Danish melodic heavy rockers STATEMENT are back and ready to unleash their fourth album. As an appetizer, they release today “The Reaper”, the first digital single from the album, which shows their impressive evolution as songwriters and as a band.
“The Reaper” is also the story of a regular family man, who hides a big secret – he has a passion for killing, which he lives out when his wife and kids think he’s working at night.
“The Reaper” digital single is out today and it’s available for streaming here.
Statement hail from the dusty and dirty suburbs of Copenhagen, combining the raw power of several genres with their field-warrior melodic heavy rock and their assertive metal approach to form their own unique sound – a sound that straddles hard rock, heavy metal and softer elements from the world of pop.
Formed in 2011, the band has focused since day one on writing ear-catching heavy rock that touches the very core of your soul. Statement released their debut album “Monsters” in 2014, followed by the second album “Heaven Will Burn” in 2016, and third album “Force of Life” in 2019, and is now coming with their fourth album in 2022.
Once again, the recordings were done with Søren Andersen behind the mixer in Medley Studios. This fiery combination between the band’s and Søren’s falconry for details and indomitable perfectionism has taken Statement’s universe to new heights, with even louder and more dynamic sound, especially coming from a special personal imprint and more convoluted band, where everyone has been involved in the songwriting.
The inspiration comes from Scorpions, Metallica and Accept but also welcomes newer names such as Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, and Disturbed.
A new Statement album will be released in 2022 via Mighty Music.
The band will play live in the UK, on The Robin 2, in Bliston, on 18th March 2022 together with Gin Annie. Get in touch with us if you want to cover this gig or interview the band at the venue. See the poster here.
