HEARTIST || DEBUT ALBUM 'FEEDING FICTION' SET FOR AUGUST 11 RELEASE. MORE INFO & TRACKLISTING INSIDE!
Posted on June 20, 2014Roadrunner Records group Heartist has announced details of their eagerly awaited debut album. "FEEDING FICTION" - the explosive first full-length release from the Southern California group - arrives on August 11.
Produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon), "FEEDING FICTION" is available now for pre-order on the iTunes Store, with all pre-orders receiving instant downloads of the powerful new tracks, "Skeletons," "Pressure Point" and "Black Cloud." Special merch bundles are also available at Heartist's Official Webstore.
Known for their energetic and engaging live performances, Heartist are currently prepping for a major North American tour in support of Set It Off and Our Last Night's "Come Alive Tour." The multi-artist trek is set to get underway July 11th at Murray Hill Theater in Jacksonville, FL then continue through mid-August (see attached itinerary).
Equal parts anthemic grandeur, brawny metalcore-infused heaviness, and chorus-driven radio rock nirvana, "FEEDING FICTION" is Heartist at their absolute best. With each song boasting a towering chorus that demands to be unleashed in arenas and stadiums, it is rich with hooks and chunky riffs, and vocalist Bryce Beckley's candid lyrics and soaring vocals aim to bring real, honest emotion back into heavy music.
"We started this band because we looked around and everything seemed stagnant, everyone just seemed to be doing the same thing, and I haven't heard a song on the radio that's really touched my soul in what seems like forever," states Beckley. "We want people to hear us and go wow, holy shit, that's what's been missing."
Formed in 2011, the members of Heartist walked away from college educations and secure employment to focus one hundred percent on music. They subsequently spent several months honing their sound, determined to create something that stood out on its own merits. In 2012 the band dropped their "Nothing You Didn't Deserve" EP via Roadrunner Records and subsequently toured with the likes of Architects UK and Enter Shikari including a European run supporting label mates Killswitch Engage. Heartist has also shared stages across the US with Blessthefall, Silverstein, Secrets and label mates The Amity Affliction.
