Swindon, UK’s THE DEAD LAY WAITING (TDLW) is pleased to announce the November 29th, 2011 United States release of their new album, Almost Heaven, with UK label Rising Records. Almost Heaven was released in June 2011 in the UK, featuring 14 tracks and 60 minutes of pulsating music. The album also marks the return of Barry Clayton, the voice behind the now well known intro to Iron Maiden’s Number Of The Beast. The band’s first music video from the album, ‘The Days I’m Gone,’ reached #6 in the Scuzz TV playlist, and the band is planning to release a second video for the track ‘Burnt to Ashes’. Streaming tracks from Almost Heaven are available now at the band’s YouTube page.
THE DEAD LAY WAITING began writing music together in 2007, almost immediately making an instant impact on the local scene and securing support slots for visiting bands. With a progressive-edged sound featuring complex and fresh riffs, combined with aggressive approaches and catchy vocal lines, the band quickly earned themselves a reputation for pushing their way through the dredged beds of the UK’s underground rock scene in order to become its new, great shining hope.
