The Swedish melodic hard rock group H.E.A.T. will release "Into The Great Unknown" today.
H.E.A.T. was formed in Upplands Väsby in 2007, when the prior bands DREAM and TRADING FATE merged into H.E.A.T.
After one and a half years of intense songwriting, with guitarist Dave Dalone (aka Sky Davis) back in the mix, the band went on a questionable trip to record an album in Thailand, once again with Swedish Grammy award-winning producer Tobias Lindell. With 10 top songs in their cannon, H.E.A.T entered the heavenly Karma Sound studios in the outskirts of Bangkok to record what would become the fifth studio album. Once again the band continue the musical landscape with an innovative, highly explosive and refreshing melodic rock sound and an unforgettable collection of fantastic new songs.
"Into The Great Unknown" is the follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed "Tearing Down The Walls". 2012’s successful "Address The Nation" album was praised worldwide as one of the best albums of the year, and consolidated the H.E.A.T’s growing reputation as the new leading band in hard edged melodic rock.
In 2009, H.E.A.T had a huge hit in Scandinavia with the song "1000 Miles". That same year the band’s second album "Freedom Rock" was nominated as one of the Top 50 albums in 2010 by Classic Rock magazine UK. Since then, they’ve toured all over the world, blowing audiences away with their outstanding live concerts.
In a time when artists like FOREINGER, JOURNEY and WHITESNAKE are enjoying a resurgence, teenagers are re-discovering the melodic approach to hard rock. The kids are suddenly wearing their classic rock band logos on t-shirts. H.E.A.T is the beacon of light that many say will carry this tradition into the future. They’re young, ambitious and full of energy and ideas.
H.E.A.T don’t hide their love for their classic rock heroes, but don’t try to copy it, either. They just do it and they want to be the best at it. And they are one of the best - drawing both young and old to their mesmerising, freshly sounding, energetic classic rock and bombastic melodies.
The group released their latest album, Tearing Down the Walls, in April 2014 via earMUSIC. Track "A Shot At Redemption" was released as the lead single. Headed by frontman Erik Grönwall, the band's heavy sound is strongly influenced by past melodic rock groups such as WHITESNAKE, with H.E.A.T having supported musical acts such as SCORPIONS.
Two days ago and prior the release of their new studio album, H.E.A.T premieres the official music video for their brand new single “Eye Of The Storm” today.
Erik Grönwall tells about the tune: “In a hurricane there is a treacherous place, after the initial big wind… as the centre of the storm passes over where it is seemingly calm and still and safe. This is always temporary and what happens next is the strongest and most dangerous part of the storm. That is often the same scenario in relationships. That calm in the “Eye Of The Storm” tricks people into taking their breaths and letting down the guard. Then the winds of emotion hit again and even harder..”
The band will support the release by a UK and European tour in November 2017, see the dates below.
Today's tune "Eye Of The Storm" is the second single from the brand new album "Into The Great Unknown", enjoy!
