‘HEARTSTRINGS’ FEATURING JOHN MITCHELL OUT NOW ON DSP’S.
‘RECOVER’ ALBUM OUT AUGUST 20TH
FFO: Haken, Voyager, Muse
Synth-rock outfit Kyros have revealed the next instalment in their ‘RECOVER’ album’s tracklist, in the form of the song ‘Heartstrings’ by Frost*, featuring none other than special guest John Mitchell, vocalist of Frost* himself.
Kyros will return to the live circuit throughout August and September
‘RECOVER’ is a selection of cover songs featuring special guests that the band recorded throughout lockdown last year as well as some more choice cuts to add to the collection.
‘RECOVER’ will be released on CD and digital format on August 20th 2021 via White Star Records.
Some of the guests on the album include John Mitchell of Frost*/Lonely Robot, and Ray Hearne of Haken and Andy Robison of IHLO.
John Mitchell says this about the collaboration
‘Hearing new young bands such as Kyros say that they are influenced by the music that Jem & I have written is quite flattering and it was fun to guest with them for their online performance of ‘Heartstrings’. Certainly helped to brighten up the tedium of lockdown!’
Peter (Bass Guitar) says this about the collaboration
“I’ve been wanting to perform with some high-calibre guests for quite some time. These covers were a perfect opportunity to do so. I’ve been following John Mitchell since my early teens and I remember admiring his talent from the front row at ‘It Bites’ and ‘Blind Ego’ concerts.”
Standing as one of many bands that have adapted to a new professional landscape in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Isolation Sessions that resulted in ‘Celexa Streams’ became favourably viewed as an opportunity for Kyros fans to gather together with a shared love of the band’s music and to feel the support of a music based community throughout the pandemic.
This will be the first musical output since singer and keyboard player of Kyros, Shelby Logan Warne, announced that she is transgender and currently undergoing transitioning. The overwhelming support from Kyros fans has instilled a new wave of motivation and creative inspiration for the four piece, who embark on the road next month to perform live.

Other releases out now by Kyros include their ‘Four of Fear’ EP and ‘Celexa Dreams’ album plus live album ‘Celexa Streams’.
Bright, colourful and brimming with nostalgic influence, Kyros’s music is available to stream and purchase digitally via this link, with physical copies now available to order via Kyros’ merch storeand the White Star Recordswebsite.

Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Put on your headphones and go out into the sunlight my friend, and bring ‘Celexa Dreams’ with you”
