Burn Halo moves album release date to March 31

BURN HALO -- former Eighteen Visions singer James Hart, Aaron Boheler (bass), Joey Sin (lead guitar), Allen Wheeler (rhythm guitar) and Ryan Folden (drums) — has moved the release date of their self-titled debut album to March 31 on Rawkhead Records (through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group).

The album’s first single, “Dirty Little Girl,” which features a guest appearance by Avenged Sevenfold’s Synyster Gates, is already getting spins on radio stations around the country and is climbing up the Active Rock charts: it’s currently #34 on BDS and #37 on Mediabase. It’s in regular rotation on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s “Octane” station as well as a number of prestigious radio stations nationwide including WCCC (Hartford), WIIL (Chicago), WRIF (Detroit), KFNK (Seattle) and KUPD (Phoenix).

A video for the track was recently shot in at the Slide Bar in Orange County, CA with Nate Weaver (Against Me!, Taking Back Sunday) at the director’s helm, and will be posted on the band’s Myspace page in the coming days.

In touring news, the Orange County, CA band has landed a handful of dates on the upcoming Rev Theory tour starting March 3. They’ll also be hooking up with the Avenged Sevenfold/Buckcherry tour on February 25 and 27, as well as additional dates starting March 19 in Philadelphia.

James Hart recorded the album from October to November of 2007 with songwriter Zac Maloy as producer, laying down the tracks with an army of skilled studio musicians, including Nickelback drummer Daniel Adair, former Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, guitarist Neil Tiemann (who now tours with “American Idol” winner David Cook), and Avenged Sevenfold’s Synyster Gates (who appears on “Dirty Little Girl” and “Anejo”).
