Pre-save / pre-order right here.
‘Feel The Heat’ promises to be Nitrate’s most sensational offering to date, featuring eleven anthemic and hook-filled tracks that will undoubtedly leave listeners craving for more. Produced and mixed by the renowned Martin Bros Productions (ex-Vega), the album showcases the exceptional talent of the band members who poured their hearts and souls into crafting this masterpiece.
Bassist Nick Hogg expresses his enthusiasm for the album, stating, “There is a real buzz of excitement within the Nitrate camp like never before, and we can’t wait for the album to finally hit the stores. This is ‘hand on heart’ the best album we have written and recorded, while Tom and James [Martin, ex-Vega] have devoted every waking moment over the past year to make the production the very best it can be.”
‘Feel The Heat’ boasts impressive collaborations, including a duet and backing vocals by the highly regarded Norwegian rock singer, Issa, as well as additional backing vocals by Paul Laine (Danger Danger/The Defiants), Leon Robert Winteringham (LRW Project), and Alan Clark (Change Of Heart). Furthermore, one of the songs is a co-write with Bob Mitchell, known for co-writing the hit ‘The Flame’ by Cheap Trick, while two others were co-written with the talented Rob Wylde (Midnite City/Tigertailz).
Nitrate’s musical influences, drawing inspiration from the late ’80s rock scene, shine through their sound, making it a thrilling experience for fans of bands like Def Leppard, Europe, Journey, and Bon Jovi.
