On May 23, the original lineup of BULLETBOYS played a full-length set live on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise Facebook page. Video can be seen below.
During an appearance on a recent episode of the "Appetite For Distortion" podcast, Torien confirmed that the BULLETBOYS are putting together ideas for a new record. "We've been working on nothing but new music," he said. "So we're diligently writing right now. I've kind of put myself away — not talking on the phone, not going out; just diligently working with some stuff.
"This is gonna be such a diverse and really rad record that people have been really expecting from us for a long time," he explained. "We're taking our musical prowess into a completely new direction with just a lot of new ideas and with this recharged energy. I wanted to do something special.
"I hear a lot of music that's out there and I'm fan of so many different bands, and not everybody is really taking risks or taking chances," he added. "So I think we're gonna be trying to do that on this next EP or album that we're writing right now."
The original BULLETBOYS lineup made its live return on December 30 with a sold-out performance at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California.
Aside from one show in 2011, BULLETBOYS — featuring Marq Torien (vocals), Jimmy D'Anda (drums), Mick Sweda (guitar) and Lonnie Vencent (bass) — had not performed together since 1993.
