Joe Retta says: “Rock and the blues have had a huge influence on our music. With sexy grooves and powerful attitudes, these tunes reflect the time with soulful power and lyrical punch.”
Stuart Smith adds “I feel this is the most powerful and exciting Heaven & Earth album to date and we’re looking forward to bringing the music to the fans.”
Taking Hard to Kill as a whole, the 11 original songs ring true and the melodies unfold like you’ve known them your whole life. The title track is a testament to perseverance, while “L.A. Blues” exposes the pitfalls of living in the City of Angels. And while “The Game Has Changed” dramatically contrasts the past with the present, the riveting “Monster” shows that the spirit of hard rock is indeed hard to kill. Meanwhile, “Til It’s Over” will earn the admiration of longtime rock listeners, just as the attitude in “Bleed Me Dry” and “Walk Away” will speak to any modern music fan.
