Help URIAH HEEP to Wake the Sleeper! sign now

We, long time fans of Uriah Heep from all over the world, are very disappointed and disgusted at the treatment that the band are getting from Universal Music and the seemingly lack of support from their management company Duroc Media.

Uriah Heeps long awaited new album Wake The Sleeper was recorded almost a year ago, but still hasnt been released! For the release and promotion of the album Heep signed with Sanctuary, which not much later was bought by Universal. The album was originally scheduled to be released in September 2007, and to be followed by a world tour. However, in August 2007 there was an official statement from Heeps manager, Simon Porter at Duroc Media, saying that the album release would be postponed until January 2008.

It is now late in February 2008, and still there is nothing, no news, no official statement from the management, no new album, nothing! There has been a mention about the album getting released in March, but that hasnt been officially confirmed at all, and it doesnt look like it will actually happen.

This situation is immensely frustrating, both for the band and the fans. The whole thing just doesnt seem right, Universal just dont seem to give Uriah Heep the support that they need and deserve. Uriah Heep are not some local pub act, they are one of the hardest working bands in British rock history, one of the cornerstones of heavy rock, around since 1970, influencing many other bands and selling almost 40 million albums worldwide along the way!!! They still continue to tour many countries, play with a lot of enthusiasm and give themselves for the full 100\% (and more!) each and every time they are on stage!

We think that Uriah Heep deserve the respect and backing of both their management and Universal Music. Therefore we ask Universal and Duroc Media to fulfill the deal that was made between Sanctuary and Uriah Heep. This album has been very long awaited by Uriah Heeps large and loyal fan base, so releasing and promoting Wake The Sleeper should make a good investment!!!
