Hardline have announced the release of their new studio album, Heart, Mind And Soul on July 9, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the band has also announced the release of the first single and video from the album, ‘Fuel To The Fire’.
“This album is a true reflection of who we are and what we care about. I’m always amazed, despite what some critics may say, that we have the strength and power to push through the way we believe and want to. That will never change with this band. It’s a very, very special band chemistry we have here,” says vocalist Johnny Gioeli.
Of the first single from the album, Gioeli says, “‘Fuel To The Fire’ was inspired by that one person who just knows how to push your buttons. You know who you are….the last word…always right. We have all had that person in our life at some point. This song takes a lyric twist as I add MY fuel to the fire. Enjoy….and use it as therapy the next time someone gets under your skin who doesn’t deserve to be there.”
Ever since the release of their widely heralded album Danger Zone in 2012, Hardline have been offering a straight-ahead, gritty, riff-based melodic hard rock sound which is a continuing evolution from what was on offer in the band’s early days. What you get here on their new studio album is a group of musicians who are perfectly gelled as a unit and determined to display a sound that is immediate and powerful. Adding their own personality and imprint to the music, the band has created a perfect balance between these anthemic, hard rocking songs. You can expect hook after hook and riff after riff as you take a ride with Hardline via Heart, Mind And Soul.
