VON HERTZEN BROTHERS will issue new digital single, ‘Sunday Child’, on September 11th via Spinefarm Records; the third single to be drawn from the Finnish band’s latest / sixth‘New Day Rising’ album, it features a specially edited / re-mastered version of the song, along with a previously unavailable extra track – a live version of ‘Mustapha’ (originally recorded by Queen for their 1978 album ‘Jazz’), featuring Finnish outfit Rubik.
‘Sunday Child’ will be supported by a video September 25th – filmed at Söderskär’s Lighthouse Island in Helsinki’s outer archipelago; the band – brothers Mikko, Kie & Jonne Von Hertzen, plus drummer Mikko Kaakkuriniemi & keyboard player Juha Kuoppala – played an exclusive show on the Island and had the entire event filmed with a view to creating something truly memorable…
“It’s a remote, rugged and expansive location,” explains Mikko, “with a 150 year old lighthouse; it fits perfectly with the atmosphere and story of ‘Sunday Child’. The goal was to capture this magical late August day from beginning to end, so the video is like a diary or a photo album of this special event and our gig by the open sea…”
ON THE live front, VHB – who recently played live at the Prog Awards in London – have headline shows lined up stretching through to late November; they will be visiting Sweden, Denmark & Germany, as well as playing the prestigious Tavastia Club in Helsinki on September 12th.
The ‘New Day Rising’ album, produced by the Grammy-nominated Garth ‘GGGarth’ Richardson and mixed by Juno Awards winner Randy Staub, is available now; it has been nominated in the ‘Album Of The Year’ category at this year’s Classic Rock Awards.
