I recently had the opportunity to talk with Patrick Kennison, formerly of Union Underground, and now fronting the L.A. rock band Heaven Below. The band just released a new EP, that’s actually not really an EP, as we find out in the interview. The album is stocked with six songs, and then 4 bonus tracks. Not to mention 5 videos, photos, lyrics, and more. Loaded! For a limited time you can get the album for $3.99 plus shipping.
Heaven Below’s sound springs off of hit arrangements and top Rock acts from the past 3 decades, giving listeners modern day power ballads that bring back the bite. The single, “When Daylight Dies,” produced by Ben Moody of Evanescence, is a clear demo of the bands capability to span the spectrum. They even take it to the next level for those back in the day hard rock lovers with a thrashing rendition of Pat Benatar’s Heartbreaker on this album.
“When Daylight Dies” was recently featured on L.A. Lloyd’s Rock 30, which is aired on over 20 stations nationwide. Heaven Below is picking up steam and is gearing up for a 2010 tour, which sounds promising. According to their bio, Kennison states, “Live, we set out to engage the audience with a video presentation that inter-plays our lyrics and song concepts through our performance. In this day and age we believe the audience deserves a full blown cathartic experience, bar none.” Sounds good to me! – *Chrystal
