”A band that’s already honed its craft to razor-sharp perfection.” – Kerrang!
“Infectious and deliciously addictive, shows the rest of the world how rock ’n’ roll should be done.” – Big Cheese
“Lots to enjoy…raucous riffs and belligerent melodies.” – Q Magazine
First impressions count. The impact made by Heaven’s Basement’s debut album, Filthy Empire, on first play is not unlike standing on the runway as a fighter jet screams off the tarmac and into the air: you’re left breathless by the rush, by the roar, by the energy and the neck-snap dynamics of their ferocious rock n’ roll. Listeners will get a taste of that energy when the British band makes their way to Toronto, ON for Canadian Music Week on March 22nd and 23rd (details below). Before heading into Toronto, they will be performing at the Red Bull Crashed Ice race in Quebec City on March 16th.
Influenced by the likes of Led Zeppelin and Guns n’ Roses, the band’s debut album (released digitally on February 5th worldwide, and physically on March 12th in Canada) is a dynamic, full-blooded assault. From the devil-driving dash of Welcome Home, through the boldly melodic anthemicism of Lights Out In London. From the frenetic, speaker-shredding, strobe-lit thrash of I Am Electric, the Jagger-baiting swagger of Heartbreaking Son Of A Bitch, to the bridge-burning, harmony-lashed closer Executioners Day, there’s nary a hook wasted, not a chorus that doesn’t connect, not one audacious flourish of rock n’ roll daring that doesn’t thrill like tongue-kissing a power socket.
Like their sound, Heaven’s Basement’s line-up has been honed on the road. Drummer Chris Rivers, and guitarist Sid Glover led the charge, and with the addition of bassist Rob Ellershaw and vocalist Aaron Buchanon, the band is stronger than ever. They have worked hard and played harder, touring with the likes of Shinedown, Halestorm, Papa Roach and Buckcherry, and winning notice at festivals like Sonisphere, Download, Bloodstock and Hard Rock Hell.
Get ready to rock with Heaven’s Basement!
