Redlight King’s Heavy Heart

Rock outfit Redlight King has a new single out in ‘Heavy Heart’, taken off their fourth album In Our Blood, that’s due out on 3rd March 2023 via AFM Records.

‘Heavy Heart’ is a ballad depicting the sombre aftermath of a relationship and finding the will to move forward.

 “This song is very personal to me,” said band founder and frontman Kaz. “It reflects on a loving relationship that ended in heartbreak. The person in my life wasn’t able to communicate their true feelings and I’m not sure I was in a place to receive the message. It feels lonely because it is. There’s pain in losing someone you love and no amount of intuition or clarity can make it better, but writing this song helped me find closure and say what I needed to say in their absence.” 

There’s also a video for the song, that you can view here at RAMzine. Discussing it, Kaz said: “For me the video translates the solitude and cold nature of bearing a broken heart, and somehow in this sadness there is beauty. I feel the ability to love someone triumphs over losing them. The video was taken in and around Yosemite National Park, Northern California by Strati Hovartos.” 

Redlight King has developed a worldwide fanbase since their formation in 2009, performing over 1,000 shows with some of the biggest names in rock and being seen at festivals in North America, UK and Europe as well as late-night TV appearances on Late Night With Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

Forthcoming new album In Our Blood is said to see the band reach “soaring new highs with a clutch of revved-up, guitar-powered bangers that bring forth challenging, complex themes with a defiant undercurrent of hope.”

The album was written and produced by Kaz, at The Wheelhouse in Los Angeles with longtime collaborator and guitarist Julian Tomarin and drummer Randy Cooke In Our Blood can be pre-ordered here and ‘Heavy Heart’ is available to stream/download across all streaming platforms here.
