Die britische Hardrock-Legende Uriah Heep hat ihr 25. Studioalbum “Chaos & Colour” für den 27. Januar 2023 angekündigt. Erscheinen soll das Werk via Silver Lining Music. Außerdem gibt es ein Musikvideo zum Track “Save Me Tonight”, Regie führte Natalia Jonderko Śmiechowicz.

““Save Me Tonight” is another powerful melodic rock track which we have chosen to be the first single as well as the opening track of the album,” sagt Mick Box, Uriah Heeps Gründungsmitglied, “it is made for rock radio and will surely be included on our new set list in 2023.”

““Save Me Tonight comes from a place of frustration and helplessness” fügt Co-Autor und Bassist Rimmer hinzu, “living through these unprecedented past couple of years but hanging on to this raging hope that we would all meet again! Once again, collaborating with Jeff Scott Soto has been a natural and very creative experience and the perfect platform for me to express these feelings and to carry on the Heep legacy.”

Weiter erzählt Mick Box: “The album title reflects that we were in chaotic times with being locked down, tours being cancelled, businesses folding, and all the chaos that was thrown into the world. And as far as I could see it, the only colour people had was through music. It helped so many people get through those difficult years, using that strength and power which music has, to make those bad times not quite so bad.”

Aufgenommen wurde es in den Chapel Studios in London während des Sommers 2021 zusammen mit Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Corey Taylor, Black Star Riders).

“Jay was completely on board with what we are trying to achieve in the studio,” sagt Box. “We’re a band that has a fantastic heritage and to carry on that tradition it was vitally important that the band recorded in the studio all playing at the same time. Jay understood that and he pulled out the best of us as a band, as well as individual players, while getting us some amazing sounds.”
