The long-awaited new studio album from Sweden’s hottest rock and roll band, H.E.A.T, will be officially released by earMusic in the UK on April 14th. Entitled “Tear Down The Walls”, the album features the new single “A Shot At Redemption” – taken from the same titled 4-track EP, released digitally on February 14th.
Recorded at Bohus Studios with Grammy-award winning producer Tobias Lindell, the first sneak peak of the album is the lead single “A Shot At Redemption”. Watch the teaser video HERE…
The new song 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.
The “A Shot At Redemption” EP also includes the previously unreleased tracks “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”.
“Tearing Down The Walls” is the follow-up to the successful “Address The Nation” which was praised by media worldwide as one of the best album’s in 2012 and cemented 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 the UK’s Classic Rock magazine.
While bands like Foreigner, Journey and Whitesnake are enjoying a resurgence with teenagers who are re-discovering the melodic approach to hard rock, H.E.A.T is carrying the torch forward for a new generation of rock fans. They’re young, ambitious and full of energy.
