The sophomore album by BURN HALO, UP FROM THE ASHES, was released today on Rawkhead Rekords (through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group) and can be heard in its entirety on AOL and Rockaccess.net.
Produced by Colby Wedgeworth, this new collection confirms BURN HALO’s evolution from being essentially a solo project by former 18 Visions singer/songwriter James Hart to a full-blown, collaborative band. The music has grown too, and now marries the anthemic, radio-ready hard rock of their 2009 self-titled debut to metalcore flourishes reminiscent of 18 Visions.
The band—-James Hart (vocals), Joey Roxx (guitar), Brandon Lynn (guitar), Aaron Boehler (bass), Dillon Ray (drums)—is receiving steady radio support for the first single, “Tear It Down,” from stations such as SiriusXM’s “Octane,”.
In touring news, the band is hitting the road next month for shows with label mates Egypt Central, as well as an appearance at the WJJO Band Camp show in Madison, WI on July 30, with more shows to be announced in the coming weeks.
