Stonebolt is a rock band from Vancouver, Canada. They first formed in 1969 under the name Perth Amboy, and after adding a vocalist and keyboard player, they changed their name to Stonebolt in the early 1970s. They remained a local attraction in Vancouver until 1977, when they landed a recording contract with Parachute Records. Their first album netted them their first and highest-charting hit single, 1978's "I Will Still Love You" (U.S. #29). A second single, "Love Struck" (U.S. #70), was released in 1979 and appeared on their second album. After Parachute went under, they signed with RCA Records, but further tangible success eluded them. In 1999, Stonebolt re-recorded many of their songs for the CD compilation Regeneration: The Best of Stonebolt, as no original master tapes could be found.
