H.E.A.T re-release single “Rise” with Kenny Leckremo on lead vocals
Swedish rockers H.E.A.T consisting of guitarist Dave Dalone, bassist Jimmy Jay, keyboardist Jona Tee and drummer Crash along with returning / original singer Kenny Leckremo have re-released their single “Rise” with the latter on lead vocals. The single “Rise” was previously released on H.E.A.T II (2020) with Erik Grönwall handling the lead vocals.
The following message was posted on earMUSIC‘s Facebook page back on February 10, 2021:
“H.E.A.T are opening a new (old) big chapter of their wonderful history! On Friday, they’re going to release their single “Rise” with returning singer Kenny Leckremo. We believe this is brilliant! We have been discussing this morning about which other band has recorded a song from their repertoire with a new singer. We can only think of Hush by Deep Purple. Do you remember anybody else?”
Back on October 30, 2020, H.E.A.T made the shock announcement that Leckremo was returning to the band and replacing Grönwall who had handled the lea vocals on the group’s last four studio albums — Address The Nation (2012), Tearing Down The Walls (2014), Into The Great Unknown (2017) and H.E.A.T II (2020). Leckremo was the singer on H.E.A.T‘s first two studio albums — H.E.A.T (2008) and Freedom Rock (2010).
