In a recent talk with the “Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz”, TNT guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø confirmed that he has been in touch with the band’s former lead vocalist Tony Harnell about a possible reunion.
Speaking about the band’s current status, Ronni said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I’ve started writing new material, and I’m currently having good talks with Tony and the whole band. We have very much communication. And it’s been 40 years [since TNT’s formation]. But we’re trying to bring the band back together and hopefully make one last tour of Europe and maybe America… I think we might wanna end the TNT chapter with dignity and do one last tour.”
Harnell last departed TNT back in October 2017, less than a year and a half after he rejoined the group. He would later describe his relationship with TNT in an “Unphiltered” interview as “a very long marriage. I’m here [in New York], they’re there [in Norway] — they’re across the pond really far away. It’s a very difficult situation to be in without having a very unified business organization, and no matter what I did, I could not get the thing unified. We were just on two totally separate not only continents physically, but mentally, psychologically, we were on two different continents as well.”
Harnell said that he “really, really wanted” his latest collaboration with TNT to work out. “In my opinion, this was gonna be it — we were gonna stay together until I didn’t feel like singing anymore,” he said. ‘I was gonna do other things and do other projects and so forth, but my goal was that TNT would be my band for at least another five years, maybe 10 years or whatever, until it ran its course. So this was kind of an unexpected thing.”
TNT’s latest album, “XIII” was released in June 2018. It is the band’s 13th LP and features vocals from Spanish singer Baol Bulsara who replaced Harnell after he announced his departure the year previous.
