J.B.O. – the founders of Comedy Metal return with their 11th studio album
For more than two decades J.B.O. have withstood genre trends like Grunge, Pagan Metal, Metalcore, Nu Metal or whatever else they are called. Nowadays they are as successful as ever – even in places which many wouldn’t expect. J.B.O. works perfectly at big metal festivals as well as local scene bars, beer tents, at the Spring-Break-Event, the mainstream music open air or anywhere else – their comedy metal is still absolutely unique.
The eleventh J.B.O. studio album, simply called „11“, will be released via AFM Records / Soulfood Music Distribution on July, 8th, 2016.
More than 2.5 million sold records, incl. two Gold Awards for more than 250,000 units, during their career so far. Top Media Control Chart entries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, TV reports, festival performances and countless celebrated shows throughout Europe display their multilateral popularity. It is their unusual mixture of hard rock music and a weird-ingenious-humour, camouflaged in pink which has brought them cult status.
It works even with sports and politics, as the hymn “Freak City” for the reigning basketball champion Brose Baskets Bamberg (German league) or a reception with the local “Piraten” have shown.
The European Football Championship will be in full swing when it comes to the release of „11“ on July 8th and while top eleven/teams will already be on their way home, J.B.O. will still be there rocking with their “11”!
