UK hard rockers Heaven’s Basement are getting ready to head over to the United States for a slew of festivals as well as dates supporting Buckcherry.  The band’s debut album Filthy Empire is out now and you can check out the video for “Fire, Fire” below.

If you’ve followed the Need for Speed series as well you may have heard the band without realizing it.  Their song “I Am Electric” was used in the launch trailer for Need for Speed Most Wanted (below) and is also featured in the game itself. Check out the full list of dates and more details below.

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 rockers Heaven’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.  Dates are as follows:

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. The album 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.
