Star Scene: Kenny Leckremo ~ H.E.A.T

Kenny Leckremo of H.E.A.T talks to What’s My Scene’s Mary Boukouvalas about the band’s latest album, Force Majeure, and their first ever Australian tour.

Scandinavia heads down under as Silverback Touring bring you one of Sweden’s finest Hard Rock exports H.E.A.T. This will be the first Australian Tour for H.E.A.T and the action takes place in September 2022.

Over the last several years H.E.A.T have established themselves as one of the leading bands in the melodic rock scene, both in their homeland Sweden and internationally. They have toured and performed front of thousands and thousands of fans around the world.

In April 2008, their self-titled debut album was released and became a massive vitamin injection for the genre and instantly received accolades from both fans and critics worldwide. The release was followed up by immense touring and H.E.A.T played with bands such as Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy and on big festivals like Sweden Rock. Since that time H.E.A.T have released a further 6 studio albums and have established themselves as a major force in the hard rock world.

During the Covid period, the band experienced a shift in personnel with original vocalist, Kenny Leckremo, returning to the fold replacing Erik Gronwoll. The band has a new album, Force Majeure, releasing on 5 August just in time for their Aussie visit.

“What can you say about H.E.A.T? If you don’t like these energetic Swedes you must be dead inside, as this year they’ve shown the UK crowd how to be the most complete band on the planet” – Classic Rock Magazine.

Local support comes from rising rock starlet, Cassidy Paris who fuses elements of melodic rock, pop punk and classic rock and is making noise all over the world as an artist to watch.
