  H.E.A.T. REVEAL THE LONG-AWAITED NEW STUDIO ALBUM 'TEARING DOWN THE WALLS'
6 April 2014





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.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
