In 2007, when LoNero married groove and melody driven songs with rhythm and verse, focused it all on the song, band, and the audience, Guitarcore was born! Since that time, LoNero has amassed a wide-ranging following of fans, eclipsed perhaps only by their numerous endorsements by companies such as Peavey, Dunlop, EMG, Seymour Duncan, , and Hot Picks. Neil Zlozower, legendary photographer in the rock world, describes LoNero’s style as “mean, intense, nasty, urgent, aggressive, and angry! I am definitely a fan!!!!” which is exactly what gets the audience going and coming back for more. Bill Lonero (who’s credits include performing and/or recording with Cliff Williams (AC/DC), Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani/Steve Vai), Mike Mangini (Dream Theater/Steve Vai/Extreme), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), Gigi Gonaway (Mariah Carey) and more), JR Manalili, Mike McKaigg, and Will Sharman continue to win over new audiences by touring as primary support for Pat Travers Band, being chosen to travel with Paul Di’Anno (Iron Maiden) as his main support and backing band  and asked to open shows for legends such as Michael Schenker, Uli Roth, Tony MacAlpine and many more. LoNero have recently added a third guitarist (Nasser Abdala) to truly make LoNero a powerhouse to witness. With more harmonies and full-on heaviness, LoNero is currently working on the follow up to their critically acclaimed CD  “J.F.L.”. “The Defiant Machine” will be sure to garner even more fans of heavy yet melodic instrumental guitar. Constantly asking more of themselves and their music, LoNero remains true to the Guitarcore principles of creating a real connection and bond with their fans everywhere. http://lonero.net
