SHARE BRAND NEW TRACK ‘WORLD ON FIRE’
FROM THEIR SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM WHICH FOLLOWS ON SEPTEMBER 1ST
“Nodding to Pixies, Nirvana and The Smashing Pumpkins in a fuzz-emblazoned headrush.” – DIY
“Fast becoming one of the most irresistible bands on the scene.” – NME
“What we need now is a band willing to drown out everything we’ve seen – to distil all that pent up emotion, frustration and fear into a mixture that’ll take on the world. For that, we’ve got INHEAVEN.” – Dork
“Equal parts grunge, Britpop and shimmering 80s indebted dark pop.” – Clash
“INHEAVEN sound like the school kids in the stalls in the video for Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit are all grown up now and indeed making music of their very own.” – Metro
INHEAVEN’s incendiary set at Glastonbury this weekend prompted DIY to conclude “Today feels like this band are stepping up to even bigger things… it feels like a milestone moment.” It’s another example of INHEAVEN being picked as a highlight of a major festival after The Guardian’s review of The Great Escape declared: “INHEAVEN leave Brighton’s new music shindig shaking.”
The next step for INHEAVEN comes with the brand new track ‘World On Fire’ which was produced by Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, The Amazons) and recorded at Rockfield Studios. It further previews the September 1st release of their self-titled debut album after the feral rush of the recent single ‘Vultures’.
While ‘Vultures’ fired out from the starting blocks in a rush of barely controlled chaos, ‘World On Fire’ delivers INHEAVEN’s righteous fury in a tightly coiled ball of bold belligerence, raw riffs and blitzkrieg rhythms which swirl around vocalist/guitarist James Taylor’s rallying call-and-response cry of “Pray! Pray! Pray! Praying for the end of the world!”
By the moment vocalist/bassist Chloe Little hollers a bellicose defence of women’s rights with “My body’s mine you have no say on any choice I make today”, there’s no doubt that ‘World On Fire’ is INHEAVEN’s own anti-Trump anthem. It’s a statement of intent from a band who are unafraid to stand up for what they believe in.
With exclusive album bundles available to pre-order now from http://www.inheaven.co./, INHEAVEN’s debut is the sound of a band who are set to change the lives of teenagers the length and breadth of the nation, and beyond. The life-affirming energy of their music combined with their individualistic ethos combine to make a band worth investing in beyond simply adding a few tracks to your Spotify playlist.
INHEAVEN’s foundations were set when James Taylor and Chloe Little bonded over a shared love of bands who inspire young people to see the world in a different way. The pair embarked on an audio-visual project, recruiting their neighbour Jake Lucas on lead guitar and Joe Lazarus on drums. To test out their creative compatibility, Little put together a 30 second video of images and asked Taylor to write music over it.
Things clicked into place pretty fast as they wasted no time getting the word out in their own unique way. They set up a mysterious website with hidden videos, made fanzines, produced their own artwork, and sent their songs to blogs around the world. Things began to hot up for the band after the releases of their first official single ‘Regeneration’ on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records label.
That ascent continued unabated following live shows with Circa Waves, Jamie T and Blossoms, while Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Chris Martin and John Kennedy have all backed the band with radio play.
After Glastonbury, INHEAVEN’s summer continues with festival dates including the NME / BBC Radio 1 Stage at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in August. They’ll then embark upon a full UK tour in support of their album which includes their biggest London headline show to date at the Scala.
