URIAH HEEP 'Live at Koko, London 2014' Out Feb 20 via Frontiers

Artist: 
 
URIAH HEEP’s “Live at Koko, London 2014”: British Hard Rock legends better and stronger than ever on their “home” stages!
Out on Frontiers in February
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of URIAH HEEP’s newest live album entitled “Live at Koko, London 2014” on February 20th 2015 in Europe and February 24th in North America.
 
In January 2011, the band returned to the studio to record “Into the Wild” and the band once again returned to the road for a worldwide tour. Playing to nearly 150,000 people, in Eastern Europe, Australia, Japan, and America and playing in 58 different countries in total. On March 4th 2014, Uriah Heep played in front of their “home” audience in London and performed an amazing show which was recorded in HD for a release in Double cd/dvd and, for the first time, on Blu-Ray.
 
“Recording a live DVD in London at Koko's was just fantastic. Our fans travelled from all over the world to be there, and be part of this magic night,” says Mick Box. “This added so much to the atmosphere, and thankfully it was captured on camera. We debuted two songs from our new CD, 'Outsider,' that night, and the reaction was just incredible, proving that we have the best fans in the world.”
 
                Originally founded by vocalist David Byron and guitarist Mick Box, Uriah Heep has been through an incredible number of permutations, with Mick Box always at the helm. Long standing keyboard player Phil Lanzon and vocalist Bernie Shaw were recruited nearly 30 years ago in 1986. Drummer Russell Gilbrook who has now been with the band 7 years, has recorded studio albums “Wake the Sleeper”, “Into the Wild” & “Outsider”. “Wake the Sleeper” heralded an exciting new phase for the band, taking Heep’s classic sound right into the future. The band celebrated its 40th anniversary with an aptly titled greatest hits re-recordings album called “Celebration”. Dave Rimmer, who had been standing in for Trevor Bolder (ex-David Bowie's Spiders From Mars), continues as the bassist, with the band’s diary for the foreseeable future as full as ever.
 
                “Live at Koko, London 2014” track listing includes:
 
CD1 : Against The Odds; Overload; Traveller In Time; Sunrise; Stealin’; I’m Ready; Between Two Worlds; Can’t Take That Away; One Minute; Nail On The Head.
CD2 : Into The Wild; Gypsy; Look At Yourself; Box Wah Box; July Morning; Lady In Black; Free’n’Easy; Easy Livin’.

British Rock Legends URIAH HEEP Return To Australia In March 2015

Artist: 

 
Metropolis Touring & Abstract Entertainment Present: BRITISH ROCK LEGENDS URIAH HEEP RETURN TO AUSTRALIA IN MARCH 2015!

 

"This was a rock concert as it was supposed to be ' no flashy pyrotechnics, no flying pigs, just hard and heavy rock for the faithful." - Mark Robertson - BBC Music Review
 
Metropolis Touring are proud to announce the return of legendary rockers URIAH HEEP to Australia.  Considered one of the 'Big Four' pioneers of hard rock and heavy metal in the late '60's and early '70's along with BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE & LED ZEPPELIN & URIAH HEEP still enjoy legendary status.
 
URIAH HEEP's unique, progressive, hard sound has made them a mainstay of the rock circuit for four decades. Famed for their accomplished musical talents, diverse song writing and powerful live performances, the band has released some of the most popular and defining music of their genre.  With a catalogue of 23 studio albums that includes 'Demons and Wizards' (1972), 'Abominog' (1982), and their most recent release, 2011's 'Into The Wild' (their highest charting album since the '70's) it's no surprise that the band has sold over 40 million records worldwide.
 
'Heep is not interested in being flavour of the month, or in chasing trends ' they prefer to do what they have always done: Play killer rock and roll and make the best music they know how to make.' -   Classic Rock Revisited
 
Australian audiences in particular have taken URIAH HEEP into their hard'rocking hearts, with the band scoring consecutive charting albums and singles in the country on more than one occasion.  Their last triumphant tour in 2011 saw Aussie audiences young and old embrace the rockers in sell out shows for their 40th Anniversary Tour. Their remarkable popularity also spawned the exclusive Australian compilation 'Downunda', released to commemorate their 1974 tour.  What's more, in 2003 URIAH HEEP enlisted the vocal talents of none other than Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes on the 'Relentless' album, thus cementing their affinity to this country.
 
Watch ''NAIL ON THE HEAD'' from 2011's 'Into the Light' album
 
URIAH HEEP have toured consistently throughout their 45'year career, performing in over 48 countries to millions of faithful fans, including headline performances at Reading and the prestigious Sweden Rock Festival.  In 1987 they became the first major rock act to perform in the Soviet Union, playing to audiences of 185,000 people. Their fan base also includes far'flung countries such as South Korea, Brazil and Germany.
 
