EX-18 VISIONS FRONTMAN JAMES HART TO CALL NEW BAND “BURN HALO”

100

James HartAccording to SMNnews.com, ex-18 Visions frontman and Deciblog favorite James Hart has decided to call his new solo band Burn Halo. When we spoke with James back in October he told us he intended on simply calling the project “James Hart”:

So what will the configuration of the new project be? Will it be billed as “James Hart” or “James Hart and the XYZ’s” or will it be a band name?

I think I’m geared towards just using my name. I haven’t abandoned the idea of the B and C options, but I don’t quite feel like it is a band effort as far as the writing and ideas come. I feel like this is my vision. I’ve worked really hard over the years to get where I’m at. Right now, I’m not totally comfortable having a real band that shares ideas and decisions. So right now, I feel like James Hart is the way to go.

We suppose that James (or Island Records) had second thoughts, probably for the better. Burn Halo is actually a pretty rad sounding name, methinks, though perhaps he should just consider naming the thing “Scott Weiland and the Burn Halos.”

Burn Halo has a new song called “Save Me” on their MySpace, in addition to the previously posted two, though no release date for the album has been announced yet. The new song is definitely the best of three.
