"WAKE THE SLEEPER"
1. WAKE THE SLEEPER
Uriah Heep released their 21st studio album titled Wake The Sleeper on Sanctuary Records in June 2008 in Europe and Japan. In North America it was released in August 2008. The album is available both on cd and limited edition vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
The recordings of the album - their first in almost ten years - were completed already in the Summer of 2007 but due to Universal Music taking over the record company Sanctuary Records the release had to be postponed.
This is the first record to feature the new line-up with drummer Russell Gilbrook. He replaced long time band member Lee Kerslake who had to leave due to health reasons in early 2007.
