+ THIRD ORIANTHI STUDIO ALBUM, ‘HEAVEN IN THIS HELL’, PRIMED FOR RELEASE VIA SPINEFARM / ROBO RECORDS MARCH 11TH 2013
Platinum-selling solo artist and iconic guitarist Orianthi will continue as a key member of Alice Cooper’s band for what is expected to be AC’s sole UK appearance of 2013 – a headline outing at Cropredy Festival in Oxfordshire (Cropredy is an annual event launched by UK folk legends Fairport Convention back in 1980; this year it runs from August 8th – 10th, with Alice topping the bill on the 8th).
Having been a part of Alice’s live set-up since August 2011, completing two world tours in this role, Orianthi is used to trading musical blows with this true master of horror!
Meanwhile, Orianthi is gearing up for the release of her new album, ‘Heaven In This Hell’; produced by Dave Stewart, the record will be released on Spinefarm Records/Robo Records, and is scheduled to drop on March 11th 2013.
‘Heaven In This Hell’ – Orinathi’s third solo outing following ‘Violet Journey’ (2007) & ‘Believe’ (2010) – delivers a mega-dose of rock, weaving in elements of modern country & swampy blues.
“I am so proud of this album because it really showcases my style of riff heavy rock and energetic blues,” Orianthi remarks. “The success of ‘Believe’ helped to give me credibility and afforded me the freedom to create the kind of album I have been wanting to make, with musicians I respect, playing together live in a studio, creatively exchanging ideas… the way I want all my records to be made. My friend, collaborator and producer, Dave Stewart and I just jammed and hashed out a variety of songs and sounds until we found the grooves that inspired us.”
The iTunes version of the album comes complete with two bonus tracks.
