"We have been together for 47 years and we have seen many bands come and go, so in effect we are "Still Living The Dream", so it was the perfect title for the new album,” says URIAH HEEP guitarist and founding member Mick Box.
Famed Canadian engineer, Jay Ruston has been called in to produce the album. Mick continues: “We chose Jay because we admire his work with THE WINERY DOGS, STONE SOUR, BLACK STAR RIDERS, Paul Gilbert and EUROPE. Jay has either produced, mixed or both for these bands, and he brought a fresh approach to Heep. He has been marvellous to work with."
The band is beyond excited with the material written for the new album, which will include some epic additions to the band’s huge catalog of rock staples and looks forward to sharing it with their fans around the world.
The album will be released in CD, deluxe edition including one bonus audio track and a DVD, LP and Limited Box Set Edition (including deluxe edition + T-shirt).
URIAH HEEP debuted in 1970 with the release of one of hard rock’s milestones, "Very 'eavy... Very 'umble", and have since sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide. They constantly tour the world, playing up to 125 shows a year to 500,000+ fans. The band’s live set features the classic tracks from the '70s and is a musical journey from the band's beginnings to the present day.
The band has announced a full World Tour which will last until the whole first quarter of 2019, see all the dates below. "The mighty Heep are proudly able to tour in over 61 countries and we look forward to a packed touring schedule in 2018 and 2019. Touring is in our blood and what we have a passion to do, and so 2018 is no exception,” concludes Box.
