Heaven Shall Burn Reveals New Album "Veto" Release

Heaven Shall Burn, which hilariously lit up the Twitterverse a few years back when conservative Christians discovered the band existed, has just finished recording upcoming album "Veto." The album is scheduled to be released on the following dates:

Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Norway: April 19th, 2013
Rest of Europe: April 22nd, 2013
Australia / New Zealand / Finland: April 26th, 2013
USA/Canada: April 30th, 2013

Maik Weichert (guitar) comments on the album: "We cannot wait to play the album to people! It turned out very diverse, it's melodic, emotional and brutal at the same time. Several guests visited us in the studio for additional performances, so you can look forward to some interesting twists!"

Due to a recent event, Maik would like to share a first song title: "Just while finalizing the very last bits and pieces for 'VETO' we received the sad news that Walter Schilling passed away in Saalfeld on January 29th. Walter Schilling was a Protestant pastor and civil rights activist in the GDR (former East Germany). We have a new song called 'Antagonized' that is about him, his life and his work in Thuringia.

"It might seem odd that a band called Heaven Shall Burn is dedicating a song to a man of the church. Still, Schilling was never into clerical dogmas. Instead he encouraged and helped teenagers to pursue new and alternative cultural ideas under the protective shield of his church and youth centre in Braunsdorf near Saalfeld. Without Walter Schilling a huge part of the youth culture and music in Thuringia wouldn't have happened - this probably goes for the GDR in general. No matter if you liked Blues, played Punk or Metal, every single person was welcome in Braunsdorf, Saalfeld, Rudolstadt or Jena. Schilling helped establishing what enabled HSB to play music, because most of the clubs and musicians that supported us in our very early days were directly or indirectly involved with Schilling's work. You will not find many theologians of Walter's kind."
