NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- Chop Shop/Atlantic Records has announced the upcoming release of "HEART ON FIRE," the eagerly anticipated new EP from Scars on 45. The four-track collection is streaming exclusively at PasteMagazine.com now (http://bit.ly/o0M8ua) and arrives at all digital retailers on October 24th.
The "HEART ON FIRE" EP is highlighted by the extraordinary title track, which is currently ascending the Hot AC charts and has now reached the Top 15 at Triple A radio outlets nationwide. "Heart On Fire" is also featured on Chop Shop/Atlantic's recently released "GREY'S ANATOMY ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK VOLUME 4," the first new collection of music from and inspired by the hit ABC series in four years. In addition, "Heart On Fire" was heard throughout the summer in ABC's promotional campaign celebrating the series' new season. Previous songs highlighted in ABC's Grey's Anatomy promos include such breakthrough hits as Snow Patrol's "Counting Cars" and The Fray's "How To Save A Life."
What's more, both Scars on 45 and "Heart on Fire" have earned rapturous critical acclaim, with Entertainment Weekly recently naming the track in their "The Must List," noting that "you probably heard this rising Leeds quintet's dewy-eyed piece of Britpop... and still can't get it out of your head." A recent "On The Verge" feature in USA Today hailed Scars on 45 for their "emotional ballads and sweeping melodies," while Spin included the band in their "Next Big Things" issue based upon their "gorgeous melodies reminiscent of Coldplay."
Scars on 45 will herald the "HEART ON FIRE" EP with a series of North American tours, including dates alongside Matt Nathanson beginning October 18th at The Pageant in St. Louis (see itinerary below). The Bradford, England-based quintet -- who recently wrapped a major North American tour alongside fellow Atlantic recording artist Marc Broussard -- will then join Jack's Mannequin for a slate of shows set to kick off on November 7th at San Francisco's Regency Ballroom. The tour will conclude with a hugely anticipated headline show at New York City's Rockwood Music Hall on November 21st -- for complete details, please visit www.scarson45.com.
Scars on 45 spent their early days together in a small studio space in Bradford, writing and recording a series of songs that brilliantly blended insistent melodies, uplifting energy, and enchanting co-ed vocals courtesy of singers Danny Bemrose and Aimee Driver. After a number of tracks were featured on such TV series as The Cleaner and CSI: New York, Scars on 45 were personally signed to Chop Shop Records by label founder Alexandra Patsavas, famed music supervisor for such films and TV shows as Twilight, Gossip Girl, and Grey's Anatomy.
Scars on 45's acclaimed Chop Shop/Atlantic debut EP, "GIVE ME SOMETHING," was released in January 2011 and quickly proved a sensation with its title track receiving Top 5 airplay at Triple A radio outlets nationwide (peaking at #3 and placing the band among such like-minded artists as Adele, Coldplay, and Atlantic's own Death Cab for Cutie). "Give Me Something" remains a popular favorite, currently standing tall at #3 on Amazon.com's "Best Songs of 2011 So Far" listing.
Having spent much of the past year on the road -- including multiple radio-sponsored events and music festivals such as Austin, Texas' world famous South by Southwest -- Scars on 45 is now slated to unveil its much-anticipated full-length debut album in early 2012.
Scars on 45 is: Danny Bemrose (vocals/guitar), Aimee Driver (vocals), David "Nova" Nowakowski (keyboards), Stuart Nichols (bass), Chris Durling (drums)
