRS (USA)
SWMRS (formerly "Emily's Army") is an American punk rock band formed in Oakland, California in 2004 by Cole Becker and Joey Armstrong, with Cole's brother Max joining only a few weeks afterwards. They drew on a mix of influences ranging from the Beach Boys to the Ramones to create their own brand of rock and roll. The band added Travis Neumann in 2009, who later left in 2014 due to creative differences. The band released a demo and a string of EPs from 2008 to 2010. They released their first album, Don't Be a Dick, on June 14, 2011. The band's second album, Lost at Seventeen, was released on June 11, 2013. Bassist Sebastian Mueller missed a few shows in 2015 due to college exams and was replaced by drummer Joey Armstrong's brother, Jakob Armstrong, for a few shows. The band's third studio album, and their first under the name SWMRS after dropping their former name, Drive North, was released February 12, 2016, via Uncool Records.
