Heaven Shall Burn Announce New Album and Release Shows

02/01/2013
.
Heaven Shall Burn have set release dates around the world for their new studio album, Veto, and have also lined up three release shows in Europe.

The album will be released in North America on April 30th, Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Norway on April 19th, Australia / New Zealand / Finland on April 26th and the rest of Europe on April 22nd.

The band learned the sad news this week that the man who inspired one of the songs on the album had passed away on Tuesday. Guitarist Maik Weichert had this to say, "Just while finalizing the very last bits and pieces for 'VETO' we received the sad news that Walter Schilling passed away in Saalfeld on January 29th. Walter Schilling was a Protestant pastor and civil rights activist in the GDR (former East Germany). We have a new song called 'Antagonized' that is about him, his life and his work in Thuringia.

"It might seem odd that a band called Heaven Shall Burn is dedicating a song to a man of the church. Still, Schilling was never into clerical dogmas. Instead he encouraged and helped teenagers to pursue new and alternative cultural ideas under the protective shield of his church and youth centre in Braunsdorf near Saalfeld.

"Without Walter Schilling a huge part of the youth culture and music in Thuringia wouldn't have happened - this probably goes for the GDR in general. No matter if you liked Blues, played Punk or Metal, every single person was welcome in Braunsdorf, Saalfeld, Rudolstadt or Jena. Schilling helped establishing what enabled HSB to play music, because most of the clubs and musicians that supported us in our very early days were directly or indirectly involved with Schilling's work. You will not find many theologians of Walter's kind."

He had this to say about the new album, "We cannot wait to play the album to people! It turned out very diverse, it's melodic, emotional and brutal at the same time. Several guests visited us in the studio for additional performances, so you can look forward to some interesting twists!"
