Details Of Sophomore Album "Hot Wired Beat" Posted By Hard Action

Finnish hard rock act Hard Action's debut album, "Sinister Vibes" (2015), was an unexpected underground success with its buzzsaw-guitar caveman brand of action rock, taking the band to several tours across Europe. Their second album, "Hot Wired Beat," is set for international release December 1st via Svart Records. Check out the first single "Nothing Ever Changed" in the player below.

The Hard Action of today is a slightly older, more street-smart, tighter bunch of hairy youngsters. "Hot Wired Beat" boils with the hot blood of youth, but its better musicianship and production values give room for certain more traditional aspects of rock music, such as melody and hooks. Tradition is the key here in other respects, too: at times, the record channels the spirit of the early '70s Rolling Stones; at others, it sounds not unlike something Hanoi Rocks could've recorded early on.

On "Hot Wired Beat," Hard Action succeed in being both youthfully reckless and smooth, like scenes of violent street fights set to classic Fleetwood Mac albums. Expect to see the band live at an underground joint near you in 2018.

The track listing for "Hot Wired Beat" is:

1. Free Fall
2. Nothing Ever Changed
3. Hostile Street
4. The Losing Side
5. Running Start
6. Tied Down
7. Knocked Down, Dragged Out
8. May
9. Tunnel Vision
