Official press release:Despised Icon
founding/guitarist Eric Jarrin
rejoins Canadian Prog band Heaven's Cry
, which is reforming after a seven-year break. The band will perform at the legendary Montreal club, Les Foufounes Electriques, on September 18th 2011 as support act for Swedish band, Katatonia.
Originating from Montreal PQ, Heaven's Cry gained worldwide recognition with their first album "Food For Thought Substitute" in 1997, and is currently working on a third album.
Their second effort, "Primal Power Addiction" released in 2002, exceeded the success of their debut album which propelled the band to tour Europe the same year and to support many international acts in Canada.
The re-formed band will include Pierre St-Jean, Sylvain Auclair, Eric Jarrin and René Lacharité.
"The idea of playing again together is extremely exciting." Eric Jarrin said. "We all went our separate ways for the past six or seven years, and to come back to work on a new album with everyone's experiences and successes is really promising! But I wish to warn all Despised Icon fans, this has nothing to do with my previous work. This is a completely different genre, a very contrasting musical venture for me."
Heaven's Cry is scheduled to record their third album early next year.
