H.E.A.T Split With Guitarist Dave Dalone
July 7, 2013
H.E.A.T guitarist Dave Dalone has decided to leave the band, after seven years, to pursue new musical challenges. For now the Swedish AOR rockers will continue as a five man band and assure fans that Dalone’s departure will not affect the group’s upcoming gigs or the upcoming recording of their fourth album, which is due to be released in early 2014.
“This is of course a sad day for all of us,” state the remaining members of H.E.A.T, “but we’re positive that H.E.A.T will carry on as normal, making kick ass albums and touring the world. It’s been seven years of nothing but good times with Dave, a fantastic guitar player, songwriter and friend. We wish him all the best in his plans for the future.”
Dalone replies, “I’ve always been a great fan of melodic rock. For me, H.E.A.T started out as the passion project of my dreams, and turned into the great and strong melodic rock band that it is today. I want to thank each and everyone involved and all of the great fans that made this journey possible for me. I have been to places, met so many nice people, experienced great moments that will stay in my heart forever. I leave this band because I have always believed in the fact that you should always stay true to your heart and follow your dreams, no matter what! I still have great faith in H.E.A.T and nothing but love for all of the members in the band, they will always be my brothers.”
H.E.A.T released their third album, and the band’s first with vocalist Erik Gronwall, in March of 2012 through Gain/earMusic. Sleaze Roxx said “Address The Nation’s refreshing input confirms just how far H.E.A.T have come and how far they will go with the aid of new frontman Gronwall (arguably the ‘Voice’ of Sweden), who could quite well be the second lucky Ace in the hole for these fine, Swedish whippersnappers.”
