Formed back in the early ’80s under the name Tokyo Rose, the band started out playing the local North East circuit, quickly earning themselves a reputation as part of the developing NWOBHM scene. Following an initial demo, the band were signed to Roadrunner Records who were already a leading European label.
During this period the band name was changed to Dark Heart and in 1984 the debut album “Shadows Of The Night” was released.
The band returned to the studio to work on a second album but unfortunately the line-up did not stabilise long enough to achieve this.
However, following negotiations with Sleaszy Rider Records, founder member Alan Clark has resurrected Dark Heart with a brand new line-up consisting of guitar virtuoso Nick Catterick and former Warrior rhythm section Duncan Emmerson (bass) and Elliot Sneddon (drums). The band have agreed a two album deal and are currently writing and recording new material which will hopefully gain them a new following whilst re-uniting them with old friends!
