'The Disconnect' is HEART OF A COWARD's fourth full-length album and the first to feature frontman Kaan Tasan. Once again, sound engineers Justin Hill (recording) and Will Putney (mixing and mastering) were involved to make it a roaring success. The writing process for 'The Disconnect' has been long and gradual, with initial work beginning in 2017.
Forming the album started with rough instrumental ideas being pieced together - Steve Haycock, guitarist recalled, "'The Disconnect' was not an easy process to begin with after such an extended hiatus, but once the wheels started rolling it was business as usual. Kaan was really involved with the writing process throughout which gave us a new element to focus on when writing”.
Kaan Tasan, who joined the band in late 2017 agreed, "It was one of the most challenging and rewarding writing processes I've ever been involved with. Some tracks just clicked and fell into place, whilst other tracks really pushed us all creatively. It was important for us to get the best out of each other – we really did all go in on this together”.
Discussing the more conceptual aspects of the record, Chris Mansbridge, drummer commented, 'The Disconnect' refers to the feeling of a complete lack of control over your surroundings and the powers that control your life. It’s the feeling of hopelessness, anger and an inability to relate to the world you live in. Its a record we are all extremely proud of and this marks the next chapter of HEART OF A COWARD.”
HEART OF A COWARD have come a long way since their inception in 2009 - racking up admirable praise from press and fans alike, not forgetting the countless touring miles under their belts.
Formed in Milton Keynes in 2009, HEART OF A COWARD have released three albums to date; 'Hope And Hindrance' (2012), 'Severance' (2013) and 'Deliverance' (2015). Defined by their sheer power and tenacity, the band are celebrated stalwarts of the British metal scene, known for their dynamic live shows and masterful performances. Their focus has always been on producing crushing, yet discerning heavy music; their sound defined by its combination of pure force and expertise, complemented by more subtle, emotional moments and personal narratives. With the addition of new front-man Kaan Tasan in early 2018, HEART OF A COWARD are excited to herald in a new era, alongside the myriad of possibilities that new creative blood holds.
