For over 25 years Killer Bee’s founding members, Anders “LA” Rönnblom and Brian “Bee” Frank, have been writing their signature classic hardrock. Through the 90’s Killer Bee released 3 full length CD’s supporting them with extensive touring throughout Europe, England & Russia. Playing on some of the largest festival stages with the best of the best. This legacy has made Killer Bee a force to be reckoned with in 2016. But it has not come without it’s headaches!
Based in Sweden, Killer Bee or namely the Rönnblöm / Frank team have definitely faced their fair share of obstacles. Numerous member changes, the typical industry rip-offs, and bad management have plaqued Killer Bee since the start. Only due to their dedication and drive have Killer Bee risen to a stage in their careers where it seems that no obstacle or barrier is too large to overcome. Rönnblom / Frank have kept the buzz of the Bee alive and their sting is as infectious today as it ever was. The current line-up includes two new members joining Rönnblom / Frank and long- time drummer Morgan Evans as of spring 2015. They are 26 year old guitarist André Hägglund from Sweden and guitar legend Paul “Tonka” Chapman (UFO, Lone Star, Wheysted , Gator Country) Anders Rönnblom, Paul Chapman, Brian Frank, Morgan Evans, André Hägglund www.facebook.com/killerbee www.killerbee.se www.youtube.com/killerbee Just check these words given to the band’s releases “From Hell and Back Again” 2012 and “Evolutionary Children” 2013.

The 90's 3 albums, 5 singles and as many videos. Traditional hard rock of the truest kind. Their never say die attitude and shows all over the world between 1992-1998 from the RED SQUARE & OLYMPIC STADIUM in Moscow, to performing in festivals together with artists such as OASIS, R.E.M, ELTON JOHN, ROD STEWART, PAGE & PLANT, MEGADEATH, PETER FRAMPTON. KILLER BEE were well on their way but situations beyond the control of the band would lead to an eventual 12 years of silence… A time needed to refuel and get back on track.
2010 - The release of "Almost There" was a self proclaimed salute to days gone by. A chance for the listener to hear a compilation of songs that best represented them from their earlier releases. This Cd opened the eyes of past fans and sparked a new driving force which led the two towards this new era of KILLER BEE. 2012 - "From Hell and Back" a suitably titled comeback album was released throughout Europe and across the web. Well received with a positive response, the album was followed by no less than 5 videos to the songs All Night Long, Step Into My World, I Believe, Footprints In The Sand and finally From Hell and Back . The videos distributed online received an enormous near 1,000,000 combined hits
2013 - One year later hot on the heals of From Hell and Back, KILLER BEE once again delivered a new kick-ass Album - "Evolutionary Children" followed by the videos "Children Of The Evolution" and "Scream It".
Once again the band received great response around the world.
