May 31, 2009
Heaven’s Basement vocalist Richie Hevanz has posted the following blog updating fans with what the band is currently up to. Tour dates can be found at www.myspace.com/heavensbasementofficial.
“Greetings to everyone from the world of Heaven’s Basement, We’re currently enjoying a day off at Sid’s, the Sun is out and Beer is cold so everything is sweet! We have been at the studio the past few days rehearsing for the upcoming shows, everything is sounding heavy so we are ready to get cracking again.
First all off we just want to thank everyone that came to a show on the recent UK headline tour. Everywhere we’ve played the vibe has been amazing and probably goes someway to explain why the tour passed us by so fast! Time flies when your having fun and all that!!! some of the shows were the most insane we have ever done! It was great to have our first run of sold out shows. We also wanted to apologize to all the people who bought tickets for the Hull show. Our van decided to commit suicide at a point in the day when it was too late for us to effectively activate plan B. We promise to re schedule it on the next tour of Uk. We are already making plans for our next UK headline tour which will probably be towards the end of the year, we are looking at a few exciting options for it such as making it a co-headliner or maybe even a 3 band bill, we’ll keep you posted over the summer!
Incase you haven’t heard we are hitting the road with the mighty Black Stone Cherry starting tomorrow night in Swansea, we are so fired up for these shows! brace yourselves!! It’s gonna be fuckin awesome!! June and July are pretty hammered for us, you know us guys, we’re not the kind to just sit on our hands and do nothing ! After the Black Stone Cherry UK shows we will be heading to Bologna for a festival on the 5th June, followed by Middlesborough live festival then a few more UK shows with BSC before joining Shinedown as main support on their UK dates! I think we have 1 day off after the Shinedown shows then we head to Spain for 3 days to play to an estimated audience of 30,000 at the Metalway festival….good fucking times or what ?!?!
Once back in the UK we will have another few days of hanging around before we head to Holland for more shows with Black Stone Cherry + another exciting support slot in Holland which will be announced on the 12th June! after the last date in Holland we will be dragging our arses over to Hamburg to join Tesla’s german tour as main support which is excellent as it gives us another chance to go back and see some of the friends we made in Germany. The machine will carry on rolling in the UK when we get back from German as we will be jumping on 3 UK shows with D’espairs Ray from Japan. Unfortunately we had to cancel our appearance at the Hard Rock Laager festival in Estonia due to the Tesla shows however, we are booking a 2 week long tour of Scandinavia and the Baltics for later in the year so we will defiantly make it over to Estonia at some point.
The tour diary is filling everyday for us at the moment, we have some really good stuff in the pipeline so keep checking back for updates and all that! At the moment it’s looking like our only time off this year could be the second half of August and some of December!!Just one more thing, A few of you have asked about if we are playing Download festival this year, unfortunately we won’t be but we will be there next year! We actually had a festival booked in Vietnam for the weekend of Download Festival but it has been put on hold until a later date.
Thats about it really. Just going to spend the day today enjoying the sun and resting my pipes and re-charging so that the upcoming shows are the absolute bollocks!! We accept nothing less!
Don’t forget our E.P is now available on Itunes, if you don’t have a copy go get a copy and blast it like crazy motherfuckers at every opportunity! The itunes version has ‘Can’t Let Go’ as a bonus track…….’Can’t Let Go’ is also available as a limited edition cd single with ‘Misunderstood’ as the B-side but you’ll only be able to buy a copy at one of our shows.
But of course you can’t have a new single out without new clothes to wear so we’ve also got two brand new tshirts available. Check our online store here if you want one now www.backstreet-merch.com/bands/hvnbt or you can pick one up and any of the upcoming shows
Can’t wait to see you guys! Be good, and if you can’t be good….Take pictures!!!”