Original member and lead guitarist Mick Box still helms this incredible outfit along with keyboardist Phil Lanzon, vocalist Bernie Shaw, drummer Russell Gilbrook and bassist Davey Rimmer who replaces the late Trevor Boulder who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2011. They remain one of the hardest working bands on the circuit with over 150 shows under their belt in the past year and promise a set'list of some of the highlight picks from their 40 year plus career. In Mick's words:  ''Appy Days!'
 
''they have always been, and still are the masters of rock and this show was just another great moment in rock history!'' -  Marija Brettle ' Hard Rock Hideout

Another very consistent traditional Uriah Heep release. Nothing unexpected – which is as it should be for a band so late into their career.

You don’t get any better example of classic rock than Uriah Heep. The 70s stalwarts prove that rock n roll is the only genre that lasts a lifetime by continuing on their merry way, touring and recording unabated.
Outsider is the band’s latest opus, following up from 2011’s Into The Wild. And as expected we get another slice of pretty consistent blues based rock n roll, where that lush Hammond organ has the same profile as the guitars and rhythm section.
 
For the most part I’m really enjoying what’s on offer here. There are no surprises and no left turns, just straight ahead classic 70s style rock n roll a la traditional Heep.
Highlights within the album include the free flowing Speed Of Sound and the more dramatic One Minute that both get the album off to a strong start.
The double time boogie of The Outsider is fun too; and Rock The Foundation is straight out of the Heep playbook.
Is Anybody Going To Help Me doesn’t quite reach the same heights as earlier tracks, but the up tempo Looking At You is better.
There one track that stands out as a real clunker though and that is The Law. At track 3 I skip it every time and feel that it kills the momentum of the album. Once passed that though, it’s all good.

URIAH HEEP RETURN WITH OUTSIDER ALBUM

Artist: 
URIAH HEEP RETURNS WITH POWERFUL NEW RELEASE: OUTSIDER
 
Uriah Heep, one of the pivotal hard rock groups to emerge from England in the late 1960s returns with Outsider, its 24th studio album, and the first since 2011s critically acclaimed Into the Wild album. Outsider will be released on June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK and June 10th in North America on Frontiers Records.
 
We are very proud of our history says founder/guitarist Mick Box, but it is equally important to keep producing new material. This new album, Outsider, is very much a rock album in true 'Heep' style. It shows that we still have the same passion and energy for our music that we have always had.
 
From the opening chords of the albums hard driving rocker, Speed of Sound, to the more introspective closer, Say Goodbye, Outsider proves that Uriah Heep has remained a musical powerhouse, and one that can effectively balance its legendary sound with a distinctly contemporary approach. The record, which was produced by Mike Paxman (Asia, Status Quo), also introduces bassist Dave Rimmer, who joined the band
last summer after the untimely death of long time member, Trevor Bolder.
 
Says Box of his late friend, Bolder: We lost a world class bass player, singer, songwriter and friend. While Trevor was ill, he wanted us to continue working, so we used a bass player called Dave Rimmer, who Trevor approved of. It was only natural that Dave carried on with the band.
 
After major tours of Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and South America, upon the release of Outsider, Uriah Heep will launch a world tour that will take in many continents as the band promotes the new album to an eager international audience.
 
Formed in London in 1969 by guitarist Mick Box and late singer David Byron as Spice, the group evolved into Uriah Heep (the name was taken from a character in Charles Dickens novel David Copperfield) when they began conceptualizing the first record. The album Very eavy, Very umble, launched the bands distinct sound in 1970, one that was built around layered harmony vocals, swirling keyboards, and heavy guitar riffs. Current lead singer Bernie Shaw and keyboardist Phil Lanzon have been ever present since the mid 1980s, and drummer Russell Gilbrook joined Uriah Heep in 2007.
 
The band's repertoire features hits over five decades from the 70s through to the present day including tracks such as; Gypsy, Easy Livin', July Morning, Look At Yourself, Stealin and Lady in Black, which went to #1 in Germany on three different occasions, and once stayed at #1 for 6 months. They have gone on to sell 40 million records, and have toured globally for 5 decades, visiting no less than 56 countries, headlining numerous festivals and arena tours, including being the first western rock band to play Russia, in 1987. Founder Mick Box has remained throughout.
 
Track listing for Outsider:
Speed Of Sound, One Minute, The Law, The Outsider, Rock The Foundation, Is Anybody Gonna Help Me?, Looking At You, Can't Take That Away, Jessie, Kiss The Rainbow, Say Goodbye
