Heaven Below, the current project of Union Underground/Lita Ford guitarist Patrick Kennison, has signed with EMP Label Group, which will release the band’s upcoming LP "Good Morning Apocalypse" on October 14th, 2016.
"Good Morning Apocalypse" features guest appearances from Lita Ford, Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys, Broken Teeth), Udo Dirkschneider (Accept), and Kobra Paige of Kobra and the Lotus. Check out an album sampler below.
Says Kennison, “Nearly 4 years ago the band and I decided that we’d like to start working on a concept record. We knew how ambitious it sounded to even consider that, but once several legendary artists offered to help make it become a reality, we knew we had something.”
He continues, “With over 30 songs written, we narrowed it down to the top 12. Udo Dirkschneider, Lita Ford, Jason McMaster, and Kobra Paige all stepped up to lend their amazing talents. We feel this album is a powerful culmination of old school metal meets current fresh metal. This kind of undertaking only comes along once in a lifetime, and we think we captured the moment on 'Good Morning Apocalypse.\ The timing was perfect with EMP’s outside of the box approach to new music.” More...
Having just wrapped up their 2010 Horns & Halos Tour, Heaven Below is thanking fans with an exclusive EP, available for download through their website. The download includes a Horns N' Halo Tour video, as well as four new tracks ("Original Sin," "Run," "Clown Boy," "Strange Days: Vicodin Mix"), an eight page PDF booklet, and wallpapers.
The band is fronted by Patrick Kennison - formerly of The Union Underground - and supported by members Jesse Billson on guitar, John Younger on bass, and Chad Clark on drums.
“Our sound encompasses the best parts of our influences,” explains Kennison. “We love the vocal harmonies of classic bands like Alice in Chains, or the angst of legends like Trent Reznor, but our riffs and song ideas tend to be spawn from guitar driven bands like Metallica, or even Rage Against the Machine. Once we put the vocals on, we immediately feel that our music takes on it's own sound.”
