Jimmy Kay from Canada’s The Metal Voice spoke to Graham Bonnet from the Graham Bonnet Band at this years NAMM show on June 25 2019. Graham Bonnet told The Metal Voice that they were planning on relaunching the 80’s band Alcatrazz. Bonnet said in the interview, "We have just put the band together and we have a new guitarist. Basically we will be going out and playing the Alcatrazz songs live and we will be recording a new Alcatrazz studio album. Also on the studio album we will be having a few guest players so some good surprises coming up."
Graham Bonnet Manager Giles Lavery explained in more detail to The Metal Voice that the guitarist for the relaunch of Alcatrazz will be Joe Stump (Reign of Terror, Holy Hell ) and that a new double live Alcatrazz album will be recorded (and filmed) on the upcoming Japanese tour. The live album will feature the entire AlcatrazzNo Parole from Rock and Roll album and entire Rainbow Down to Earth Album. Plus rarely performed tracks from Bonnet’s days with Impellitteri and Blackthorne.
Alcatrazz keyboardist Jimmy Waldo also added on separate interview to The Metal Voice Feb 1 2019,"The last two Graham Bonnet Band albums stylistically have essentially been Alcatrazz albums as we were aiming for that direction anyways. With our new guitar player Joe Stump we feel we can take Alcatrazz to the next level. Due to popular demand it’s time to bring the name back. "
