URIAH HEEP - Outside -- CD RELEASE
Uriah Heep has announced that their new studio album, Outsider, will be released by Frontiers Records on June 10th in North America, June 6th in Europe and on June 9th in their native UK.
The band's founding member and guitarist Mick Box had this to say about the album, "We are very proud of our history, but it is equally important to keep producing new material.
"This new album, Outsider, is very much a rock album in true 'Heep' style. It shows that we still have the same passion and energy for our music that we have always had."
The new album, the band's 24th studio effort, was produced by Mike Paxman (Asia, Status Quo) and features the band's new bass player Dave Rimmer, who replaced the late Trevor Bolder.
Box had this to say about his late bandmate Bolder: "We lost a world class bass player, singer, songwriter and friend. While Trevor was ill, he wanted us to continue working, so we used a bass player called Dave Rimmer, who Trevor approved of. It was only natural that Dave carried on with the band."
The band plans to launch a world tour in support of the new album
