(New York, NY) – Hot off the heels of their sold out, jam-packed, first-ever show in New York City, a debut that Loudwire called “electric” and “exhilarating”, rising UK hard rockersHeaven’s Basement are now poised to take their explosive live set to the masses in the United States. This May Heaven’s Basement will be featured on the bill of such major U.S. rock festivals as Rocklahoma, Rock On The Range, Carolina Rebellion, Rockfest and UFest.  The British quartet will also serve as main support for Buckcherry on their upcoming tour, including a return to NYC on May 23rd at Irving Plaza.  In addition to dates with Buckcherry, they will play a string of club shows with The Last Vegas.  Please see below for the itinerary.

In addition to their electrifying New York City show, the band took SXSW by storm with buzzed- about showcases, for which Kerrang awarded a KKKKK review and raved, “Heaven’s Basement have too many huge tunes, too much talent and an unwavering will to work their asses off for this to be anything other than the start of a wild ride for them.”  Austin was immediately followed by a whirlwind trip to Quebec City where the band performed at the world finals for Red Bull Crashed Ice in front of 100,000 people followed by two rousing showcases at Canadian Music Week in Toronto.  The band will spend the entirety of April in Europe as direct support to Black Veil Brides, with festival dates booked for June and July in the UK and Europe.

Heaven’s Basement‘s debut album, FILTHY EMPIRE (Red Bull Records), is in stores now.  Both it and the band have been receiving stellar reviews from the press and fans alike. Outburn declared, “On the strength of their kick-ass live show, Heaven’s Basement has seen their popularity and profile propel upward like a shot from a flare gun…” while The Aquarian avowed, “With this full-length debut, the band has made an explosive entrance onto the modern rock scene…”  The band was also recently profiled in both Revolver and Guitar World, with Revolver dubbing them a “Band To Watch.”  FILTHY EMPIRE was produced by John Feldmann (The Used, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides).  The first single, “Fire, Fire,” which is currently in the Top 10 on Sirius XM Octane is impacting Active Rock radio on April 23rd.  The track also reached #8 on the CMJ Loud Rock Chart.  Check out the video for the single, directed by Michael Maxxis (Ours, Sum 41, and Our Lady Peace), here.  Another track “I Am Electric” was recently used in the new “Need For Speed Most Wanted” video game and its trailer which can be seen here.

Heaven’s Basement have been making a name for themselves via their relentless touring and fiery live show plus music that features huge guitar riffs, killer melodies and an arena-rock sound.  Originally formed in the East Midlands in England, Heaven’s Basement have also toured the U.K. and Europe with the likes of Papa Roach, Theory Of A Deadman, Shinedown, Halestorm, Seether and more and played last year’s Download Festival in the UK to a packed tent of more than 5,000 fans.  Kerrang declared, “Heaven’s Basement play as if their lives depend on it.  They should already be a big name – bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison and exceptional is not too strong a word.”  Heaven’s Basement is Aaron Buchanan (vocals), Sid Glover (guitar), Rob Ellershaw (bass), and Chris Rivers (drums).
