Saga är ett band många har hört och är ett band många gillar i smyg. Ikväll är dock kvällen som SAGA gör sin sista spelning i Sverige. NÅGONSIN! Efter 40 år som band, med några avbrott och medlemsbyten efter vägen, så är SAGAs sista kapitel på god väg att skrivas klart.

Jag hoppas så många som möjligt kommer och har en biljett till det utsålda giget ikväll! Jag har turen att få uppleva giget tillsammans med tre riktigt härliga människor.

Ikväll hoppas jag på att få höra följande låtar.

1. The Flyer
2. On The Loose
3. Only Time Will Tell
4. Careful Where You Step
5. Scratching The Surface
6. Humble Stance
7. Mouse in a Maze
8. Wind Him Up
9. Times Up
10. Misbehaviour

Nästa höst kommer att bli ljusare! Det är nämligen dags för världens bästa band att släppa sitt 25e album. Denna gång kommer Uriah Heep släppa ett album med titeln “Living The Dream“.

Press Release 11/16/2017

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce that URIAH HEEP are set to commence the recording of their brand new studio album (the 25th in their storied career), which will be titled, appropriately enough, “Living The Dream.”

“We have been together for 47 years and we have seen many bands come and go, so in effect we are ‘Still Living The Dream,’ so it was the perfect title for the new album,” says Uriah Heep guitarist and founding member Mick Box.

Jay Ruston has been called in to produce the album. Mick continues, “We chose Jay because we admire his work with The Winery Dogs, Stone Sour, Black Star Riders, Paul Gilbert, and Europe. Jay has either produced, mixed or both for these bands, and he will bring a fresh approach to Heep, which we are very much looking forward to.”

The plan is release the album through Frontiers in fall 2018 (release window subject to change). The band is beyond excited with the material written for the new album, which will include some epic additions to the band’s huge catalog of rock staples and looks forward to sharing it with their fans around the world

In the meantime, the band has announced four Canadian tour dates, with more shows in the works. “The mighty Heep are proudly able to tour in over 61 countries and we look forward to a packed touring schedule in 2018. Touring is in our blood and what we have a passion to do, and so 2018 is no exception,” concludes Box.

Uriah Heep debuted in 1970 with the release of one of hard rock’s milestones, “Very ‘eavy… Very ‘umble” and have since sold in excess of 30 millions albums worldwide. They constantly tour the world, playing up to 125 shows a year to 500,000+ fans. The band’s live set features the classic tracks from the ’70s and is a musical journey from the band’s beginnings to the present day.

A full tour in support of the new release will be announced in the coming months.

URIAH HEEP:

Mick Box: Guitars, Vocals
Phil Lanzon: Keyboards, Vocals
Bernie Shaw: Lead Vocals

Som många säkert vet så avled Jon English 2016. Nu har ett gäng mycket kompetenta musiker spelat in en hyllningsplatta. Albumet släpps endast i 2000 exemplar! Vill ni ha denna unika vinyl så måste ni vara snabba! Mer info nedan.

If you want to order a copy of our tribute album to Jon English, find all information here:

Pre-order the vinyl album.
OK, there are many of you who write and ask how to get a copy of the album. As we will release only 2000 copies (we are only allow to release that amount), we want to give you all a chance to order a copy. Everyone who order the album before November 15 will also get their name in the booklet that will come with the vinyl album. Once again. This is a vinyl album. It will NOT be released on CD.

So here is what you do to secure your copy:
Send an e-mail to: johannes@thefriendlyranger.com
In the e-mail, write your full address, your e-mail and of course, your name. Spell it right.

Also write how many copies you want (as we want so many people as possible to get a chance for a copy, a maximum of 3 copies can be ordered per person)
When the album is ready to ship out we will send you a link, so you can pay via PayPal. We look at a release in late January 2018.

As this order is not legally binding in any way, I still think and hope that if you order it and get your name in the booklet, you will honor the order and pay for it once released.

The price will be $45 AUD each (about 290 SEK). At this point I am not sure exactly how much shipping will be, but probably around $13-15 AUD to Australia and New Zealand. Cheaper within Europe.

The album will contain 11 songs, where Jon is singing on two of them. You can find more information about every song on this Facebook page.

The package will contain a transparent vinyl album in a gatefold sleeve with an 8 page booklet that will contain the lyrics and a short story about every song. They will be numbered from 1-2000. Sorry but we can not promise you a certain number. It would be a too big job to keep track of that. Hope you understand.

Please share and tell your friends that you know want a copy. When they are sold out, they are sold out for good!
