Uriah Heep - Official Web Site




Released 23 NOVEMBER 2018.


BMG are continuing their 'Art Of The Album' series with one of the defining heavy rock albums of the 1970's. Uriah Heep were in the middle of a productive period of their long and illustrious career with this, their 4th album. Released during their creative peak in 1972, 'Demons And Wizards' captures a magical time in the music world and considers fantastical possibilities as barriers were broken down by space travel and supersonic transportation became a reality. These events were reflected by bands such as Uriah Heep with imaginations rich in imagery and with a broad musical range.

Roger Dean is widely seen as one of the masters of 12" album cover art from this time, not only working with Uriah Heep but also Yes and many others. Roger Dean: “'Demons And Wizards' had a magical cover, and although people didn’t necessarily believe in magic back then, they believed in possibilities, and that’s what was most fascinating about that time to me.”

Both Mick Box and Ken Hensley from Uriah Heep agree that Roger's 'Demons And Wizards' artwork visually captured the band and their music at their peak. This new 180 g vinyl re-release (re-mastered by Andy Pearce) features detailed new notes by Joel McIver, which perfectly captures the times this album represents and reveals the story behind the making of the artwork.

“‘Demons and Wizards’ really took us on to the world stage and we have been there ever since, so we have a lot to thank that album for.

It really has truly stood the test of time. Mick Box URIAH HEEP”

Uriah Heep returns with powerful new release: Outsider

Uriah Heep, one of the pivotal hard rock groups to emerge from England in the late 1960s returns with Outsider, its 24th studio album, and the first since 2011’s critically acclaimed Into the Wild album. Outsider will be released on June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK and June 10th in North America on Frontiers Records.

“We are very proud of our history” says founder/guitarist Mick Box, “but it is equally important to keep producing new material. This new album, Outsider, is very much a rock album in true 'Heep' style. It shows that we still have the same passion and energy for our music that we have always had.”

From the opening chords of the album’s hard driving rocker, “Speed of Sound”, to the more introspective closer, “Say Goodbye”, Outsider proves that Uriah Heep has remained a musical powerhouse, and one that can effectively balance its legendary sound with a distinctly contemporary approach. The record, which was produced by Mike Paxman (Asia, Status Quo), also introduces bassist Dave Rimmer, who joined the band last summer after the untimely death of long time member, Trevor Bolder.

Says Box of his late friend, Bolder: “We lost a world class bass player, singer, songwriter and friend. While Trevor was ill, he wanted us to continue working, so we used a bass player called Dave Rimmer, who Trevor approved of. It was only natural that Dave carried on with the band.”

After major tours of Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and South America, upon the release of Outsider, Uriah Heep will launch a world tour that will take in many continents as the band promotes the new album to an eager international audience.

Formed in London in 1969 by guitarist Mick Box and late singer David Byron as “Spice”, the group evolved into Uriah Heep (the name was taken from a character in Charles Dickens’ novel David Copperfield) when they began conceptualizing the first record. The album Very ‘eavy, Very ‘umble, launched the band’s distinct sound in 1970, one that was built around layered harmony vocals, swirling keyboards, and heavy guitar riffs. Current lead singer Bernie Shaw and keyboardist Phil Lanzon have been ever present since the mid 1980s, and drummer Russell Gilbrook joined Uriah Heep in 2007.

The band's repertoire features hits over five decades from the 70s through to the present day including tracks such as; “Gypsy”, “ Easy Livin'”, “July Morning”, “Look At Yourself”, “Stealin’” and “Lady in Black”, which went to #1 in Germany on three different occasions, and once stayed at #1 for 6 months. They have gone on to sell 40 million records, and have toured globally for 5 decades, visiting no less than 56 countries, headlining numerous festivals and arena tours, including being the first western rock band to play Russia, in 1987. Founder Mick Box has remained throughout.

My family from Finland have been the fans of Uriah Heep for over 30 years, and I have met the members of Uriah Heep for the first time when I was two years old (in the year 1995).

So we have known the band for guite a many years.

My family introduced my uncle to Uriah Heep and he was very excited about it. He has his own truck corporation and so we wanted to design one of his truck with Uriah Heep artwork to honour their long career and their great music.

And my uncle travels a lot because of his truck corporation so he knows how hard it is to travel for many years all over the world. This Uriah Heep truck is going to travel all over Finland every day.

Kind Regards,

Katerina Mantila
