Bonfire management have announced the following:
Because of the sudden departure and separation of David Reece after two very successful charting CDs GLÖRIOUS & the double album PEARLS the place of the lead vocalist and front man of BONFIRE became vacant.
Originally BONFIRE found a new shouter in Michael Bormann, however, prior obligations kept him from starting his duties with Bonfire until mid-October 2016.
As so-called “transition singer” ALEXX STEEL (MASTERS OF DISGUISE, ROXXCALIBUR) spontaneously offered his help so BONFIRE were able to play the agreed 16 summer events .
ALEXX STAHL used this time and concerts in order to sing himself into the hearts of the fans and the band members.
BONFIRE knew that he was a great musician, but that they would enjoy his friendship and that he was so much fun to work with him that was already a pleasant surprise. Alexx is a real gentleman!
Therefore, the musicians around band founder HANS ZILLER decided to undertake Alexx permanently as the new Bonfire singer.
Our big thank you goes to Michael Bormann – which is certainly an absolute exceptional singer , and this he has proven for years in various projects – for his willingness to enter into BONFIRE and also for his understanding to our final decision and wish him for his future musical path only the very best.
