New Single Release: “Nationwide”
Release Date: March 25, 2022
Sweden’s own heavy metal band are going all out with the release of the powerful anthem “Nationwide” that precedes their upcoming album “Force Majeure” that will drop on August 5, 2022.
For most people, the last two years have probably been marked by exactly what has given H.E.A.T’s album its name – a “force majeure.” The band is back with their original singer Kenny Leckremo doing the powerful lead vocals. The rest of the current lineup is: Dave Dalone on guitars, Jona Tee on keys, Jimmy Jay on bass and Don Crash on drums.
“Nationwide” takes us forward in a positive way after the last two years. It kicks off the band’s upcoming Scandinavia tour and also makes us look forward to the festival season 2022 that so many are anticipating. “Nationwide” is the epitome of what the band has been able to do so successfully in the past–uniting young and old rock fans alike.
The band amps it up not only visually but through the sounds as well. Through the music video and the artwork a vibrant fictional world is created–H.E.A.T City has been built for this release only, revealing to us an exciting “mise en scene” for the band’s energetic album.
About the single “Nationwide” Rock at Night says: “This is an anthem, 80’s style; a powerful heavy metal tune with a whole visual experience including the creation of some virtual urban scenery in the video. What a song! If you love amped up harmonies and incredible range with vocals, screaming guitar riffs and incredible backing musicianship, this is a lyric video to watch and experience. This album is going to be GOOD. My lighter is already up for the encore!“
