Uriah Heep Will Release First Album in a Decade

"Multi-million selling rock legends Uriah Heep release first new studio album in 10 years on Aug. 26

Noise/Sanctuary Records announce the release of the new studio album Wake The Sleeper from the hard rock legends Uriah Heep on Aug. 26, 2008.

Wake The Sleeper will be Uriah Heeps first studio album in almost 10 years (the first since Sonic Origami in 1998) and the band is ready to embark on an exciting new phase of their career with this release. Wake The Sleeper puts Uriah Heep back at their very best and is sure to become a classic.

Their current sound is guaranteed to please their dedicated fan base worldwide as well as fans of progressive rock.
Recorded in 2007, the album was produced by Mike Paxman (Status Quo, Judie Tzuke).

The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, toured in 52 countries and established themselves as accomplished live performers. No strangers to being at the No.1 spot, Uriah Heep made history when they were the first British rock band to play Russia in 1987. Uriah Heep is currently on tour in Europe and will tour the U.S. in early 2009.

This is the first studio album without their long-standing and original drummer, Lee Kerslake, who unfortunately had to leave the band due to poor health in January 2007. The band has recruited a replacement, acclaimed drummer
Russell Gilbrook (Tony Iommi/Black Sabbath, Van Morrison, John Farnham and Lonnie Donnegan). The current band lineup is

Mick Box Guitar
Trevor  Bolder Bass
Phil Lanzon Keyboards
Bernie Shaw Lead Vocals
Russell Gilbrook Drums

Guitarist Mick Box commented on the bands latest work, Wake The Sleeper is an album we are incredibly proud of, and one that we hope the fans will see as one of Uriah Heeps best.

Full album track listing as follows:

1 Wake The Sleeper
2 Overload
3 Tears Of the World
4 Light Of A Thousand Stars
5 Heavens Rain
6 Book Of Lies
7 What Kind Of God
8 Ghost Of The Ocean
9 Angels Walk With You
10 Shadow
11 War Child

Uriah Heeps progressive heavy metal made the band one of the most notorious hard rock groups of the early 70s. Initially formed by guitarist Mick Box and vocalist David Byron in the late 60s, Uriah Heep released their debut album, Very eavyVery umble, in 1970. From then on, the band has released 20 studio albums and played for millions of fans across the globe. Wake The Sleeper will be Uriah Heeps 21st studio album, and will further the bands standing as rock music legends.
