SEE WHAT THE PRESS HAS BEEN SAYING ABOUT HEAVY FRUIT

“The song (No Visitors from Heavy Fruit) takes the band’s brand of fire-roasted metalcore and Ping-Pongs it between speedy, heads-down, mosh pit-ready aggression and massive, melodic spaciousness that, in a just world, would be a staple of classic rock playlists come the year 2046.
-AltPress

“Overall, ‘Heavy Fruit’ is a impressively consistent record that fans of heavy music should absolutely check out.”
Revovler (4.5/5 Stars)

The wait has been worth it
Last.fm

It only takes one listen to be fully seduced by whatever witchy thing He Is Legend has brewing.”
New Noise Magazine (4.5/5 Stars)

Its depth requires the listener to substantially invest themselves, but it shouldn’t take more than a few listens until the hooks covertly take hold.”
The PRP

If MetalSucks were able to cover only ten bands, we’d wage war to ensure that He Is Legend is one of them. HIL is both elemental and innovative, simultaneously familiar and singular, simple and sophisticated.
MetalSucks

A deft blend of heaviness, catchiness, and fervor, Heavy Fruit will prove to be worth the wait for fans of He Is Legend.
Lambgoat

Heavy Fruit is an addicting listen, and only gets better with each subsequent press of the play button.
– Heavy Blog is Heavy (4.5/5 Stars)

Their style of rock weighs with whiskey, cigarettes, and magick overtones.

He Is Legend Stream “Heavy Fruit” on Revolver

(Wilmington, NC) – He Is Legend has partnered up with Revolvermag.com to stream their new album Heavy Fruit. The record is the band’s first new release since their 2009 cult classic It Hates You. During the hiatus, the band says they never lost touch and guitarist Adam Tanbouz never stopped writing.

We needed the time off because we had been doing it for ten years and just needed a break. I think the time is what shaped the new record.” says vocalist Schuylar Croom.

Earlier this year, the band felt they had a new spark musically and the time was right to record their fourth full-length album. They brought back previous producer/band member Mitch Marlow (In This Moment, Filter) and enlisted Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Saliva) to mix the record.
 
 “After a five-year hiatus from songwriting, North Carolina sludge-rock quintet He Is Legend craft an unusually satisfying blend of styles on their fourth album, building on their previous records,” says David McKenna of Revolver Magazine. “‘No Visitors’ starts the album off with a bang, with powerful melodic choruses spliced between groovy southern riffs. This dynamic recurs throughout ‘Heavy Fruit’, and what stands out is how well the band executes each of these seemingly disparate elements. Their sludge sections are as good as they come, but what really makes He Is Legend’s sound unique is their penchant for writing colorful, emotional melodies and harmonies that somehow manage to complement the heavy-hitting core. While some might compare the band’s alchemy to Mastodon, it’s more accurate to say that He Is Legend is exploring novel musical territory. Their melodicism seems to take influences from many styles—grunge, emo, andpost-hardcore among them—but never sounds forced amid heavier elements. ‘This Will Never Work’ features a soaring vocal harmony chorus that’s followed by a pummeling hard-rock riff. ‘Time To Stain’ starts as what seems like a token acoustic ballad, but builds into powerful, cathartic rock song. Overall, ‘Heavy Fruit’ is a impressively consistent record that fans of heavy music should absolutely check out.

You can order Heavy Fruit through the Tragic Hero Records website and get an instant download of the song “Miserable Company.” Exclusive bundles are available that include t-shirts and posters. See below for the tracklisting and the remaining tour dates with Maylene & The Sons of Disaster and Wilson.

He Is Legend Partners with Last.fm to Stream New Song “Spout Mouth”

(Wilmington, NC) –  He Is Legend is streaming another new song off their upcoming album Heavy Fruit. The track “Spout Mouth” is exclusively streaming on Last.fm alongside a special interview with vocalist Schuylar Croom.
 
As stated by Last.fm: “He Is Legend (5 million scrobbles) is back with their first new record since 2009′s It Hates You (19k listeners), and with only a week until Heavy Fruit hits shelves, we scored a few minutes to talk to lead singer, Schuylar Croom, and bring you the premiere of a brand new song from the forthcoming record.”
 
“From what we have heard so far, Heavy Fruit is potentially heavier/bluesier than other recent music… citing some fan feedback on Last.fm users who have been following track leaks as they drop, brings comments like ‘[you] haven’t changed [your] sound as drastically as has been done in the past albums… not a bad thing though because the sound suits so well.’  All in all, the fanbase has been saying that “The wait has been worth it”.  Tags such as post-hardcore, beardcore, sludge metal & southern rock dominate the band’s profile, from their top scrobbled track ‘The Seduction’ right down to the most recent album leaks.  Read along for some words from Schuylar on writing and consuming an ALBUM as a whole, and the premiere of ‘Spout Mouth’…continue reading” 

 

Heavy Fruit will be out via Tragic Hero Records on August 19th and marks the band’s  first new record since 2009’s It Hates You. The album was produced by Mitch Marlow (In This Moment, Filter) and mixed by Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Saliva).
