The Graham Bonnet Band have finalized their touring and recording line-up with the addition of Mark Zonder on drums.
The band is now comprised of:
Graham Bonnet - Vocals

The first release from the band will be a 2 song E.P. titled "My Kingdom Come" , The title track being written by none other than Russ Ballard, who has had a long association with Graham dating back to Rainbow's "Down To Earth" (Since You've Been Gone) and Graham's own "Line-Up" solo outing from 1981 (S.O.S, Liar)
Graham says: "It's really great to have Russ contribute a song on our first release as a new band , I have a great history with him, having recorded several of his songs for bands and projects i have been involved in over the years".
Additionally track features renowned progressive rock/metal drummer Mark Zonder (Warlord/ex-Fates Warning) performing all drum duties.
The other track on offer, a full original band composition titled "The Mirror Lies", is a powerful song that will certainly please fans of Graham's celebrated career in hard rock.
The E.P. (mixed and mastered by Alessandro Del Vecchio) will be released in time for the Japanese tour the band are undertaking this coming June with Michael Schenker's 'Temple of Rock'.
And as a special treat for fans of Graham and Michael's 1982 M.S.G. release "Assault Attack", Graham will be joining Michael's band for a song or two from that album on each date of the tour.
Graham adds : "We know that this record holds a very special place for many fans, especially in Japan , so this will make the debut shows of the new band even more special"
