H.E.A.T signs record deal with GAIN/SONY MUSIC

Posted on 11 Aug 2011 by H.E.A.T

Press release 2011-08-11

 

Gain has signed a record contract with H.E.A.T. The band had their breakthrough in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "1000 Miles" and is worldwide considered to be the new big band in the AOR genre. Classic Rock Magazine (United Kingdom) recently wrote the following about the band's appearance at the Download Festival:

 

"A full-fledged homage to AOR that belies their youth, H.e.a.t are one of the weekend's unexpected highlights. So free of cynicism are they in their love of their heroes, and so thorough in their attention to detail that the likeable Swedes are totally lost in the moment, and that vibe radiates until it reaches everyone in the tent."

 

The band will enter the studio in November this year to record their third album which is scheduled for release early next year.

 

- “Working with Gain has for a long time been one of our dream scenarios. We are more inspired than ever and will take the energy and the time needed for the world to experience the best H.E.A.T album to date”, says Jimmy Jay of H.E.A.T.

 

- “H.E.A.T has for a long time been at the top of our wish list and it's incredibly fun to finally get to work with the band. They've already laid down a strong foundation in Sweden and around the world. We are confident that together we will be able to lift the band to be the world leader in the AOR genre”, says Mark Tagaris, GAIN.

It's hard to imagine how they could possibly top the masterpieces that was s/t and Freedom Rock. Needles to say, even without the excellent Kenny on vocals, this is probably one of my most anticipated releases ever.

Good on them. Not surprised now that they have a "name" as a vocalist and 80's rock seems to be "in" at the moment. :)

 

Can't wait for the next album, should be absolutely amazing.

Great news, H.E.A.T is one of my most fave young band in the last couple of years, while I do miss Kenny's voice, i hope Eric can fill in the shoes comfortably. Lookin' forward to the new album, surely should be one of the highlight of 2012 ! :whistle:

I don't hear any modern influences, but perhaps that's because I love this band so much I don't pay attention to these things. I have read comments on their first two CD's saying they sound too modern, don't really get these comments to be honest, although the unique thing about H.E.A.T for me personally has always been their ability to copy the sound of their heroes (Giant, Europe etc) yet still sound original, fresh and exciting...unlike some "other" bands out there (Grand Design, anyone?)

 

Bottom line, to me this sounds like 100% classic HEAT and can't imagine this album will dissapoint. Erik sounds great too, all he needs now is more vocal training to handle the live shows and then they'll take the world by storm...hopefully :lol:

Yeah I don't get the modern comment either?! Just sounds like kick arse melodic rock to me. Literally cannot wait for this to hit.

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
