British Hard Rock Legends URIAH HEEP announce the new album deal !

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of URIAH HEEP, the legendary British Hard Rock band for the release of their 23rd studio album in April 2011.

Following the completion of their 40th Anniversary Tour, the band started the recordings in January 2010 at Liscombe Park Studios in Buckinghamshire England. The confirmed title of the album is “Into the Wild” and it will include 11 brand new songs, including some epic additions to the band’s huge catalogue of rock classics.

Guitarist and founding member Mick Box said: “We are delighted and excited to be joining the Frontiers roster. We see it as a really fantastic move and we are now fully immersed in recording process and hope to deliver the album they want, we want and the fans want. ‘Appy Days”

The band has recorded a video recording diary and the first chapter can be seen following this link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcWWsBIv1wU

They constantly tour in the world, playing in over 53 countries and the band’s live setlist features hits from the 70s and 80s, such as “The Wizard”, “Free ‘n Easy”, “Sunrise” and their monster hits “Easy Livin’”, “July Morning” and “Lady in Black”, as well as new material.

How times change, this band used to be considered heavy metal, now the mainstream media puts them as progressive rock.
 
Similar to how people like Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Savoy Brown were included in heavy metal encyclopedias,  and now are considered blues artists

Frontiers Records has scheduled the release of URIAH HEEP’s forthcoming studio album “Into the Wild” on April 15th in Europe and May 3rd in North America.

Produced by Mike Paxman (Status Quo, Asia) the new album will include the following songs: Nail On The Head, I Can See You, Into The Wild, Money Talk, Trail Of Diamonds, Lost, Believe, Southern Star, I'm Ready, T-bird Angel, Kiss Of Freedom.

The cover art was designed again by the renowned Greek-American artist Ioannis (LYNYRD SKYNYRD, STYX, SAGA etc). A videoclip for “Nail on the Head” is going to be shot in the coming days and will be added to the album as a special interactive tool.

The band has also recently posted a new video recording diary which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHl768v25Ho
