International Heroic Rock & Metal Band – A HERO FOR THE WORLD – has today announced the release date of their upcoming EP “On Fire”
This is their first followup to the critically acclaimed self-titled debut album released earlier this year.
The EP will be released by Jacob K Music on October 8th 2013.
It will be available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody, Zune, Google Play, Xbox, Rdio, Deezer, Simfy, Muve Music, iHeartRadio, Nokia, MediaNet, Vervelife, Wimp, Sony, Gracenote, Shazam, 7Digital, Juke, eMusic and more.
“On Fire” includes two new heroic anthems:
“Save the World from Fire” a mid-tempo rocker with a persistent call-to-action
and “Die (If You Stand In My Way)”; a song for the enemy, both a warning and a promise.
The epic ballad “Mahal Kita” marks A Hero For The World as the first International Rock/Metal band to record a song in Taglish; a mix of Tagalog Filipino language and English.
Other notable tracks among the many bonus tracks include a unique live acoustic rendition of the band’s 2012 hit song “Eternal Shadows” and the orchestral “A Hero For The World Main Theme”; an obscure track that was originally composed back in 2007 for an unreleased feature film project. This composition later paved the way for the band’s debut album.
“On Fire” – features the same lineup as on the debut album:
Jacob Kaasgaard – Vocals, Grand Piano, Keyboards, Composer
David Sivelind – Guitars
Andy Gentile – Drums
Louiebeth Aratan – Female Vocals
Recorded, Produced, Mixed & Mastered by Jacob Kaasgaard & David Sivelind at Paradise Power Studios, Philippines.
