There's a guest spot which perfectly complements the song it's featured on and the overall sound is a much more accomplished effort!" More...

Heart In Hand Splits With Bassist

U.K. act Heart In Hand has posted the following message online about splitting with the band's bassist:

"As some of you may have seen already, we have very recently parted ways with our bass player Carl.

"He was there from the start and had a huge part shaping Heart In Hand into what it is today, but it was time for him to move forward and onto other ventures. There are no hard feelings between us and we wish him all the best for his future.

"Taking his place on the lower frequencies will be our long term friend and bass wizard Gav Thane. You might remember him from bands like Viatrophy and Death Of An Artist, and he also filled in for Carl on our Scandinavian tour last month.

"Here's to the future, forever looking forward!"

Pit Stories: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Every week we check in with fans and musicians to get their favorite Pit Stories. Today guitarist Ed Hartwell from Heart In Hand tells the following story about courteous moshers lending a helping hand...and wishing they hadn't:

This was not at a metal or hardcore show, but I think that makes it even funnier. A couple of years ago I went to see The Foo Fighters at the Milton Keynes Bowl and during one of their "mosh pits" (I use the term as loosely as possible) it became apparent that a pretty fat guy had fallen and was in a lot of pain. I think he had broken or sprained his foot from teeny bopping or something.

The crowd around him adopted the 'all for one and one for all' safety mentality which is usually the case at shows and helped lift him up to the barrier. It took a lot of force cos of his size. At this point a few people had noticed that he'd shit himself and it was coming out his shorts.

Of course they immediately tried to get away, but of course couldn't due to the sheer density of the crowd. It was too late and their heroic good samaritan deeds were rewarded by being horribly traumatized, as a big shitty guy tumbled over their heads. I was about 3 metres from the incident so luckily had a good enough view without getting any fecal matter on me whilst I enjoyed "Monkey Wrench."

Heart in Hand's second album "Almost There" is due out May 13th via Siege Of Amida Records. The band will be touring the U.K. and Europe over the summer and making various festival appearances. For more info on the band, head over to the Heart In Hand Facebook profile. More...

SOAR Announces Partnership With Century Media

Century Media Records has announced a worldwide partnership with U.K. indie label Siege Of Amida Records (known as SOAR).

This new deal sees SOAR utilized as a central launch pad for the metal and hardcore genres, focusing predominantly on the increasingly vibrant U.K. underground scene and launching emerging international acts onto the circuit.

Century Media label manager Antje Lange says of the deal: "We feel honoured and excited to work with the highly acclaimed label Siege Of Amida. They've proved that they have the Midas touch and the instinct for catching great new bands early and we are confident that we can put the label to the next level, on a worldwide basis."

After starting the careers of the likes of Whitechapel, Annotations of an Autopsy, Heart In Hand, Ingested, TRC, and Dyscarnate, as well as being the European vessel for U.S. bands such as Impending Doom and Molotov Solution, SOAR is reputed for being one of the leading labels spearheading a movement of new exciting bands within extreme music. Many of their past bands are now with larger, internationally established labels such as Metal Blade, Victory, eOne and Nuclear Blast; this deal sees them no longer in the shadow of larger labels and able to compete with the heavyweights.
