For some reason BMG has considered it necessary to start putting out old classic albums with "re-imagined artwork". It is the same new remastering already released on vinyl in 2015 & on CD in 2017, only packaging and artwork is different. It is done by Roger Dean who created also the original artwork. It will be available on both CD & vinyl. If someone thinks this is a must have then more information can be found here: https://www.musicglue.com/uriahheep/
John Lawton has recorded a new studio album with reformed Lucifer's Friend already in early 2018. There have deen delays in production and at the moment it looks like the album will be released in January 2019. The album will be titled Black Moon.
Canadian guitarist Dale Collins has been reporting already for a long time that there will be a new album together with by Bernie Shaw. The duo released an EP titled: Picking Locks back in 1999 as Collins-Shaw Project. The new group is called: "Bernie Shaw & Dale Collins".

Besides the old EP tracks you can also listen to rough mix of new track titled: Alone.
The complete Uriah Heep album back catalogue originally released on Bronze Records from 1970 to 1983 was re-released in 2015 on vinyl and during 2016 & 2017 they were all originally planned to be re-released also as double CD's with original LP on CD 1 and bonus tracks on CD 2. The campaign started in September 2016 with the new 2-disc anthology Your Turn To Remember: The Definitive Anthology 1970-1990 and the classic debut Very 'Eavy ... Very 'Umble (1970). The second album Salisbury (1971) followed in October. The next three albums Look At Yourself (1971), Demons And Wizards & The Magician's Birthday (both 1972) were released in March 2017. At the moment there is no any information when and if the series will continue.
The first single from solo album by Uriah Heep ex-bass guitarist Trevor Bolder was released in digital format in March already in March 2017 and can be bought e.g. from iTunes or Amazon. The full album was supposed to follow soon but at the moment there's no release date or other information. A website trevorboldersoloalbum.wordpress.com and Facebook page facebook.com/trevorboldersoloalbum exist but they haven't been updated in a long time.
Bolder died of cancer in 2013 and the album has been in the making ever since. His unfinished and unreleased recordings in his home studio are used as the basis for this and the album will feature several guest appearances, e.g Mick Box, Lee Kerslake, Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott and Laurie Wisefield of Wishbone Ash among other.
Ken Hensley has recently told he will soon start to record a new studio album. There is no other information or release date yet.
