The band’s third album is set for release worldwide on Prosthetic in fall of 2012 and the band will travel to Europe to headline theProgPower Europe Festival in the Netherlands on October 5th to coincide.
The band commented upon the new alliance: “We are extremely proud to be a part of the Prosthetic family and to work with one of the most genuine labels in the world! Having worked with Prosthetic on a managerial level during my Despised Icon years, I've come to understand that these guys don't compromise in terms of putting out creative music and are true believers of what's original and innovative. The variety of bands and the quality of music they released in the past years speaks for itself. We are very much honored that our music earned it's place among their ranks!"
And with the recent announcement of their ProgPower appearance, Heaven's Cry also commented: "Going back to play the ProgPower Festival in Europe after 10 years is amazing, but headlining the first night of the festival is just unreal! We're glad to travel back to the old continent and this time, we will have a brand new album to present to the European public. It's going to be a blast to perform with some of the finest prog bands out there. ProgPower Festival is definitely the place to be for all fans of Progressive music!"

Prosthetic Records commented:
"Heaven's Cry was formed in the beginning of the 90's as a progressive rock band with a metal tangent. From a French part of Canada in the city of Montreal, Pierre St-Jean(vocals, guitars) and Sylvain Auclair (vocals, bass) decided to join their efforts, building a dual voice oriented band.
"Beginning their career opening for bands like Marillion and Saga, the band signed with a Canadian label Hypnotic Records in 1995 and recorded their first album called 'Food For Thought Substitute' in 1996. The album was released in Japan the same year and earned 13th metal album of the year in the reputed 'Burrn! Magazine.' It was released in Europe and Canada the following year.
"In 1997, most important European magazines finally got their hands on the album. Reviews were more than flattering for Heaven's Cry, voted album of the month in Germany, Italy, Holland, Czech Republic and many more. After some changes in the band line-up, René Lacharité (drums) and Eric Jarrin (guitar) joined the band in late 2000.
"'Primal Power Addiction' was released in Europe in October 2002 on the reputed Dutch label, DVS Records. The feedback has been enormous. They travelled to Europe to be part of the ProgPower Festival in The Netherlands followed by a tour supporting Threshold in Belgium, Germany and Denmark. The album was released in North America in March 2003 and the band performed in Canada in support for bands like Anvil, Planet X, Arena and Nightwish throughout 2004.
"After a seven-year hiatus, the band decided it was time to reform to offer brand new music to their loyal fans that kept on supporting them while the members were busy crafting their art under other musical projects. The band performed for the occasion at the legendary Montreal club, Les Foufounes Electriques, on September 18th 2011 as support act for Swedish band, Katatonia."
