Finland’s Von Hertzen Brothers return to the UK with a full headline tour in March on the back of their latest album’s success.
Released in March last year, ‘New Day Rising’ was nominated for the Classic Rock Album of The Year Award and led the way to the band’s first ever performance at Download.
Now Mikko, Jonne, and Kie Von Hertzen are hitting venues across the country including Brooklyn Bowl in London on 18 March 2016.
Formed in 2000, the band broke into the international music scene with 2011’s ‘Stars Aligned’. They’ve since appeared across Europe with Opeth, and supported bands like Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds To Mars, and Neil Young.
Their fifth album, 2013’s ‘Nine Lives’, spawned three singles – ‘Flowers and Rust’, ‘Insomniac’, and ‘Coming Home’ – that all received airplay on UK rock-oriented stations. ‘Flowers And Rust’ won Anthem Of The Year at the 2013 Progressive Rock Awards in London.
For ‘New Day Rising’, their sixth album, the brothers plus drummer Mikko Kaakkuriniemi and keyboard player Juha Kuoppala, travelled to Vancouver in Canada to work with producer Garth ‘GGGarth’ Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Biffy Clyro) at Little Mountain Studios.
“We were local for three albums, the fourth one got us a leg up in the UK, the fifth one took us even further, and with album number six we’re ready for the world. And our instincts tell us the world is ready for us,” said Mikko Von Hertzen when ‘New Day Rising’ was released.
