April 14th, 2014 sees the UK release of the long awaited new studio album ‘Tearing Down The Walls’ by Swedish rock band H.E.A.T via earMUSIC.
Once again the band decided the move into Bohus Studio with Grammy-award winning producer Tobias Lindell and created an explosive, fresh sound.
The first sneak peak of the album is the lead single ‘A Shot At Redemption’. It confirms all that H.E.A.T showed before and more: a catchy hookline, a driven beat, the obligatory guitar solo and the raw, beyond comparison vocals of singer Erik Grönwall.
‘A Shot At Redemption’ was be released digitally as part of a 4-track EP on February 14th, 2014 via earMUSIC.
Added on top of the ‘A Shot At Redemption’ EP are the previously unreleased ‘Under Your Skin’, a goosebumps worthy acoustic version of H.E.A.T’s ‘In And Out Of Trouble’ and a sensual cover of one of the greatest ballads, ‘She’s Like The Wind’.
Four songs to enjoy the energetic and explosive side of H.E.A.T and their great talent for ballads, to ease the wait for the very anticipated new studio album.
‘Tearing Down The Walls’ – their brand new studio work – is the follow-up to the successful ‘Address The Nation’ which was praised by media worldwide as one of the best albums in 2012 and consolidated the band’s reputation as the new leading band in hard edged melodic rock.
H.E.A.T had a huge hit in Scandinavia with the song ‘1000 Miles’ in 2009 and the band’s 2nd Album, ‘Freedom Rock’ was nominated as one of the Top 50 albums in 2010 by Classic Rock Magazine UK. Since then, they have been touring all over the world, convincing everyone with their powerful performance.
In a moment when artists like Foreigner, Journey and Whitesnake are enjoying a second youth, when teenagers are re-discovering the melodic approach to hard rock which these artists have mastered and when proudly wearing their logo on T-shirts all of a sudden turned “hip”, when classic hard rock songs are again in the single charts and among the most downloaded … – H.E.A.T is the hope for carrying this genre to the future. They are young, ambitious and full of energy.
H.E.A.T’s music is not a revival, and it’s not nostalgic. Still … it’s by far the best you can have today if you love “classic rock” or “AOR” … or more simply if you think that rock music means energy, great songs, and the ambition to be on top of the world.
A new double A-side single ‘Tearing Down The Walls’ / ‘Mannequin Show’ will be released on Monday April 14th; to coincide with the release of the new album.
H.E.A.T will play four UK dates in May:
London Garage Friday 16th May
Newcastle O2 Academy 2 Saturday 17th May
Glasgow Cathouse Sunday 18th May
Manchester Academy 3 Monday 19th May
Tickets for all four concerts are can be ordered from the official H.E.A.T website.
