Rex Carroll (Whitecross, King James, the Rex Carroll Band) have entered the studio earlier this month (December 3rd) to begin recording a brand new Fierce Heart album.
Rex says, “A new Fierce Heart album is in pre-production right now. Recording have started on December 3rd at Girder Mode Studios.”
It’s been a long time coming. The first and only Fierce Heart album was released in 1985 on Mirage/Atlantic records.
Rex continues, “There will be nine songs, a guitar solo and a surprise bonus track.”
No information is available yet about a release date, but we’re sure it will be worth the wait!
Stay tuned ..
