August 2, 2020, 3 days ago
Sea Of Tranquility founder Pete Pardo recently caught up with Uriah Heep guitarist Mick Box and bassist Davey Rimmer, who discussed work on their next studio album. Check out the interview below.
Rimmer: "With this downtime, I think it's given us all a chance to think about the next album. Living The Dream (previous album) was such fun to make; it went so well and, as Mick will tell you, was a great experience to make. Now I'm really looking forward to going in and starting the next one, which I think we're gonna start it early next year."
Box: "I think we're planning to go in in February. Pre-production in January, recording in February. The release is all down to the record company, I've gotta be honest. We never get a shout on that. They always seem to have some reason to release it at this time, that time, whatever time, ut the good news is there will be a new album, and it will be released, which is great."
Uriah Heep announced an extensive UK tour in November to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. A video trailer can be found below.
