“Who’s Foolin’ Who”, Bonfire present new single version of their upcoming “MMXXIII” Re-Recordings

September 22, 2023 will see hard rock veterans, BONFIRE, reissue their most wanted albums “Point Blank”, “Fireworks” and “Don’t Touch The Light” as “MMXXIII” re-recording versions with an entirely new artwork. Available for the very first time as digital format on all streaming providers, as colored limited and none limited vinyl and as CD digipack, you can now pre-order your favorite album via AFM Records at THIS LOCATION!

Since more than 35 years, BONFIRE are the embodiment of “Hard’n’Heavy made in Germany“, and belong to one of the most iconic German hard rock bands to date; their latest, 2020-offering “Fistful Of Fire” garnered high positions in the German album charts. Their first three releases, “Don’t Touch The Light” (1986), “Fireworks” (1987) and “Point Blank” (1989), which have shaped a whole era, still hold a special position in BONFIRE’s career. As one of the group’s founding members and its main composer, Hans Ziller came up with an ambitious idea: How would the songs from those now slightly dated releases sound if they were re-recorded in contemporary studio conditions? This concept was particularly exciting because the band’s current line-up is one of the strongest of their entire career. 

And so his idea began to take shape: The outstanding, current BONFIRE line-up, featuring new, exceptional vocalist DYAN, has completely re-recorded all three albums, supported by updated cover artworks. As Zillerrecently said: “What we wanted to do was to record the songs as if Bonfire had been a metal band in the eighties!”


Following a previously-released new version of the song “S.D.I.”, today, BONFIRE are presenting us the “MMXXIII” single version of their classic “Who’s Foolin’ Who”! “A power ballad that has it all.” Ziller comments. “You can immediately hear, this is Dyan’s favorite ballad. His vocal skills are big cinema. The guitars are blazing that it’s a real pleasure. An absolute gem.”
