Fallen Heirs announce release of second EP for November 2015
Fallen Heirs are scheduled to release their second EP Eyes Wide Open in November 2015.
The Canadian rockers’ press release (with slight edits) indicates:
“Fallen Heirs have been working diligently in the studio over the last several months to bring their brand new, five song EP to life. The highly anticipated second release from the Toronto rockers titled Eyes Wide Open has come together in full form and is ready to be unleashed. Heading into the studio with producer Andre Doucette with high hopes, the group has been working very hard to capture one of the biggest and fullest sounding recordings to date.
Not many details have been given about release plans but the group has now confirmed its November 2015 arrival and are unveiling the new record’s artwork and track listing. Eyes Wide Open, which follows 2014’s self-titled debut EP, includes five new numbers from the four-piece hard rock outfit who have experienced a tremendous amount of growth as a unit over the past two years. They have been honing their craft and really digging into the music; and the live shows just keep getting better. “We have been playing some of the new tracks live and getting some great responses, so we are excited to get some new material out there,” explains lead guitarist, Jay Sayne.
Matched with a huge sonic sound that has taken them to a whole new level musically, the group has instilled a deeper, more profound message into this release and shown their awareness to all who remain unaware of the corruption and chaos that takes place throughout our society every day of our lives.
The Toronto rockers just capped off an action packed summer which included stops at Kitchener’s Big Music Fest in July and a hometown opening slot for Lita Ford in August with Diemonds at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. Three new dates have been confirmed out east toward Quebec for the end of October and a Toronto release party being planned for mid-November will be announced soon! Exciting stuff!”
Sleaze Roxx stated in its review of Fallen Heirs‘ self-titled debut EP: “There are three main ingredients that make all these songs really good. First of all, frontman Tim Shaw‘s voice has the pitch and tone that I really enjoy — like a cross between L.A Guns‘ Phil Lewis and Jane’s Addiction‘s Perry Farrell. Secondly, the music played by guitarists Jay Sayne and Eddie Silver, bassist Phily Dee and drummer Jorge Pereira (who is no longer with the group) is riff oriented and melodic — yet has a modern edge to it. Thirdly, the EP has a nice ‘live’ raw feel to it and definitely was not over produced.”
Sleaze Roxx also caught Fallen Heirs‘ performance when they opened for Lita Ford at the Phoenix Concert theatre in Toronto, Canada. Sleaze Roxx stated in its concert review: “Fallen Heirs are proof that winning fans over the old fashioned way — i.e. through a band’s live performance — is an art that I suspect that they are very good at.”
