Suite à l'annonce de URIAH HEPP sur le départ de leur batteur Lee Kerslake, le groupe vient d'annoncer l'arrivée de Russell Gilbrook.
"Russell is regarded as one of the UK’s finest drummers and clinician’s and has demonstrated specialist drum clinics all over Europe. He has worked with such diverse artists as Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Van Morrison, John Farnham, Alan Price, Chris Barber and Lonnie Donnigan.
Russell comments: “I am really excited to be joining a band with such a fantastic history and quality of musicianship and musicality. I am just as excited to be a part of the band’s progress into the future, and I cannot wait to get in the Recording Studio because the songs we have already worked on are fantastic. This will hopefully take the band to a new level. I hope the fans will enjoy my playing and singing as much as the band and welcome me as a member of Uriah Heep.”
Mick Box, founding member comments: “Russell came to the auditon and blew us all away. He is one of the heaviest drummers I have ever heard. We spent two days auditoning a shortlist of twelve drummers from 120 applicants and once Russell started playing we just knew he was the man for the job. There were smiles all around and he made the drum stool his. We were never looking for a clone of Lee Kerslake as that would have been an impossible task as there is only one Lee. Had we taken that stance we would have in effect stood still. We were looking for someone who can come into the band and energise it and have a wealth of ideas, especially for the new songs and give us a new lease of life. Russell did just that and his appointment comes at the start of an exciting new phase in the band’s career’. We hope the fans will feel the same way once they have heard him play and sing.”
Dans la foulée, URIAH HEEP commence l'enregistrement de leur nouvel album studio, le premier depuis neuf ans ("Sonic Origami") au Chapel Studio de Lincolnshire, sous la houlette du producteur Mike Paxman. Il s'agira donc de leur 21ème album !
