It's official! We've signed with Melodicrock Records. A special thanks to our fantastic producer Daniel Flores and to Andrew McNeice for making this happen. You guys ROCK!1f918.png the album will be out July 22nd. Stay tuned!

From melodicrock.com:

MelodicRock Records is once again tapping into the magic that is Sweden’s reservoir of talent to bring you a monster debut album from one of the country’s best young bands.
We’re very excited to announce the signing of RIAN – a melodic hard rock trio from Stockholm.
RIAN’s melodic hard rock sound is a unique combination of 80s AOR with a modern American rock sound.
RIAN is:
Richard Andermyr: Vocals, Guitar
Jan Johansson: Drums
Jonas Melin: Bass
The guys have spent the last year working on their debut album ‘Out Of The Darkness’ with producer Daniel Flores (Mind’s Eye, Find Me, The Murder of My Sweet). Frontman Richard Andermyr was a fan of Daniel’s work and wanted to see if he could imagine mixing their recordings. After listening to the demos, he instantly understood the potential and said that he was ready to not only to mix, but also to produce and record their album.
The result is ‘Out Of The Darkness’, a powerful, melodic hard rock record that is filled with hooks, harmonies and a gritty edge that gives them an original sound.
Their influences are many, including Bon Jovi, Chicago, Dokken, FM, Gary Moore, Giant, Journey, Metallica, Skid Row, Toto, Van Halen, Warrant, Whitesnake and Winger.
Richard Andermyr discovered his songwriting skills in the late 90s. In 2000 he moved to the USA for studies and teamed up with metal band Black Prizm. Back in Sweden Richard formed the hard rock band Whisperwave, who reached the finals in the Emergenza Festival 2 years in a row and were invited by Europe’s Ian Hauglandto play live on the Swedish radio station “Rockklassiker”.
After spending some years playing covers, writing new material and building up his home studio, Richard teamed up with drummer Jan Johansson (Flower Punch, Kitto) in a new cover band. The musical connection was instant. Jan having heard some of Richard’s recordings, convinced him they needed to quit the cover scene and focus on original melodic hard rock. After auditioning several bassists, they found the right bass player inJonas Melin (Asparagus, U R in Hot Water) and the lineup was complete.
The guys rehearsed and recorded demos in Richard’s basement; in the beginning of 2016 they started to see a strong album forming. They were right.
RIAN’s powerful debut album will be released worldwide on July 22 via MRR.
A video for RIAN’s title track ‘Out Of The Darkness’ will debut in the coming weeks.

Yeah, that's probably about right. But Heat are pretty special!
