Reckless Love release video for latest single Night On Fire, taken from upcoming untitled third album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 29th April 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

The flamboyant Finnish rockers Reckless Love, who burst spectacularly onto the UK scene in 2010, have released their brand new single and video, Night On Fire, today via Spinefarm Records. The song is taken from their upcoming third studio album (the title is yet to be revealed), which sees the four pushing their signature blend of sleaze-rock riffs and huge commercial choruses to even greater heights. Frontman Olli Herman says:

Night On Fire is the pure essence of Reckless Love; a deceitfully catchy tune with an awesome big sing-along chorus and a fierce guitar solo. It embodies all of our biggest ’80s influences from KISS and Van Halen to Def Leppard and Europe. Night On Fire also has this exotic Shakira-esque groove to it, which’ll make you dance, or if dancing ain’t your cup of tea, nod your head until you break your neck!

The video for Night On Fire was shot over consecutive nights in the Canary Islands following a full week in Las Palmas, “lazing around, taking it easy, enjoying cold beer and hot weather,” according to Olli – it’s alright for some Production credits include award-winning film director Marko Mäkilaakso (known for both his music videos and his feature-length films, such as Deadly Descent, War Of The Dead, etc.), cinematographer Juge Heikkilä, and producer Teemu Virta for Twisted Films Inc. Frontman Olli continues:

We all have active and vivid imaginations, but we wanted to keep things pretty simple for the video – we’re portrayed as a demonic product of Baron Samedi, a spirit god of Haitian Voodoo. This is the ‘dark side’ of Reckless Love… Hahaha.

A full UK headline tour is scheduled for the autumn of 2013, with selected festival appearances also being discussed. Previously, Reckless Love have appeared at the Download and Firefest events over here in the UK, as well as headlining tours, playing London residencies, touring with Black Veil Brides and releasing such irresistible singles and videos such as Beautiful Bomb, Romance and Hot.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 24th August 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Having earned the title of one of the UK’s most promising hard rock acts thanks to their relentless touring schedule Heaven’s Basement announce their appearance as main support to Seether on their Autumn European tour, including four UK dates.

Black Veil Brides W/Support @ Manchester Academy [Live Review]

Posted in Gig, Live with tags , , , , , , on 23rd October 2011 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Bands: Black Veil Brides, My Passion, Yashin
Location: Manchester Academy, Manchester
Date: 11th October

After hearing about a lot about this new band from Hollywood, California called Black Veil Brides making a big statement about being the indifferent and with  countless articles in Kerrang Magazine I thought I would go check them out for myself. Before going to the gig I can say that I had heard Knives and Pens and Perfect Weapon which were average songs and didn’t seem all the rush to me.

Touring with Black Veil Brides was My Passion (solo tours and will be touring with Madina Lake soon!) and Yashin (toured with the likes of KoRn). The first act would be My Passion which had had mix reports and views on while I was waiting outside of the venue,they seemed to be pretty much in the middle this band with a lot of people liking them and a lot not, I was pretty excited to see this band again from the last time when I saw them in Liverpool on the Red Bull tour just before they got famous so to see now far and what they were like now would be very interesting. When making their entrance on the stage there was a lot of booing which does seem pointless as they are the ones walking away with a little bit of your money so might as well endure it, the stage was blacked out and lit up again with a bright florescence blue colour each one making their way onto the stage. the lead singer Simon Rowlands coming on last with a white coat and glow in the dark shades. the band kicked off with a song I didn’t recognise but that is probably because they had a new album set to come out so I think that they were playing new songs to promote it.. The performance as a whole would definitely 4 out of 5, they kept the crowd entertained (despite the booing) and of course all of them had a lot of energy for the stage. My opinion were very good and would definitely suggest that you go and see them. They finished with their signature song The Girl Who Lost there smile.

I didn’t not get to see Yashin due to complication, leaving the next to come on was Black Veil Brides. After waiting 30 minutes for the band to come on the stage blacked out and the up roar of fans (who had to mimic his make-up) and opening with a song from there new album which was average, they played a couple of songs and a drummer solo one that they did do was a cover of Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell which was very good but unfortunately that strike didn’t last long with only completing 8 songs on the list (INCLUDING THE DRUMMER SOLO) I was disappointed and would say that Black Veil Brides are nothing really specially but to the people that they do touch the BVB Army, then it good for them I totally support what they are promoting with the indifference theme but I think to get the most out of this gig you have to adore the band otherwise it was not a very entertaining show. The front man Andy Sixx also seemed not on form and something was missing, due to this fact I would go and see them again as I think that they could perform better and possible do a good show. I would award BVB a 2 out of 5 for this show.

I would like thank My Passion for helping my sister get through her panic attack after their performance. – Definitely go and check these out with Madina Lake.
